Just one out of many

My favorite moment from last night's incredible finish to the Chennai test: Tendulkar politely shaking hands with all the members of the groundstaff that ran on to congratulate him after the winning runs. At that moment, it all came together. The win, the essential simplicity of this great player, the role of cricket in India, and the relationship between the greats we create and our dreams.

Yes, I thought that was great too.
In fact it almost brought tears to this Englishman's eyes.
