Many have come forward with praise for Sachin Tendulkar after the 'Little Master' retires from the game after playing 200 tests in a record breaking 24-year career.
All the pacemen ask for in India is just a hint of movement to give them hope.
Sachin Tendulkar is the greatest cricketing icon of all time. If he stood for the Presidency of India, the elections would be a pointless exercise.
No one can have a true understanding of the impact that Sachin Tendulkar has had on the Indian nation except by having sat, at some time during these past two decades, in the stands of an Indian cricket ground during a match involving the national team.
A full house at Lord's, a good pitch, sunny with light cloud, 35 minutes before lunch, the time had come for the man with 99 international centuries to grace the arena: Sachin Tendulkar emerged to a standing ovation.
