He has done India so proud for more than 19 years and still carries on. Most unselfish, dedicated, humble, less spoken individual and yet so poised, so focused and so determined. Bravo Sachin, way to go. Critics who truly are good for nothing other than putting blames should shut their mouths and think about what have they acheived in comparison to the little master. Jai Hind !!!
