Sachin's Swan Song
by Padmaja Iyengar - Paddy
Bookmark and Share
 

In his 200th Test Match, his very last,
Sachin as usual went on a great blast.
When he scored a majestic seventy four,
We were left asking as usual for more...
His records seem in permanent moulds cast.
 
This Swan proved again that he is no duck;
It was talent, dedication and not mere luck,
That scripted the seventy four of his Swan Song,
That will remain in public memory for very long.
Oh Sachin, my farewell tears for you run amuck...
