  1. I don’t know where you get your information but I gave up reading after you described Sachin as ‘The Master Blaster’ – that’s Viv Richards – and suggest that Brian Lara is still playing.

    Sachin is ‘The Little Master’ and Brian retired almost 3 years ago.

    Perhaps you should cite your references also. It is the polite and correct thing to do and then you wouldn’t have to take the blame for the sloppy disinformation you present.

    Always cross reference when you don’t know what you are writing about.

    I also read the last line looking for your references and I can tell you with great certainty that Sachin is not the only player with 100 centuries. In fact there are dozens.

    Shocking!!!

    Wienmandu : What I tell about this is, perhaps the nick-names for the crickters are not so globally the same. Since, I am 100% sure that the South Asian Media and space calls Sachin Tendulkar as Master Blaster and Sunil M. Gavaskar as Little Master.
    I am surprised to know that Viv is also called a Master Blaster. Perhaps, in different era they are named such the same way to regard them.
    Another thing, I know that Brian is retired from Test and ODI. My text clearly says that he is retired.
