Emulating Sachin - a family thing..

This article in Express India throws some insight on the inspirational short film that A Prasanna (Team India under-19 computer analyst) uses to motivate his teenaged wards. The movie is a juxtaposed collection of video clips of international cricket stars in action and the clips of the youngsters in the team who are trying to emulate them with music from hit numbers as the background score.

Some of the comparisons: Piyush Chawla with Shane Warne, Left-handed batsman Ravikant Shukla with Lara; hardhitting batsman Mayank Tehlan with Sachin, all-rounder and sixer sepcialist Gaurav Dhiman with Andrew Flintoff. But swing bowler Abu Nechim Ahmed has the person toughest to emulate: coach Venkatesh Prasad. And phsyio Muthu too isn’t left out as his visuals are merged with that of John Gloster.

Noticed who is being compared to Sachin? That would be Delhi's young Mayank Tehlan. He made his Ranji debut this season and scored a scintillating 176 on debut against Maharashtra. But the interesting thing about this kid is that he hails from Najafgarh and is Virender Sehwag's cousin. Now that does explain why he is being compared to Sachin, doesn't it? - it is a family thing.
