Tendulkar’s classic, a lesson for all batsmen

A few days before the World Cup began, Sachin Tendulkar asked an interviewer, at a function to release a CD of his father Ramesh Tendulkar’s poems in Mumbai, if he had any questions for him on the tournament. Vaibhav Purandare writes.

Sachin Tendulkar has reason to wonder what's going on

There seems to be a huge gap in the quality of cricket that Sachin Tendulkar is playing in the 2011 World Cup, and many of his team-mates are. Vaibhav Purandare elaborates.


Sach a sense of calm, Afridi wants to disturb it

Sachin Tendulkar's presence at the crease is reassuring for his own team, and worrying for the opposition, so it’s natural that he should be the first target of the psychological warfare started by Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi ahead of the World Cup semi-final in Mohali. Vaibhav Purandare writes.

Gritty Tendulkar put team above himself

Cricket coaches across the world will, in future, show their pupils videos of Sachin Tendulkar to teach them the finer points of batting. They would make a serious mistake if they do not include, in the must-see package, his innings of 85 against Pakistan in the World Cup semi-final at Mohali. Vaibhav Purandare writes.
