Description: NOTE: SOME SCRIBBLES ON THE BACK COVER BUT CONTENT IS IN GOOD FORM Sachin Tendulkar has made poets of prose writers even if his strokeplay has demontrated the futility of conveying in words the brilliance of his batsmanship.

From the sublime to the ridiculous it is all here. As Peter Roebuck once said "Whenever I feel low I only need to remind myself how privileged I am to be writing on the game in the Tendulkar era"
