Cricket is simply a wonderful game, exported by the British around the world in the time of Empire. It is called boring by those who do not undertsand it. It can be all action but also a game of strategy and tactics.
Tendulkar is probably the best known cricketer in the world and a true mega star in India, where he has millions of adoring fans. To put his career into context, I watched an international in 1990 between England and India at Manchester and Tendulkar was playing as a 16 year old, 21 years ago.
