Peter Roebuck pays homage to Tendulkar’s on-going 20-year career in this excellent article: 20 not out.
As much as the loss in the last game against Australia was disappointing, it was a supreme pleasure to watch Tendulkar’s 175. He’s on the wrong side of the equation as far as age is concerned, and won’t be at the crease for too long. Cherish his last few days, and try not to miss a game he’s playing in.
I am saddened just thinking of his impending retirement (which could very well be a couple of years away). Let’s hope he pulls a Jack Hobbs or Sanath Jayasuriya.
