Congrats sachin sir.......for ur Memorable 50th Test hundred.

Congrats sachin sir.......for ur Memorable  50th Test hundred

A small step to save Centurion, and a giant leap for Test cricket

source:yahoo.com

Sachin Tendulkar has reached where no other man may reach again. At 7.36 pm Indian time, he pushed Dale Steyn through a heavily manned cover for four, bringing up his 50th Test hundred.
While it is a milestone to be celebrated, it is a job only half done in the Centurion Test, where India are hanging by a thread.


Tendulkar, playing his 175th Test, is on his fifth Test tour of South Africa and India have won just one match here, in 2006.

Meet the boy who stumped Sachin

15-yr-old Leukaemia patient's only wish was to meet the master blaster. With a volley of insightful questions about his career, Varun Kumar impressed Sachin with his knowledge of cricket.
Loved by millions across the world, Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar continues to be a true role model both on and off the field.




An NGO approached the little master requesting him to grant a 15-year-old leukemia patient an audience.


Touched by the bleak condition of the teenager, Sachin decided to bring cheer to the life of the young struggler.
Yesterday morning was a special day in the life of Varun Sudhir Kumar.


After all he was granted his wish of meeting his idol Sachin Tendulkar. Sachin invited Varun to his Bandra residence and patiently answered all the questions that the youngster had.

Impressed by his knowledge, Sachin tweeted, "Even adults haven't asked me such insightful questions. He is one of the brightest kids I have ever met. I pray for his speedy recovery."

   meet the boy who stumped sachin

Wish for it

Sadaf Hussain, National Co-ordination Corporate Partnership and Communication Make a wish foundation of India fulfills the inner most wishes of children suffering from life threatening illness.

Mukul Gupte, CEO of Make-A-Wish Foundation India, said that the child had been waiting for months to meet his hero.

"We usually ask a child to give us two options apart from their first wish so that if we can't make one happen we can try for the others.

However this boy's only wish was to meet Sachin and he didn't want anything else," said Gupte, adding that Tendulkar's commitment was brilliant.

"He doesn't just shake a hand or take a picture with the child. He plays with the kids and spends quality time with them. We haven't seen the same levels of dedication from any other celebrity," said Gupte.

Tendulkar has so far helped the foundation with over twenty such wishes.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation is currently hosting a Wishing Well Weekend until Sunday at Phoenix Mills, the proceeds of which will go towards helping other such children.

Varun: Which is your dearest score? Your 200 vs South Africa or your international debut match where you scored 15 runs against Pakistan?
Sachin: The 15 runs against Pakistan was more important because from there I got the start. I got the feeling that I can play against any bowler in the world.
Varun: I know that your personal dream is to win the World Cup 2011. What are your preparations?
Sachin: I am doing lot of hard work for it. I am practicing and I am focussed on the World Cup. I and my team members have started planning for that.
Varun: This will be a different kind of World Cup, because you have 3 countries and all have different pitches. In Bangladesh, the pitches will have more moisture and in Sri Lanka, the team batting second will benefit from the wicket. How will your team cope with that?
Sachin: I know the World Cup will be very challenging for us, pitches and grounds also matter a lot. It is a World Cup and you have to play against different teams, so you have to make strategies like that. World Cup is not like a five-match series, where you plan about a particular team, and you know that you have to play five matches against one team.
Varun: How did you feel when you faced Waqar Younis?
Sachin: When I got to the pitch, it looked very different from domestic cricket. I was nervous, scared and had lot of pressure on me. When I got out on 15 runs, I said to God - 'give me one more chance' and in next match I scored 59 runs and from there I knew I can play any bowler in the world. All you need to have is a strong heart. If you have a strong heart you can beat anybody.

Varun: How did you react, when you were hit on the nose by Waqar's delivery? Did you black out?
Sachin: Mujhe bahut gussa aya. Abh tho hum ne soch liya ke isko nahin chhodegey. Agar woh match mein main nahin khelta, tho, hum match har sakte the.
Varun: Why are you not playing T-20 internationals?
Sachin: In 2007 I refused because I had a few injuries, and I knew I would not be able to give 100 per cent to my team. T20 is a form of game where even if one player is not giving his 100 percent, your team will be in trouble.

Q&A session between Varun and Sachin
Varun Kumar met his role model Sachin Tendulkar at the cricketer's Bandra home. The little master patiently answered all the questions that he had.

Sachin asked Varun: Which one do you like the most - T20, 50-over match or Test cricket

Varun: 50-over match, as it requires the mental and physical fitness to be very high to play a 50 over match.
Varun: You are such a big cricketer, why do you need a coach in the team?
Sachin: Although I know about cricket, coaches are needed for youngsters, but at the same time we also need a good friend with whom we share our personal thought and feelings and we have them in the form of a coach.
Varun: Can you give me some batting tips? How should we play? Should we play straight shorts or cut or pull shot?
Sachin: Initially you should play straight shots. As you spend more time on the wicket, then you can play the cut or pull or whatever shot you like.


