At the outset let me make it clear that I am a Sachin Tendulkar fan. I have absolutely loved watching him play over the years and have admired him all my life. However, I do not consider him God. Neither, in my humble opinion, he has is the best player of our generation. It’s merely a personal opinion without a hidden agenda. But thanks to the above opinions, I’m considered a trenchant Tendulkar critic by his 'fans’ who bracket me alongside those who are perennially opposed to the maestro.
