How this man was Great`er than these
"Great wall of India" & "God of Indian cricket";

That wall took full 35 matches to score his ton, while
the man played only 34 matches,
with a not out "Double" ton to his credit


How many matches did this "God" take to score his Double ton?
( I think. his friend scored 2 successive doubles, in 1993 itself!)

It's not just in cricket.. In Tennis too

At 26 yrs, that blonde angel Bjorn had;

102 career titles,
with a standing "Record" on 2 different surfaces of Tennis..

This fellaw Roger is nowhere near 100 title, or for that reason holding a "record" on 2 surfaces, at such a young age

They were products of venkatachalapathy..
& not some pedestaled fellow of Bangalore

So, get your statistics right,
before "conferring".......

I shut my right eye and imagined how it would be to face even a slow full toss... I stopped imagining. and Pataudi sir scored more than 2700 test runs against teams like England, WI and AUs and also captained! True HERO!

Batting with one eye against Wesley Hall and Charlie Griffith who are suppose to be the fastest bowlers ever played in cricket shows how gritty and fine cricketer he was.

with one eye open you can very well concentrate, when used to. In Arching and shooting too it is practiced.

Then you are throwing something at someone else. Imagine someone shooting an arrow or a bullet at you, and you have one eye to see it coming and decide what to do.

Great loss to cricket!
by m j on Sep 23, 2011 11:53 AM

In an era where tigers are becoming extinct, Indian Cricket has lost a Tiger... Tiger who is irreplaceable...
He was in all sense a Tiger... a Great man! May his soul rest in peace...
We all love you Tiger and we will definitely miss you!
