My 2 cents

A tale of three centuries…

Posted in Bangalore, cricket, something I like by urmilesh on April 16, 2010

The first time I saw GOD (he was still called Sachin Tendulkar then) bat in a stadium, it was an India-SriLanka test match in Lucknow. He did not disappoint me, he scored a fluent 142, India won the match, and I got my money’s worth.

The next time I got to see him bat live, it was in Kanpur, in a one day match between India and Australia. Once again he stepped forward and treated me to a brisk century (100 off 89 balls with 7 sixes), India won the match and I was on top of the world.

The only format in which I have not seen him bat live yet is the Twenty-Twenty format. This aberration will be taken care of tomorrow when I get to watch his team (it literally is the Indian team of the nineties, they win only when he does well) Mumbai Indians in their league match against Bangalore (in IPL). So keeping the past tradition in mind, a century is in order and a win looks inevitable.

Can’t wait 🙂
