The straight drive defines the very aesthetics of cricket. Throughout his 24 years as a cricketer Sachin Tendulkar defined the very aesthetics of the straight drive.
Tendulkar’s straight drive is a work of art and needs to be forever installed in a great museum.
End of my tribute to Sachin Tendulkar, the sovereign of cricket, on his retirement.
P.S.: There are hundreds of videos but the one here contains the very essence of Sachin Tendulkar’s straight drive. This is cricketing elegance at its purest.
