Indicast # 188: Sachin.. Sachin...

Wednesday, 20 November 2013 05:30

Statisticians love to debate about whether Sachin Tendulkar is indeed one of the best batsmen that the game has ever seen. Perhaps not. He ranks 29th according to one analysis. But Sachin has captured the imagination of world cricket like no other player. In India he is revered for his performances on and off the field. As he calls curtains on a glorious career, we look back at his exploits with the bat including the stroke-filled 74 at the Wankhede. We were there. At the stadium. And it was a joy to watch him regain some of his lost touch. (Picture credit: CrazyValue.com
