    Tendulkar's Opus

    In extracts from a book to be released next year, Sachin Tendulkar speaks about his childhood and playing for India.
    When I was a child, somehow I always knew I would play cricket for my country. There was never even 0.1% of doubt. No doubt at all.
    His is a fascinating story, progressing from prodigy to super star to the world's best batsman to owning the cricket world's most talked about elbow & shoulder and along the way, filling up reams of paper (and bytes) about his batting.

    While Rahul Dravid will always remain my favourite, after Gavaskar & Viv, I must admit that there've been several when I've seen Sachin Tendulkar bat and my first reaction has been "How on earth did he hit that?! That ball wasn't meant to be hit that way!"

    Some others who've evoked awe in me with their ability to conjure up genius from nowhere: Azharuddin, Botham, deSilva, Gilchrist, Lara, Marshall, Murali, Rhodes, Warne, Wasim & Waugh (Mark, please!)

    Couldn't find anywhere more details on the book..esp the author. Surely not an autobiography! It would have created a media storm by now, had that beent he case :-)

    And somehow, I would be extremely surprised if Sachin gives such a grand (sounding) name to his autobiography (if and when he pens one)

    No, it isn't an autobiography. There's no way Tendulkar will come out with an autobiography at this stage of his career, unlike some others that we've seen since the Ashes.

    Further, I fully predict his autobiography to be titled something as sensational as "My story - Sachin Tendulkar".