The lines Varun wrote for Sachin
"You are like a passion for me, to meet you is a dream for me. I first saw you on television playing for our mother land India, that day, I told myself to become like you. As I grow up I understood how difficult it is to become like you"

What is confidence and dedication?

What is confidence and dedication? One incidence is quoted.
India vs Australia [2004] match...
Brad Hogg took Sachin's wicket.
cid:image001.jpg@01CAEAE2.ED92CD90cid:image002.jpg@01CAEAE2.ED92CD90
At the end of the match Hogg gave that
Ball to Sachin for his autograph.
Sachin put his sign with one beautiful sentence,
"IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN." –
                                cid:image003.jpg@01CAEAE2.ED92CD90
Till today Hogg could not take his wicket for the second time.
THAT'S CONFIDENCE & DEDICATION..!
HATS OFF TO OUR LITTLE MASTER SACHIN.
After this incident Brad Hogg and Sachin Tendulkar came face to face 21 times...but he could never get the Master Blaster out :-)
Howzaaat!

Age is just a number after all

Isn't it difficult to believe that Sachin Tendulkar enters his 37th year on Saturday? Somehow, it seems only yesterday that he started his international career but we have to pinch ourselves to remind us that it was in Pakistan way back in November 1989.

He started his way out as a curly haired 16-year-old and seems to have drunk from the fountain of youth. Like the evergreen Dev Anand of the silver screen, he seemingly can just go on and on. He has frequently spoken of his one remaining dream to be achieved – to be a member of the World Cup winning team.

He gets the opportunity next year and while conventional wisdom is that he will ride off into the sunset following that Fifty50 tournament whether India wins or not, gamblers will do well to hesitate before placing any bets on this. One would indeed not be surprised if he is still around to represent the country in the 2015 World Cup. So what if he will be 42? Age is just a number after all for cricketers like Tendulkar.

Watching him on the field these days it is difficult to believe that he is the senior most cricketer in the game today. Whether batting or fielding, whether leading the side or sending down his occasional cocktail of leg breaks, off breaks and googlies he could well be the junior most player around. His enthusiasm is boundless and time and age have not withered his skill or lessened his hunger for success.

If anything like good wine, he is getting better with age as his recent performances in all formats of the game clearly illustrates. Moreover, this keenness is infectious as the Mumbai Indians campaign in the IPL has underlined. The players responded spontaneously with the result that Mumbai Indians topped the table at the end of the league stage when it was not necessarily the strongest among the eight outfits in a highly competitive field. A victory on Sunday will be the perfect birthday present for Tendulkar. 

Being a living legend has its own responsibilities - and pitfalls. Nothing but the best is expected from you all the time and particularly when you are an Indian the pressures are unthinkable. But, Tendulkar has carried these hopes and aspirations on his shoulders for two decades now whether it is Test cricket, ODIs or leading the side in the IPL.

Twenty20 they said was a young man's game but then they underestimated Tendulkar's sublime skills. He has proved that cricket's newest and shortest format is not just about fours and sixes and big hits but there is a place for strokes that are a blend of timing and placement.

He has based his game on playing cricketing shots and the results are there for all to see – he is the leading run getter in the IPL and with an impressive strike rate to boot. No wonder, there was a clamour for his inclusion in the Twenty20 World Cup side for on form there is little doubt that he can walk into the side.

However, he made it clear three years ago that he wasn't going to play Twenty20 internationals and such is the respect for his views that the campaign for his inclusion soon petered out.

I have never seen the knowledgeable Chepauk spectators in such a fix as they were during the match between Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians last week. They wanted their team to win which was perfectly natural, but they also wanted Tendulkar to succeed.

It reminded me of the predicament that Neville Cardus found himself in around a hundred years ago when as a schoolboy he wanted England to win but he also wanted his hero Victor Trumper to get a hundred. That's Tendulkar for you. He commands spontaneous respect from every corner of the country.

It is not easy to maintain a squeaky clean image in a game beset by controversies and even scandals. It is not easy to maintain one's popularity for 20 years and continue to be successful in all formats of the game for an extended period.

Let's not make the mistake of writing off Sachin Tendulkar – a mistake that a prominent national newspaper did in 2006 after he had a few failures in the Test matches in Pakistan.

It carried a short news item on page one headlined "Endulkar?'' I am reminded of this every time he goes through a purple patch which he is enjoying at the moment or when he sets a world record which he did at Gwalior a couple of months ago.

The now infamous headline can be summarily dismissed as sensationalism or a vulgarly irresponsible job by a deskman who tried to be too clever but was made to eat humble and distasteful pie.

