What can I do for you Mr.Jayawardene?

Sachin Tendulkar might not recognise Lionel Cann. Should he wish to hit in the air in the league game against Bermuda on April 19 at Port of Spain, he'll be well served if he acquaints himself with Cann's clock.

"I can honestly say that we have a player called Lionel Cann," says Bermuda skipper Irving Romaine. "He loves India. He has named his child India. His biggest player is actually Tendulkar. Right now I'm hoping Tendulkar does not hit a catch to him because he will probably drop it to watch him bat."

This piece was in The Hindu a few days back. What Irving Romaine hasn't said here is that big Leverock has the same soft corner for Mahela Jayawardene that Cann has for Sachin. He has dropped Jayawardene twice already (Mahela was on nought the first time) today. Mahela is currently batting on 84 and there are about 9 more overs to go. A hundred is there for his taking - whether he reaches there or not, Mahela is right back in form (thanks to Leverock). Mahela hadn't scored a 50 in the last 19 games and this knock should do his confidence a world of good.

Update: Mahela just got out for 85 - caught brilliantly in the deep by Kevin Hurdle; if only Leverock was stationed there..

Sachin Tendulkar good for nothing, scored all his centruries and runs resulti9ng in no cup win for India, or no series win for India, only a fair weather batsman. When required to shoulder the responsibility and score and take India to victory, invariably failed, making face of a sheep to sluaghter. In last 15 years his averages for finals and semis are so dismal that he should be dropped from all finals and semis. As long as such persona as Sachin are around in Indian team forget the world cup, perhaps Sachin can do well to shoe shine Jaysurya's boots. Totally humbug, over rated. How many test series has India won with the BEST BATSMAN IN THE WORLD purpordedly with India, during the last 15 years. HUMBUG.

Ponting scores a century and Australia wins. Gavaskar scored a century after 20 mandatory overs were bowled and the Pakis had left the field, but Gavaskar was adamant that he wanted to complete his century. What is the use of such century ? HUMBUG totally.

Tendulkar abhi Retirekar. You have cheated India a lot.
