Sachin Tendulkar’s excellent knock against pakistan watch and learn
Duration : 0:7:58
Sachin Tendulkar, the best batsman of modern era, batted brilliantly against pakistan in cricket world cup 2003 in south africa.
He hit Shoaib Akhtar for amazing six in that inning.
Sachin Tendulkar has been the most wholesome batsman of his time, and arguably the biggest cricket icon as well.
His batting is based on the purest principles: perfect balance, economy of movement, precision in stroke-making, and that intangible quality given only to geniuses, anticipation. If he doesn’t have a signature stroke – the upright, back-foot punch comes close – it is because he is equally proficient in each of the full range of orthodox shots (and plenty of improvised ones as well) and can pull them out at will.

Treat to watch this shot. What is more interesting is that Caddik challenged tendulkar about his skills against short pitch balls before the match. When India won a vital toss the following day, Tendulkar was in the mood. Curiously, he reserved his most punishing strokeplay for Caddick, who seemed put out that his comments had found their way back to the Indian dressing-room. One short ball was pulled for six; a good-length one pushed back on the up through mid-off for four. By the time Tendulkar was out for a 50-ball 52, he had scored 36 of his runs off Caddick – and from just 19 balls. India were off to a flier, and Caddick finished with his most expensive analysis in one-day internationals.