Tendulkar will go out on his own terms and on a high. In the meantime, let us wish the perennially young man many happy returns of the day, a memorable year and many more years of service to Indian cricket!

sachin creates again record .. first cricketer 200 runs in odi ..sachin love u..and miss u..




http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hwoND1zj5eQGwalior: His heart larger than frame, Sachin Tendulkar lifted his arms in triumph. At 36, he had become the first man to conjure a double hundred in One-Day Internationals.
The maestro's unbeaten 200 was an epic effort of focus, flair and dare. His passion for the golden Indian crest undiminished, the little big man oozed character after India elected to bat and ran up a mammoth 401 for three — its highest score against South Africa — on a belter at the Roop Singh Stadium.
In the process, he delighted with bold brush strokes of genius on the canvas; the colours celebrated batsmanship. He still is an explosive athlete; he still has the eye of the tiger.
Man-of-the-Match Tendulkar's spirit-lifting effort proved a match-winning one. South Africa wilted under the pressure of a big chase to go down by 153 runs. With a match remaining, India has taken a winning 2-0 lead in the series.
A.B. de Villers, using his feet well, working the ball around and finding the gaps, made a defiant unbeaten 114, but South Africa was in with little chance. To make matters worse for the visitors, the ball kept a shade low under the lights.
Tendulkar's world record double hundred was yet another landmark for the champion in a career of miles and milestones.
Pavilion in Tendulkar's name
The pavilion at the Roop Singh Stadium here will be named after him. A road in the city will also bear the maestro's name shortly.
“I need the good wishes of the people. It is the prayers of the people that have helped me in my career,'' he said.
Tendulkar added, “I do not play for records. I enjoy my cricket and I play with passion. I have done this for 20 years.''
The legend said he had struck a purple patch since the 2007 World Cup.
Asked about his record-breaking double hundred, he said, “I realised I had a chance when I got to 180 with so many overs left.''
On being at 199 at the start of the final over, he said, “I knew I would get my chance in the over. I will remember this innings. But I will not compare it with my other efforts. Each innings is different, the circumstances are different.
“No record is unbreakable. But I would be happy if an Indian breaks my record.'' He gave credit to Dinesh Karthik, Yusuf Pathan and M.S. Dhoni for their efforts. “Yusuf and Dhoni, in particular, played some very big shots.''
Electrifying atmosphere
Earlier, the atmosphere inside the stadium was electrifying as Tendulkar glided paceman Charl Langveldt to squarish third-man off the third ball of the 50th over and scampered for a single for his 200th run.
The crowd erupted, non-striker Dhoni and the South Africans walked up to congratulate the legend, and his teammates in the pavilion were up on their feet.
Soon, Tendulkar, undefeated, walked back to a standing ovation. His monumental double century (200, 147b, 25x4, 3x6) was his 46th ODI century. Opening the innings, he had batted through the 50 overs. Tendulkar's commitment shone through in the manner he ran between the wickets. He also batted through pain.
The hectic brace in the 47th over – third ball – when he worked left-arm paceman Wayne Parnell behind square and completed two enabled him to go past the previous highest ODI score – 194 by Pakistan's Saeed Anwar and Charles Coventry of Zimbabwe.
Tendulkar, his sights set on a historic double century, was restrained in his celebrations, attending to his right hamstring even as Dhoni and Mark Boucher greeted his achievement.
The Indian innings also featured a busy 79 (85b, 4x4, 3x6) of crisp hitting by Dinesh Karthik – he added 194 for the second wicket with Tendulkar. Also a power-packed 23-ball 36 from Yusuf Pathan, in the batting Power Play overs between 35 and 39 South Africa conceded 63, and a brutal 68 not out (35b, 7x4, 4x6) by Dhoni. The Indian captain bludgeoned the South African pacemen with wristy blows of immense power.
The astonishing afternoon, however, belonged to Tendulkar. He was light on his feet and heavy with his shots. His batsmanship does have an ethereal quality about it.
It is also timeless; the ease with which Tendulkar rolls back the years is remarkable.
The maestro's symphony in front of a delirious crowd here had some captivating notes. His mind and body in harmony, Tendulkar cover-drove Parnell to the fence. Nobody moved as the ball struck the boards. The outfield was fast, Tendulkar's timing made it appear quicker.
The feature of his batting has always been his ability to pick the length in a jiffy. He, thus, is decisive as he ventures into a front-foot drive or punches, cuts or pulls off his back-foot.
When Steyn bounced at Tendulkar, he was pulled fiercely. Tendulkar was meeting fire with fire.
All the aspects were in order - a still head, a high left-elbow, and a lovely extension of the willow - as he off-drove Parnell. Tendulkar's batting is underlined by perfect balance.
The maestro's innings was splendidly paced. His 50 consumed 37 balls, 100 came off 90, and 150 off 118. The South Africans ran out of ideas.
