It’s a day which won't be forgotten. At least not by people like myself, who grew up in the nineties when Indian cricket team was nothing more than a single name that reverberated with the heart beat of every Indian.
In the nineteen nineties, when me and my friends in India were beginning to come in terms with a sport named 'Cricket', Indian cricket was witnessing the emergence of a youngster who would eventually become the soul of the country. It is hard to imagine any kid growing up in India in the nineties and not registering the ‘Hero Cup’ semifinal last over or the famous India versus Australia matches at Sharjah in his memorabilia.
Those were different times. It was a one man show back then.
