Meet Nitin Sachinist, the man who named him after Sachin Tendulkar

Hi everyone.. I am Nitin Sachinist. A devotee of the man popularly known as God of cricket ”SACHIN TENDULKAR”. My passion and love towards the legend and cricket started during childhood around at the age of 10 if I remember right. Since then I am his fan and as I grow old, of all my habits, the only thing that remains is the love towards him. Sometimes when I play cricket I try copying him but fail badly considering I am not even .0000001 close to the legend. Whenever I talk of Sachin Tendulkar I don’t know how to express

#Playingitmyway: The Sachin Tendulkar Autobiography Review

“This book all in all is pretty dry, but for some strange reason in the end it still made me cry”. It perhaps is my little way of being privy to the journey of the hero we have revered so much. The book in itself traverses his journey in finest detail. It starts with his childhood and ends at that speech he delivered at the Wankhede stadium in Mumbai last year. For most of us in our thirties and forties this book has very little to offer. There is a sense of Deja Vu, while reading this book in its entirety.

Statistically Also Sachin Is Far Ahead If Compared To Any Virat

Now that 200 has been breached thrice, all three times by an Indian batsmen, I have a simple question. Was Rohit Sharma’s 200 greeted with the same aplomb as Sachin’s? A definite answer is no. And that is why Sachin Tendulkar’s numbers, especially those which came pre 2003 make them so special that no newbie, no matter who he is, can come closer to the master class. Here are 5 reasons, simple ones why Sachin’s comparison to Virat Kohli is rank stupidity even if its done by the legendary Sunil Gavaskar. 1. Let’s start with this series since it’s a

Happy Bday Jonty
Cricket Featured Legends Sports Top

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

Jonathan Neil “Jonty” Rhodes (born 27 July 1969) is possibly the best fielder in the history of cricket. He as we all know played for the South African cricket team between 1992 and 2003. In cricket good, rather brilliant fielding is synonymous with Jonty. He is probably the only cricketer who is not remembered for his batting or bowling but for his fielding which is still possibly considered a secondary skill as compared to the other two. True to his reputation, on 14 November 1993, he created a world record in fielding which has stood unabashed for the last 20

Playing it my way – Review: The book could had been much more

Yes the review is very late, but that is mostly because I didn’t actually read the book. I heard the audiobook, which was released recently. Now Sachin Tendulkar has probably been the best batsman to have ever played the game. It had been my utmost pleasure to follow his game very closely, and more or less his public life had been an open book by virtue of being on the field of cricket or in the limelight for most of his life. So I wasn’t expecting much from the book since I had read some reviews, but I simply couldn’t

Cricket in 2014, the highs, the lows and the number 63

It will be an understatement to suggest that 2014 has been an eventful year for the game of cricket. The sport has seen some dramatic events at its administrative level that has had some lauding it, while others gasping at the turn of events. Off the field, controversies, fall from grace, a tell all saga, everything has ensued. On the field has been no less dramatic. Certain teams creating history, some becoming one. It has all happened in a space of twelve months. Here are the five stories that defined cricket for me in 2014. (5) David v/s Goliath: A
