Expectations from Sachin keep on growing by the day
On Sachin Tendulkar's 37th birthday, Vijay Lokapally writes in the Hindu that the maestro is still learning and imparting.
Look at Tendulkar in the ongoing IPL. His influence on the team is unmistakable. That Mumbai Indians has preformed consistently points to his leadership. He has guided the young Saurabh Tiwary and the temperamental Harbhajan Singh with some astute handling. He has performed on the field and shepherded the lads well off it. No Mumbai Indians player can be spotted at the late night IPL parties.
