Sachin was in absolute control in compiling his maiden one day hundred in Australia, answer enough (his 42nd crossing of the point) to their eventually unsufficient total. Well, almost. In his 90s his groin problem resurfaced and millions of hearts skipped a beat. On 98 he almost ran himself out. But by that time he was once again running normally. At least on the face of it. Its this ability of Tendular - of pushing himself and always wanting to be in cotrol - that makes him worthy of reverence. Calm, composed, creative.
