The Great Little Master

It was inevitable.

And fitting too.

Probably the greatest batsman of this era, and without doubt one of the greatest of all time, finally achieved a milestone he truly deserved.

Sachin breaks the world record

In 152 matches Sachin has achieved 12027 runs, 39 centuries and hearts of millions of fans around the world. What more can you ask for?

And to be able to survive - not to mention thrive - for almost two decades carrying the weight of expectations of millions of cricket-crazy Indian who wouldn't think twice before burning their heroes' houses after a couple of failures is no mean feat. Yet he managed to survive and remained on top all this time.

That's class.

And toughness.

To add to that, being such a legend in the game, he still managed to be a humble person whom everyone seems to like. That, in my opinion is the greatest achievement of all.

Being congratulated by the Aussies...

Sachin may be gone in few years, and somebody might take his records, but the wonderful memories he leaves behind will remain forever...

Thank you Sachin, you truly have been a pleasure to watch!

Read Sanga's tribute here.


  1. Sanga really doing his best to get into Sachins good books :)

  2. LOL maybe he's hoping Sachin would write something like that for him one day.

  3. When I was younger, I loved watching Sachin bat more than any of the Sri Lankan batsmen. He was a kind of a hero for me...
    Awesome batsman..
