Fiction 55 (3)

He felt defeated. He knew he had to save the day After all the efforts he had put in, all the pain he had suffered, these people didn’t give a damn. All his efforts wasted. He was fully exhausted. But He has to go on and do his duty. After all he is Sachin Tendulkar!

This struck me when India lost the match inspite Sachin scoring 175 runs. This shows that the team expects him to stick it out till the end if he wants to take credit for Man of the Match. Also I wont miss the chance of smirking at the 80000 FANS who bought Tickets for the game at to be held at Vashi considering the fact that Australia KO'd us and clinched the series.
Reminds me of a conversation...

Mr. Confident : Dude you want tickets for the game at vashi? I got kool passes from my company.
Me : Lets see if India stays in the series. I'l decide after that.
Mr. C : C'mon man... We gonna win. And the Vashi one too! (So much for Optimism)
Me : Dude I'l tell you later. I'll have to arrange the cash too... For the tickets.
Mr. C : You better do it fast. The tickets have been sold out on the first day itself! (Achievement?)
Me : I'll let you know as soon as possible.

After the Ill Fated Match
Mr. C : Dude Wats up?
Me : Roflol
Mr. C : Very Funny
Me : lol lol lol lol
Mr. C : The bright side is that you need not arrange the cash. Coz we're getting them free!
Me : loling so much that *CLICK*

lol.. the conversation between you and mr. confident is very funny. Enjoyed it. :D
But dude, you shouldn't have reminded about that match. It's really heart-breaking.
55 fiction was nice, by the way. A totally different one.

@ All Above
You keep expectations and then you get hurt! Never feel sad for cricket. I've stopped doin it since a while now and i find myself a happy, contented human being!

M Glad that you guyz liked the fiction 55. I guess I'm kinda getting a grip on it.

And to add fuel to the fire, the match was abandoned due to the rains! roflol!

My good friend Mini tells me that the match was at Nerul and not at Vashi.

I apologize to all people devastated by the above error!

Agree with you on the statement abt 'Sachin Tendulkar'.. He plays and the other 10 are liabilities.. Everyone expects a superhuman knock from him, everytime he walks in without understanding that he's just 'An ordinary-person-par-excellence'!

and nice conversation you've put up! Keep writing!
