He's 35 years old and owns practically every batting record in the game, but you couldn't escape the feeling that this was probably Sachin Tendulkar's finest hour when he scored the winning runs in the fourth highest run chase in history. Whats your views?

Yes, he have played a superb knock in this test match. I don't think without that Tendulkar-yuvraj partnership (where Tendulkar played a crucial role), India could have achieved that huge total. Tendulkar has done so much for Indian cricket for the past 2 decades and obviously he has filled almost every records in the books when it comes to batting. I think he has dominated in both test match as well as one day match for 20 years and this innings is a really one of the special innings he played against England.

Even sachin agrees thatthis is probably his finest innings. I watched the entire innings & sure enough his concentration was impeccable. Having seen him perish in 30 & 80 in the recent past , i was sure that he will loose his concentration at some time & gift away his wicket. But this time his desire was unquestionable. The innings was a treat to the eye. Every shot he played had silken touch. It was a great innings of modern times.

Yes, afterall Sachin is a magician. Isn't he? This big knock was on the cards for him. He was missing century after century. But the important thing about this Test was that, he not only scored a century, but also was instrumental in yes another win. This was the Mater's 41st century and came at a good time. At the post match conference, Sachin seemed quite relived. And why shouldn't he? He had shown the world again, what he is made of. And he has proved once again, that the retirement issue should not be spoken of at least for another 2-3 years. Anyways, India has been proud again to have won such a great match coming from behind.
