Cricket: Humble Pie served from Peshawar.

It is not Endulkar it is TENDULKAR. The T stands for Tonnes he has scored, 39 in all next best being 23. It is Endulkar of certain bullshit in the minds of experts, writers, and spectators who had made sure that it is over for Tendulkar. I just have two things to say which is what cricket or that matter anything in life is all about.
It is never over until it is over.
The class is permanent and form is temporary.
He started cautiously and Pathan again. He scored 65 at run a ball. It was good going as Asif gave away hardly anything. Then Dhoni too struggle it out in the middle. Yuvraj Singh is a very good finisher. I prefer Kaif at three down followed by Dravid and then Yuvraj. The reason being Kaif has better technique and needs time to settle down. The new role of Dravid following down the order is a sensible one as it provides solidity in the middle and Yuvraj is a very good finisher in the ODI.
I think Pakistan pulled it back at the death Indians did not quiet manage to bat Pakistan out of the match. I think it is going to be leather chase for long. Indians have to manage a long Pakistani batting line up. My cause of concern is Shahid Afridi and Kamran Akmal. Inzamam not being in best of health might struggle. There is always a chance with Mohammed Yousuf who either gets LBW or causes a run out.
Indians have scored runs so will the Pakistani. It is a run-filled carnival with bowling being battered to all parts of the ground.
There was a lot of dissension on Tendulkar. I hope people enjoy the humble pie served from Peshawar. He has baked his critics from a century and I hope he has enjoyed the meal.

Can't agree with you more on this..Check out more Tendulkar at http:\\criclogger.blogspot.com. Sad that we lost in the end.

Even though I had no doubts about him, I hope this century shuts those idiots up.

By the way, did you notice, there is no honorable mention of the century in the press! When he 'fails', people go bonkers on him, and when he scores, it is 'business as usual'.

STUPID!

@ Sudeep:I don't think we have tp lend your time to everyone.The next time I would meet Moin i would like to show a video clip of how Tendulkar bowled him between his legs...

indian media is known for negative bias. Tendulkar is a seasoned contender. I knew it was coming. He's always bounced back and slammed on the face of his critiques throughout his career.

India losing match, it isnt something new.

@ Invinci: Can't agree with you more.I hope they continue to criticse Tendulkar more and Tendulkar in return hits more centuries.
@ Rohan: Hey Rohan nice to see you after a long time. :-) :-)
