Being a sporty person, I admit that yesterday's innings played by Tendulkar against the Proteas at Gwalior, was one worth watching innings of all time, no doubt about it and I also admit that records are meant to be broken, so this time its for Tendulkar next time it would be someone else! and I also admit that the great record by the great Saeed Anwar was broken by another great Sachin Tendulkar.
But last night when I was watching a Indian Cricket Channel (don't wanna mention channel's name) they were praising Tendulkar (I don't mind that anyways) but on the other hand overshadowing Saeed Anwar's brilliance! Thats where I object, because it was eminent that whenever Saeed Anwar scored Pakistan benefited and won the match, including the famous 194 inning against the same team in Madras almost 13 years ago. Secondly Saeed Anwar steadied the ship and played a chance-less inning. Thirdly it was a inning played on opposition's homeground, so opposition at that time had the home-advantage, in that scenario he played that inning, it should be praised in that manner too,
What I want is to praise Sachin Tendulkar for his brilliance but do not over-shadow the brilliance of Saeed Anwar because Sachin's most marvelous innings for India went in vein, including the 175 against the Aussies when they toured India, so record says for it self, this batsman literally played for personal milestone i.e. personal landmarks first than country... What a shame!
