Namely, score a one-day international hundred in Australia.
Rohit Sharma may have played a major part, but he merely provided able and precocious support to the main man. It might be about the fifth time we’ve written this, but it doesn’t get any less true: Sachin Tendulkar is THE BALLS.
You don’t get any leeway once you’re over 30. If you’re coming back from an injury or in a patch of poor form then you’ve ‘had it’ – your eyes are going, the hunger’s gone, the body’s letting you down.
Clearly absolute testicles. Sachin Tendulkar has averaged 62.73 in 22 Test matches since the start of 2007, hitting four hundreds. In the same period in one-day internationals, he’s averaged 45.60.
If Sachin Tendulkar’s had it, then the moon’s a giant gonad. (Three separate references to testicles – a new career best.)
