Farewell Bid to the Little Master-Sachin Tendulkar

The man because of whom Cricket became a Religion in India,because of whom Cricket found a new meaning in India,Yes you guessed it right “The God of Cricket” as fondly he is known–None other than Sachin Tendulkar is all set to bid farewell from all the formats of Cricket in November…A Journey of 24 years is coming to an end this November.. 😦

At 16 years of age when Sahin Tendulkar came out in Indian Jersey no one did ever imagined that he would be the one of the legend in Cricket that India has ever produced,A man of great Calmness,in the league of his own–his zeal to play Cricket is the main weapon in his success…

This is to you master for whom I came to know what Cricket is?There will always be a void,a void no one will ever be able to fill…I bow to “Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar

Here are few lines dedicated to the Master of Cricket:-

Out he comes with his bat;
The Sun Shining overhead,
Blowers ready with different tactics
To get him off the track;

They simply try bouncers,yorker
Short Balls,good length to name a few,
Yet he stands tall facing them with the hue;

But the Final run is near
The last swing of his bat dear to all is here,
The void,emptiness you create is immeasurable
Still The God of Cricket
I bow to you forever

Sachin Tendulkar

“All my life, I have had a dream of playing cricket for India. I have been living this dream every day for the last 24 years. It’s hard for me to imagine a life without playing cricket because it’s all I have ever done since I was 11 years old,” Tendulkar said in the release issued by BCCI .

The Arch-Rivals Of Cricket

India-Pakistan

India-Pakistan Champions Trophy

When we do a random search in Google as ‘Arch Rivals of Cricket’,the first result that google throws is ‘India-Pakistan Cricket Rivalry‘.That is the impact of a cricket match between India and Pakistan whether it a is final,warm-up,friendly,league match or a dead rubber match in ICC Champions Trophy which is to held on 15th June 2013.

India-A Strong Contender to lift the Champions Trophy.
Pakistan-Out of the Tournament.

Still the heat of this match is never coming down and a much awaited match for all Cricket Lovers of both the nations.

If we go by the Champions Trophy perspective this match has no significance as India is through to the semi-finals having won their previous 2 matches and Pakistan out of the tournament losing their previous 2 matches.But from the perspective of the cricket fans from both the nations this is going to be a High Voltage Match as with all the other matches between India and Pakistan.

Cricket being considered as a religion in India and also may be in Pakistan,a match between these two teams is always a fulltoo entertainer.With the tickets being sold out for the match within hours of going on sale last November this match looked like a huge entertainer is now just a dead rubber but nevertheless the sporting contests between the arch-rivals are never irrelevant for players and millions of fans across the globe as heroes turn villains or vice-versa depending on the result.

Going by the Team comparison India Team looks better than Pakistan Team,with players like Shikhar Dhawan twingling his moustache,the charismatic Virat Kohli,Sir Ravindra Jadeja,pacerhead Umesh Yadav,Bhuvaneshwar Kumar,Rohit Sharma after getting so many chance is now showing some gratitude towards the team,Suresh Raina the middle order lifeline and leading them from the front The Captain Cool MS Dhoni.

Having said all that,the Pakistan is also geared up for this match and will try with all their might to put the best foot forward and will leave no stone unturned with the likes of Mohd.Hafeez the allrounder,Kamran Akmal,Imran Farhat,the experienced Sohaib Malik,Saeed Ajmal,pacerhead Wahab Riaz and Mohd.Irfan and leading them the Captain Msibah-ul-Haq who is any day a delight to watch for his batting skills

In their recent encounter of 3 day ODI series held in India,Pakistan won the series 2-1 and the 2 t20 International series results was a draw with both team winning a match.But these results are past and lot of things has changed since then.It is considered a myth that when a India-Pakistan match is on the card it is more of a show of Indian Batting versus Pakistanis Bowling and that holds true for this match also.

The match is scheduled on a Saturday which is very good because cricket fans like me don’t want to miss this match even for a second and saturday being a weekend there is no issue as I will free from regular duties and will stick to my TV from 3pm onwards.

At last Wishing best of luck to both the teams and to the people of both the nations and may the deserving team win this match and The game is played in the True Spirits of  Cricket.
