Playing one of the greatest innings ever seen in the One Day game, after a career of 20 years.
Still keeping a cool head in a nerve wrecking situation, and never letting the others crumble.
To keep going even after scoring half of the 350 runs single handedly, showing no signs of fatigue or aging.
Summoning the strength that was a characteristic a decade ago.
Playing such a balanced innings that no critic can ever point out a weakness.
Standing tall in a team of mortals.
To take one man’s lone heroic efforts in an otherwise ordinary display of talent and total lack of a cricketing brain, and flush them down the drain. Shamelessly.
