Actor-writer Tom Alter, who has watched Sachin Tendulkar closely since his schooldays, “I am not angry; I am in pain” watching the great man’s batting at Bangalore.
“Pain of having watched Tendulkar play one of the most pathetic Test innings of his amazing, amazing career,” Alter wrote in First Post. “Four runs from 41 balls at lunch – beaten at least four times – scratchy, tentative – even Gavaskar admitted he was tentative.”
Alter goes on to add, “The bat refusing to come down straight – always curving towards the leg, which is why he is beaten so often now by balls that move in – -and then bowled – cleaned-up – by a ball that moved in. I am not angry – I am in pain.”
