Reigning 20 years and Raining records
When I was studying 3rd grade, he made his debut in international cricket and today after 20 years during which i have completed my 12 years of schooling, 5 years of my graduations and working for the last 5 years, he is still doing the same what he was doing then, ruling his game, Cricket.
Since he started playing cricket
- India has seen 7 new Prime ministers.
- US $ value has gone up to Rs.46 from Rs.17.
- 107 players have made their debuts in ODIs for India.
- 76 players have made their debuts in Test cricket for India.
- 2 generations has grown old watching him play.
but he still remains there and remains as big as he ever was, dances down the pitch and slams the ball straight behind the bowler for a six. He was a nightmare to the bowlers in the early years of his career and today he still remains a worst nightmare not only to the bowlers but to the captains as well.On the field he shows no respect to the bowlers what-so-ever but off the field, the humility that he shows is a lesson to every human being.
I wonder,could there be a person in this planet who could achieve as much as this man has done in 2 decades. He leaves no field unconquered. 20 Years is a imperative time for any individual human being. In the last 20 years this is what this super human has achieved.
