#Playingitmyway: The Sachin Tendulkar Autobiography Review

Statistically Also Sachin Is Far Ahead If Compared To Any Virat

Teach him that for every critic there is a friend. It will take time, I know; but teach him, if you can, that the respect earned the hard way is

Sledging – Cricket’s ‘not so soft’ skill

Cricket, deemed famously as a ‘Gentleman’s game’ has seen some drastic changes over the past 2-3 decades.

Is it a Bird? Is it a plane? No, Its Jonty.

Is Dhoni going the Napoleon Way?

When MS Dhoni burst on the international scene in 2004 to debut against Bangladesh, he was force of nature. He was young, raw, and uninhibited. His fearless stroke play made him darling of the nation and won applauds from the President of Pakistan. He was efficient behind stumps and was blessed with a no fear, no non-sense attitude. He didn’t speak much, and that helped. Much has changed since that day in December 2004. Dhoni’s
