India vs West Indies test series is among the most thrilling series I hace watched in my life.I just switched on my television and was shocked to find that Indian batting order was struggling again !! They were playing at 44 with 4 wickets back in pavalion with Rahul Dravid among them.Only VVS Laxman,Suresh Raina and Harbhajan Singh were left to stand up a good score.VVS Laxman proved his experience and played with hard bat to score outstanding 85 and reaching aggregate of 8000 runs,after Sachin,Rahul and Sunil Gavaskar. He played like a matured batsman,hitting fours with so much ease that gave confidence to Suresh Raina,a young talented and ya ofcourse Poster Boy of Indian cricket team to help India reach a somehow good total of 201.VVS Laxman is now counted among very few batsmen in the world that can sting with the tail.He played marvelous innings with tail-enders,helping them to gain confidence and score for the country.This match ,I am sure would be stored among his classics.

In return after this shocking start from India,I expected the same situation for West Indies also (as happened in last test match which gave me  confidence to think beyond possibilities). Same thing happened with West Indies,as they were thrashed by furious bowling by Ishant sharma and Praveen Kumar.They bowled so beautifuly that created havoc in West Indies pavilion.West Indies batting order collapsed like cards and were helpless and ya,choked to fight against cruel Indian Bowlers.

At last,India was back in the match…with Indies losing their 5 wickets with 60 runs on board…and Men In Blue gave another hope of winning…

India thrashed Australia in second test, played at Banglore. With this, India have secured its first position in the ICC Test Ranking. Sachin Tendulkar played a key role to help India clinch the match as well as the series. Little Master played a marvelous innings of 214 to give fans another Diwali Gift, first being the first test match at Mohali.

Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar started playing for the nation at the mere age of 16. He debuted against Pakistan in 1989. Since then, Sachin refined his cricket with every match he played, hence to help the nation reach the top position in the world. Although with no cricket background,yet Tendiya with his talent and hard work ,proved to be counted among the all time greatest players of cricket.

He was recently considered as quite old enough to play anymore cricket, but, he still had the same passion as he had in 1989 and hence he proved all critics wrong by coming back in tremendous batting form and showing his captaincy skills in IPL while playing for Mumbai Indians.

He is currently the highest run scorer in the history of Test cricket with 14240* Test runs with career average  at 56.96. Moreover, he is the only batsman in the world who has touched the 200 mark in ODI cricket. The records list is never-ending for this Little Master. Recently he was awarded with Cricketer Of The Year By ICC yet another feather in his big hat.

Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar is a person who avoids talking with his mouth but uses his bat to talk for himself. Such legends are hence truly called “UNIVERSITY OF CRICKET”…

India Trounce Aussies

Sachin Tendulkar celebrates his century agains...

After a humiliating lose at Mohali , Aussies seemed to dominate the match from the begining ,giving India no space for playing. They struck a huge total of 478 with key player Marcus North who entranced audience with his brilliant knock of 128. Australian batsmen did their task but bowlers were struggling to stop Indian Spartans. Sachin Tendulkar fought back brilliantly giving Aussies another hint,why India is World Number One. Sachin not only completed his 14,000 runs but was also successful to record his 6th double hundred in test cricket.  His 214 runs not only helped India fight back the total but also inspired bowlers for better performance. Bowlers choked Australians to the mere total of 223 and hence achieving an easy target of 207. In reply, when  Virender Sehwag fell early , the match seemed to be similar to the final day in Mohali, where the wounded VVS Laxman took the command and directed India to dramatic win. But fortunately the case wasn’t the same, Murli Vijay and Chetechwar Pujara handled the hot Aussie bowlers and struck a brilliant knock of 37 and 72. Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid both played an impressive knock and helped India to an easy win. So, India have confirmed their status as World No. 1.
