Tendulkar retires from one day cricket (should have been international cricket imo). One of the greatest to ever play, arguably GOAT with the bat, he is in my mind at least. Was a joy to watch in his prime and his strokeplay was just so elegant yet effective. What was impressive was how he continued to adapt his game in the later years to continue to put up bog numbers. He did it all true legend, be a privilege to grow up watching him. Time for india to find some new talent.

So, interesting development. I might be facing off against Trent Boult tomorrow.

Good Times.

Why I said arguably. Still he takes the title for me. Granted its a generational thing but he has earned it.

You mean playing with more body protection? Protection from umpires? Better pitches? Unbelievably superior quality bats? And then averaging 30 runs less is more impressive?

Tendulkar is #2. But Bradman is the unquestionable GOAT.

Gloucestershire are my adopted team for County cricket seeing as Cheshire don't have a professional team. Glos finished bottom of Division Two last year, the only way is up! Good start today too.
