“Beneath the helmet, under that unruly curly hair, inside the cranium, there is something we don't know, something beyond scientific measure.

Sachin Tendulkar has often reminded me of a veteran army colonel who has many medals on his chest to show how he has conquered bowlers all over the world. I was bowling to Sachin and he hit me for two fours in a row. One from point and the other in between point and gully. That was the last two balls of the over and the over after that we (SA) took a wicket and during the group meeting i told Jonty (Rhodes) to be alert and I know a way to pin Sachin. I delivered the first ball of my next over and it was a fuller length delivery outside off stump. I shouted catch. To my astonishment the ball was hit to the cover boundary. Such is the brilliance of Sachin. His reflex time is the best i have ever seen. It is like 1/20th of a sec. To get his wicket, better not prepare. At least you wont regret if he hits you for boundaries. Allan Donald
