Ah so that’s what a billion sighs of relief sound like.
Finally, pint sized cricket man god, Sachin Tendulkar, has hit his hundredth hundred. Blogs and newspapers are filling up with features that have sat on hard drives for 12 months like an obituary of a very old famous person, just waiting to have the proverbial dust blown off them.
It really did feel like he’d be stuck in the nervous 99.94’s in perpetuity, alongside Sir Don of Bradmania.
I know Sachin is a big fan and will be reading this, so congratulations. It’s a milestone that feels like it will never be matched.
