"I know you are tense. But you are never gonna be this tense ever again. So enjoy the moment."
These lines could've been right on top of the best one liners in hollywood movies. Sure as tomorrow's sunrise, the listener knew that he had heard the best advice he can ever get on a battlefield. The words did their magic and today the listener answers to the call of Virendar Sehwag. And the little big man who uttered those pearls, has just completed his 50th test ton. Of all the praises and paeans showered on him..this one by one of his several million fans, i feel, is the best.
"Commit all your crimes when Sachin is batting.They will go unnoticed because even the Lord is watching"
When he arched back and raised his bat to the heavens for the 50th time in 20 years of test cricket..it was almost as if in a silent plea to God..."when are you going to send in the showers". And God duly obliged..a tad late by which time Dhoni and Bhajji are already gone :(
Memo to GOD: If it rains tomorrow in SA and if the match gets drawn..i promise i wont eat ice cream for the next hmmm...till this year end. Please dont make this effort go in vain. Tragedies may suit the Greek. I am Indian and i want a happy ending.
