Master Batsman Sachin’s Simplicity

November 7, 2009 Leave a comment


Relaxing in his hotel room in Guwahati not quite 24 hours after he single-handedly held the cricketing world in thrall, Sachin Tendulkar was excited and thoughtful by turn as he chatted about cricket and life.

But if his knock caught his detractors on the wrong foot, the man himself — all of 36 and an incredible 20 years into the international game — said he was not surprised at knocking off 175 runs in 141 balls and running the Australians ragged in the process.

“To be honest, I always knew I could do it,” Tendulkar told HT from Guwahati. And no, racking up 75 runs in singles, twos and threes did not tire him.

On the contrary, he thinks that has been his strength. “Many of the hundreds I scored, there was a lot of running involved,” he said. I still do my regular routine (at the nets)… You do a lot of running. I always focus more on that aspect of the game. I feel if I could run well between the wickets, most of the other things would be taken care of.”

And by his own reckoning, he has many more left in him.

Tendulkar has no plans to retire, not now, not anytime soon. He said the thought of giving up cricket had not even crossed his mind. “Not at this stage. I am enjoying my game and there is cricket left in me. At this stage I’m not thinking of it at all. At some stage one will have to, but I don’t need to think about that right now. I’m just saying that when the situation arises, it’ll then be appropriate to think about it. Right now, that’s not something I want to do.”

              Yamaha and Suzuki have had more exposure than any other bike company in India because of the launch of FZ16 and R15 from Yamaha and GS150R from Suzuki. But Hero Honda and Honda are busy stickering up their bikes. New CBZ Xtreme, New Passion Pro are both just sticker upgrades and has no change in the engine or performance, which seems to be quite lame. And many Indian bikers got disappointed with the launch of Honda Unicorn Grand Prix edition, another sticker work, which is not so good looking and gives an idea that Honda is just trying to catch up in the two-wheeler market.

Will Honda susprise us in 2009? I am also a fan of Honda cars and I feel that Honda is not intimidated by the bike launches from Yamaha and Suzuki. The people at Hondas may have something bigger in store for us and are waiting for the right time, I guess. Now, Introduce yourself to Honda CBR 150R!

                     The CBR series of bikes from Honda is more than just a famous brand name. Now with the launch of Yamaha R15, India is in need for competing sports bikes with latest technology. This may lead to Honda bringing the CBR 150R to India. This bike is far more technologically advanced than the R15 and is a real sports bike, not a sporty looking bike! Anyway this is not a news, but just a speculation. Stay tuned for more bike news.
