Article Comment Agree with Rahul and Robert,
When Sachin played that slow knock , on a good batting track where a score of 300 is considered only to be on par, Sachin's innings perhaps cost us the game. He took almost 25 overs , half of the innings, for 114. The rest of the Indian team that got a chance to bat put together 165 in 25 overs !!!!!. If they had got the chance to play more overs , perhaps we could have won the match !
Unfortunately we Indians tend to be short sighted ! We rejoice at personal records and didnt bother much when India went out of Asia cup.
Whenever Vivian Richards scored a century, West Indies never lost :)..
In Michael Holding's words 'Vivian Richards was the only batsmen I know who could have broken every possible batting record in the book, but he never played for records'.
Well compare that with our Indian players and see the contrast !

Article Comment Robert, I can't agree more. While watching the match, my first reaction was utter frustration at Tendulkar for not accelerating after 35 overs. He certainly bears some responsibility for India's loss.

Article Comment HERO WORSHIP AT ITS BEST
The so called "Champion" plays 147 balls (almost 25 overs or half of the innings) and scores 114 runs or 39% of the total of 289. In my head it was more an exercise to achieve individual milestone than to play for the country. For @ one run a ball Sachin in this case was 33 runs short. Look at it guys, this man became resonsible for India to Loose the match to minnows and now is at a state of even wondering whether it will come in the finals. Was sachin playing for the country or for an individual record? And think about it carefully, what matters most!
