Review on Sunshine days for Indian Cricket

The Indian Cricket is perhaps going through one of its best periods and this week has been especially special for the entire team as well as the choicest few, the real stalwarts of the Indian cricket team. The celebrations went underway on October 5, 2010 after team India lodged a historic win against the Australians in the first match of Border-Gavasakar test series. The one wicket win did not come easy and all kudos to VVS Laxman for inspiring the team to such a historic win.

By the fourth day of the match, India had to chase a score of 216 in order to win and before noon, it had already lost 8 wickets for a meager total of 128. Laxman and Ishant Sharma shared a partnership of 81 runs and literally all hopes were doomed when Ishant was given LBW out by the umpire. And the rest they say is history as following nail biting moments, VVS Laxman and Pragyan Ojha saw India to a glorious finish. With this win, Indian managed to maintain its number one ranking in international test cricket. The moment of great gloom was when master blaster Sachin Tendulkar was given out by the umpire when he was only two runs away from scoring another test century.

But the following day more than made up for the best cricketer in the Indian cricket history. At a glittering ceremony in Bangalore on October 6, 2010 Sachin Tendulkar was presented with his first ever International Cricket Council award, the ICC Cricketer of the Year. The award comes in recognition of his great performance in One Day International as well as test cricket throughout the year. earlier this year in February Sachin became the first and only cricketer in the history of one day cricket to score 200 runs in an inning. He holds the record for maximum number of one day centuries, test centuries, maximum runs in test cricket and maximum runs in one day cricket.

There is virtually no end to the number of records that are there in the name of Sachin and he was more than delighted to be presented with the first ICC trophy of his career. Other players, who were nominated for the Sir Garfield Sobers Trophy, as it is called, were Indian Test major Virendar Sehwag, the famous batsman from South Africa Hashim Amla and the English bowler Graeme Swann. But ultimately it was the ever talented and genius batsman from India who uplifted the trophy.

If one award was not enough, Sachin was also awarded the Peoples choice which was conducted through a poll and the cricketer with highest number of votes being polled in the favor of Sachin Tendulkar. Virendar Sehwag won the test cricketer of the year award. Indian cricket has finally come of age and at this juncture, the one dream that remains unfulfilled is that of holding yet another ICC World Cup.
