    My original point was just that since these guys played together at some point of time, they will have a connection that Lara, Ponting, Kallis, Dravid don't. And when they see this guy traversing the post-modern game of T20s and the new environment, they will feel somewhere that they are being represented. He is echoing them, he is doing it on their behalf, showing that people from that era would not have been out of place in today's game. He is acting, as I said, not merely as a bridge, but a big-ass toll highway.

    the people from the 90s who 'cannot comprehend' how great Tendulkar is
    And I never said this. I said the 90s kids perhaps do not/can not comprehend how unusual his career is. You have such an issue with Tendulkar fan boys, Ikki. I get it. They are irritating. But I am not one of them. Even if I was, you should really not be the one to speak out with that signature of yours.

    That's fair enough. Actually, I find that a very good and fitting point to make. Apologies, I took it to mean something totally different.

    In my opinion Shane Warne is the greatest cricketer who's ever lived - Ian Botham

    Warne is the greatest cricketer to pick up a ball ever.

    Harsh... not many people achieve what you have achieved. You brought an argument with Ikki to a logical conclusion that even Ikki accepts.. You are the SAchin Tendulkar of CW..
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    “@KathrynWicksSMH: Tendulkar, to wife: You're the best partnership I have had in my life.” Massive snub to Vinod Kambli. Put on 664.

    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    At the risk of restarting the debate I have to point out that this is wrong.
    In the 4th test at Sialkot, Tendulkar came to the crease when India were 38-4 still trailing Pakistan by 40 in the 2nd innings. He and Sidhu saved the game by scoring fifties

    Folks, a general warning to everyone to keep it civil. Just because you disagree with a poster does not give you license to insult him.
