We are talking about Sachin Tendulkar’s recent dismisslas in 90’s. There has been a lot of talk in the media recently. Here are some excerpts:
The Hindu: (Friday)
“Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar was dismissed in the 90’s for the sixth time in ODI’s this year, ………..”
Sachin Tendulkar: victim of his own achievements
………”Hundred No. 41 came in January this year, followed by six missed chances. Numbers and statistics can be cold-blooded.”………
Sachin Tendulkar’s tale of missed centuries
……..”The 42nd century is turning out to be jinxed for Tendulkar who has fallen in the ‘nervous 90s’ for six times this year (19 matches), and second time in the ongoing series. He fell short by just one run on three occasions”……
……..”But of late, the century has eluded him, and the last time he crossed the three-figure mark was against the West Indies in January this year at Vadodara.”………..
From Indiatimes Cricket: (again)
Tendulkar falls to Nervous Nineties again
Some guy on “Headlines Today” seemed to think and was wondering aloud on TV “I think Sachin has forgotten how to make centuries”
Enough said. To all of Tendulkar’s detractors I want to say, go get a job LOSERS!! Most these buggers commenting on “nervous nineties” can’t hold the stick for heavens sake. They just pretend they know cricket. Think they can sit in the studio and pass remarks. Typical of Indian News Channels. Everyone seems to think of themselves as experts. Hell, Mandira Bedi thinks she knows cricket!!
I think The Hindu probably respecte Sachin for what he is. I am extremely critical of HT though!! Dorks, they just talk whatever comes to mind. Did they even do journalism ? All wannabe hosts!! When Sachin makes a century they ask ” Don’t you think Sachin is playing for records and its time for him to let the juniors play ?”. When he misses out, they say “He is in nervous nineties”. When he sometimes doesn’t play well, they are braying for blood. Losers go get a life!! or better still go find out what SRK doesn in his bathroom. That’s news to you anyway!!
Sachin Playing great:
The 100 is just a figure. I don’t think theres any signifcance to it. After all it’s only 1 run more than 99. We Indians are over-obsessed with milestones and records!! As long as Sachin bats the way he is batting right now, I dont think you can ask for anything more really. I was never a fan of Sachin, but I respect him. He is definitely a great batsman. Try facing a couple of deliveries on a cricket pitch with a Stitch ball and you will know why. Most people can’t even make contact with the ball!!
Moral of the story: TV reporters are jobless and sensationalize every darn story!! In the name of Media rights and keeping the mass informed, they are actually committing crimes!! Add one more crime to the list and may I suggest Suicide please ??
