  • Chris Gayle, the man with a whopping 14,000 runs in International Cricket, made up of no less than thirty-three colossal centuries, and a career spanning over a decade, may soon cease to be a West Indian Batsman. That's a terrible thing to happen to any batsmen worth his salt, for representing the country is by far the biggest honour that one can take pride in.

    Tendulkar has drunk from the elixir of youth and ageless is perhaps the best way to describe his art and craft. It really is quite incredible that after all these years he is
    still able to retain his keenness for the game. This boyish enthusiasm is clearly the main reason behind his success and longevity. He is still able to hold his own in the field
    despite being surrounded by much younger teammates and as far as his
