At Lahore, he Blossoms ...

This feels good, Oh Boy!

What feels good is the way the Sport Critics in India are made to eat their own words. What feels good is the way this "Aaj Tak" video has reduced to ashes.

Agreed, it was not a chanceless supremacy. Agreed, it was not a performance resting assurance in its early stages. But then whose performance assures anything?

In Lahore, bowling a full quota of 10 overs, giving away a modest 52 runs and claiming Inzy's wicket and then come out and score a superb 95 run knock is not easy. At least not as easy as removing 'T' from his last name and suggesting some non sense from the remaining, Endulkar.

It is far from over, folks. Actually, what the sport columnists are doing is a favor to him. Pushing him to limits. Making him determination more rock solid. Letting the guy play in its course.

He has scored an awe inspiring 237 runs at a thumping average of 79 when we have completed 3 out of the 5 ODI's. India leads the series 2-1. They should have the momentum going.

Now, I think these jobless people will attribute the entire blossom of his batting to the Naved-No-Ball that brushed Sachin's foot and rolled on to the wickets, when he was at 20 in the first ODI.

39 ODI centuries and more than 14,000 runs.
35 Test centuries and more than 10,000 runs.

Doesn't the guy deserve to be left alone?

All mighty, give me the sanity not to expect anything. I am satisfied!
