also known as "The Little Master" by contemporaries and veterans alike and considered the best batsman
in the world showed yet again why he is considered the best
in the business.
In the ongoing series against South Africa he came in with India in dire straits at around 50 for the fall of 2 wickets and watched his captain, come and go at the other end. Unperturbed he played an innings worth remembering. Compiling a masterly 155 he tore the South African bowling attack apart.
The bowlers could just stand back and watch as deliveries that would have been played defensively by any other batsman disappeared to all parts of the ground.
In the process he completed 7000 runs in test cricket. He already has 31 centuries in the one-day form of the game and now reached his 27th hundred in Test-cricket. He already has the most number of centuries in the history of the game.
Still 28 years old, the guy is still young and we hope to see more from this "God's gift to cricket". The man is simply a phenomeon.
