I remember once in a flight to England on way to Africa in KLM,i had a great chance to interact with this legend,he has an aura unmatched by any criceter,we talked for about half an hour on different issues not even knowing me.
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.

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.
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!
