Yes the man in question is none other than our very own Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar.He is just 10 days short of completing 20 years in international cricket and it’s incredible to see him play with the same passion that he had when he played his first game.

Team INDIA does it but is Dhoni the best Captain ever??

INDIA has created history in NZ by winning the series 1-0 and this being first series win after 41 long years and the only 13th series win overseas makes it even more cherishable.

Its sad that it could not be 2-0 thanks to the weather gods and debatable captaincy from Dhoni but as soon as the match was abandoned and the test drawn congratulatory messages started pouring in. India is perhaps the only country where the president congratulates the team for their victory .This was no World Cup but India being such a cricket crazy nation it is bound to happen. BCCI didn’t waste any time and they announced a cash reward of 15 lakhs to each member of the winning team. Click here for the final day pics
