The Greatest Innings Ever
The World Cup is over (there’s only one that matters). And now that the greatest cricketing nation on the planet finally has the crown it so richly deserves, some mention the fact that Tendulkar is still on 99 international centuries as something of a disappointment. Considering Tendulkar’s recent form and the fact that he’s not thinking about quitting anytime soon, it is certain that he will reach the century of centuries. So I am happy that he hasn’t reached that milestone yet because, if anything, it is reassurance that there is still more to come of the Little Master. To a cricket-mad nation, winning the World Cup means everything – but seeing Tendulkar play means even more. And what greater solace than to know that the most glorious innings of them all is still in progress – at 99 not out.
