Facts are facts! Sachin is the best Batsman of present era and equals Bradman and Viv Richards in my opinion in all time greats but it's also the fact that he averages 5 against Shoib Akhtar in tests and 20's in ODI and being dismissed by him in every 4th or 3rd game; So live with it. @some one who has replied to me; Agreed! the cartoons is not funny that's why my comment seems funnier. You have gotta have a good sense of humor though finding humor in such a bitter truth.

ashish514 has hit the nail on the head. One of the few sensible comments on here.

Reading this discussion, i smell something burning somewhere. Some comments are just hilarious like "it should be inverse because Sachin got out by Shoaib on 98". Dude you could have at least deleted "on 98" at the end. I admit Shoaib got better of Sachin a few times, but a few other times he has been taken to the cleaners by Sachin. So what we have seen is a good contest between these two.The context of this cartoon is the WC2003 match where clearly Sachin had the upper hand (except if you are the person whom i quoted above) @Asadullah Qureshi- I know legs shaking and all, as Mr. Doom Doom will want you to believe??

As Counter Strike Correctly pointed out ,the interview of Wasim is also considered by the cartoonist and Wasim was asked why he did not continued bowling Akhtar who was the strike bowler at Wasim said after the first over shoib was scared and was not willing to bowl and because of that the older guys like himself and Waqaur had to continue.

he made 22 against him that day and little tendulkar got bowled by akhtar atleast 8-10 times the cartoonist needs to grow up he always produce something positive to india

why would he be scared of the ice cream if that helped Sachin? it should help him too right?

sorry Satish, cant find anything remotely funny about this cartoon as Akhtar retired about 2 yrs ago and the incident is around 10 yrs ago

One of the comment from a reader is "But why are all your cartoons supporting only India?"; are you serious? I have been following Satish's cartoon from when he started. This statement can not be more wrong. Satish is always fair with his cartoon and he doesn't leave anybody either he is Indian or Australian.

Good job Satish. Another good one from you. :)
