Like lot other cricket fans in India, Sachin was one of the primary reasons for my early interest in cricket. Thinking about his marvel today, i just remember how i made made my family to sit in front of the TV to watch the 1996 world cup in spite of their little knowledge of the game.

His gesture after the double ton, reminded me of the days i used to wake up in front of a huge poster with Sachin looking up the sky with his bat on one hand and the helmet on the other; his acknowledgement after almost every century.

Every time when Sachin scores a quick hundred, i used to wish if he can score at the same pace and convert it to a double century, and today was no exception.

I may be wishing for the same even the next time i guess.
