Tendulkar isn't thumping it
Spot of the day: Sachin Tendulkar has a strike-rate of 155.75 after four matches this season despite not having hit a single six. He’s hit plenty of fours though – 28 in his aggregate of 176 – piercing fields with surgical precision using wristy flicks, delicate cuts and steers, and orthodox drives. In the process, he’s showed everyone that you don’t have to thump it in Twenty20.
