Sachin Tendulkar – nervous in the nineties?

99 and... nadsNo-one in the history of cricket – NO-ONE – has scored more international hundreds than Sachin Tendulkar. 78 times he’s got into three figures. 78! That’s loads! So why in the name of all that is good and pure is he suddenly getting out in the nineties all time?

In his last 18 one-day international innings, Sachin has been out in the nineties no fewer than five times. Three of those occasions he has been stranded on 99. Now there are precisely 99 scores that are worse than 99 (think before you comment), but the following run’s quite an important one.

Clearly he’s past it.

(We never get rage-fuelled, badly-spelt comments any more.)

  1. 99 scores less than 99. Ahahaha. I see what you’ve done there, Kingcricket.

    If you want rage-fuelled, badly-spelt comments, you should resurrect the post about Lasith Malinga’s bowling action.

  2. “think before you comment” – you know us all too well, KC.

    Thanks Suave. That was very thoughtful, but it’s just not the same.

    It’s no “eat your own spit“.

  5. Mahinda – or do one about Murali’s action.

    Though speaking of Malinga, I predict that he’ll play in the second test and take his maiden test ten-for. You heard it here first.

  6. I’ll make sure I do better next time!

    Why are you no longer Blue & Brown?

    Trying to live up to the King Cricket name? To crush the will of your citizens, so that Colly & the boys don’t come-a-choppin?

  7. Yeah Suave you ask him. I’ve been trying to get an answer to that question for ages….

    and if you want badly spelt. I’m your man.

    Whenever another website links to us, they always refer to us as ‘King Cricket’. We just thought we’d go with it to try and minimise confusion.

  10. Suave, I can’t believe you went to the trouble of setting up a whole blog page, just for that gag. I also can’t believe that I clicked on it.

  11. One does, what one can!

    I’m not planning a military junta or anything, just had five minutes spare, and thought… well you know..

    To have one’s leaders performing at the top of their game, then they need to be kept alert, and ready to all challenges..

    Blue & Brown, has performed remarkably well over the last few days, so it’s obviously working!

  12. But OMG he’s only gone and taken away the CAPTIONS!

  13. Oh no – panic over – they’re back. Maybe my computer broke for a minute. Back to your lives people.

  14. Who, where, when?!

    Miriam, what are you talking about?

  15. Sorry, panic over, I couldn’t see them for a few minutes and thought he’d removed them but they are back.

    Wow, that’s lucky, as I’d found some new friends!

  17. And Sachin’s done it again.
