    Don't worry, as you yourself said, he has billions of shameless, brainless fans... I'm sure they'll make sure he's remembered for his wonderful achievements

    I'll remember him for failing to stick up for Vinod Kambli when the latter was out of form. Disgraceful.

    Again, the comparisons with Sachin and you ring true.

    Brainless fans = GIMH by the way

    Reckon he'll score a century in one of his remaining innings.

    This tour will be a bookie paradise in India.

    I've often wondered about the political leanings of Sachin I have heard he is linked to the more liberal Congress party - but have always suspected he may lean to the right wing if pressed.

    He accepted an honorary membership of the upper house of the legislature offered by the congress govt.....not sure what to make of his political leanings from it
    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

    Definitely won't score a ton, though he might scrape a 50 I suppose. Will give him 130-150 runs for the series.
