I Love Sachin Tendulkar

MS Dhoni who is the only Indian captain

The Board of Control for Cricket in India has made the announcement that no Indian player in future will put no. 10 on the back of his jersey as that no. was reserved for the Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar only.

In the ODI series between India and Sri Lanka a few months back, a young Indian fast bowler Shardul Thakur had worn the jersey with no. 10 on its back and that didn’t amuse Sachin fans one bit. They showed their anger on social media and slammed BCCI for allowing a player to use that particular number on the back of his jersey.

Sachin Tendulkar Movie Hit Cinemas

Sachin Tendulkar through his movie which hit the big screen recently in India has revealed that he would probably have said goodbye to Cricket a few years before than he actually did if it had not been for a special phone call which he received and which changed his mind.

After Tendulkar saw the rough reactions of the public in the aftermath of India’s elimination from the opening round of the ODI World Cup in 2007, he was deeply hurt and he was seriously starting to think if he should hang his kit, but, then he got a call from West Indies and the person on the other side was someone Sachin had idolized all through his childhood and teenage. It was the Caribbean great Sir Vivian Richards. (more…)


Indian cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar broke records when he was active on the field and he seems ready to continue post retirement in the other phases he delved into.

The retired star often regarded as one of the greatest batsmen in the history of the game delved into music. He just released a song title “cricket Wali Beat” and it is expected to go viral in cricket-crazed India.

The 43-year old joined up with top Indian star Sonu Nigam for the hit. The song, which he dedicated to cricketers he has played with in past tournaments, has already garnered two million views on Youtube.

Tendulkar is the only player to score 100 international centuries during his time. He is also the first to hit double centuries in ODI and the only person to hit more than 30,000 runs in the international scene. He led India to the World Cup title in 2011 after making his debut at 16. (more…)

Ranchi Test was a Bad Day for India

It was a pretty bad first day of the test match for India in Ranchi.

They conceded close to 300 runs without taking too many wickets of the Aussies and their skipper Virat Kohli hurt himself badly too while making a fielding effort close to the boundary ropes.

Virat tried to slide, but, it went wrong and the way he fell, it looked very, very ugly. He held his shoulder with one of his hands and was seen grimacing for several minutes before the team doctor ran in to provide him some first aid.

Virat is someone who would never agree to leave the ground if the pain is manageable. In fact, he endures even more than manageable pain. His fans wouldn’t have forgotten him batting with a split finger in the last year’s IPL.

So, for a lad like that to come off the ground straightaway after the blow, the Indian fans probably feared the worst at that time itself.

If he had gone out just for an ice-pack, he should have returned after half an hour or maximum an hour, but, that didn’t happen. He didn’t return and that led to various kinds of speculations with some even doubting that it might be the dislocation of the shoulder. (more…)


Following the retirement of cricketing icon and legend, Sachin Tendulkar, Indian cricket fans have been in the lookout for a cricketer who could fill in the giant vacuum left by Sachin.

And from the look of things, it seems the wait is finally over, as ViratKohli looks like the man to take over the mantle from Tendulkar.

The year 2016 has been quite a very favorable year for Kohli as he has gone on to break a lot of records to the extent the BCCI coined a new phrase for it; ‘Kholified’.

The fourth day of the five test match being played in Mumbai at the Wankhede Stadium against England, saw the Indian Test Captain score a career-best of 235.

He also went on to score his third double century this year, as JayantYadav went on to complement his score with a maiden hundred, thus pushing India further up to pile up a mammoth 631, thus holding a massive lead of 231 runs over their touring opponents. (more…)

Coaching Professionals to be Hired from Outside India by BCCI

It seems not a lot of coaching professionals outside of India are willing to be hired by the BCCI as the advertisement released by the Cricket board for the post of the head coach has not drawn much interest from overseas.

The India coaching job is one of the most lucrative jobs in world Cricket and thus, a number of top coaches from around the world were believed to put their names forward for that, but, so far, only a couple of applications have come from the foreigners.

The coaches are now increasingly getting hesitant in associating themselves with any of the international teams because of the devotion of time it requires. They would rather take up the opportunities coming from the franchises of the twenty 20 leagues as that sort of job would keep them away from home only for a period of 6 to 8 weeks.

People like Tom Moody and Gary Kirsten who have had immense success coaching at the international level with Sri Lanka and India are now involved only in the leagues.

While, Kirsten was the head coach of the Delhi Daredevils in the 2014 and the 2015 Season, Moody has been in the same capacity at the Hyderabad franchise for the past three years.
