The Wall is Back…


The past few days, my mail box is a mess with self generated spam from our very own friendly group of ‘like-minded’ people. The raging debate was not on our national language, we have left that to the television channels! It was who is better – “Sachin Tendulkar” or “Rahul Dravid”.

Me and a few other takers for the “pure cricket” still vote “Rahul Dravid” way above anyone. Others play for records, he plays for the team, is what we believe. May be to Raj Thackarays surprise lots of my non-Maharashtrian friends back Sachin! Let me be honest, I have always felt he plays for the records.

He has amassed so many records that it has left the likes of Rahul Dravid and Saurav Ganguly look nowhere inspite of them achieving much more than what he has or contribute more as a ‘team’ than the Mr Cricket of Indian cricket. (with due respects to Mr Mike Hussey, I flick off the Mr Cricket tag).

Today the Mr Perfect of Indian cricket has silenced his critics with a one day like knock of 177* in the first test of SriLanka, that too at a time when India were in shatters at 25-4! Where was Tendulkar, he got out at 4! Definitely Rahul earns a recall back to the ODI team and that too as a prominent player till the end of 2011 world cup. He has ‘more than’ what Tendulkar has left in him, to play for the Indian cricket. I am definitely sure that a mongrel 50+ innings in the next match or session from Tendulkar is going to light the fire in his fans, but beware ‘he is just playing for another record – THE MAXIMUM NUMBER of test 50’s!!! Haha – Hero of the Nation!!!! 🙂 Well, whatever you patrons of my blog think, I just hope Jammy completes his 200 tomorrow, not for any records, but hoping the Indian bowling attack has a decent score to defend.

    Dravid is given a raw deal by media, selectors, and also by our ‘like minded’ frnds… His achievements for india is second to none.
    Kudos to Dravid …for answering them all…
    @MC : Sachin count is more …gr8. …go nd publish it as a new record or inform our media

    there is no need for any debate of any sorts when it comes to the Great Wall of India which is way better than the cheap chinese one to the northeast of india LOL

    I do agree with you, I feel the wall very unfortunate when he was kept out of one day team even after a good knock recently. His class knock like 140 n 150 in the world cup was overshadowed by Sachin and Gangulys innings..
    I still believe, had Ganguly or Dravid been given chance like Sachin they are also capable of playing similar knock,
    but still I do not take anything out from Sachin.
