History repeats itself.
Of course, in Sachin Tendulkar’s case, no one will be able to repeat his feat of 200 Tests given the dying, flickering flame of Test cricket.
But before the final lights go out, the Indian batting stalwart’s last domestic game for Mumbai – counting down among his lasts goodbyes of all kind – against Haryana in the Ranji Trophy has turned out to be a mini-reel of his real-life predicament.
All eyes peering down his back again, it is Tendulkar who stands between victory and defeat with seemingly short on partners in what has set for a cracking final day.
Of course, the pressure cannot be compared to an international game, but knowing Tendulkar, he will turn uneasy in the bed tonight, atleast once, thinking about the game at Lahli.
We will know soon.
