Most runs scored in Test matches (five day internationals; the highest form of the game) is one of cricket's big records. Breaking it requires batting skill of the highest order and endurance. Sachin Tendulkar, still the Little Master at 35, has both.
Today, playing against Australia in Mohali, the Indian surpassed West Indian Brian Lara's 11,953 runs, and crossed the 12,000 runs mark before being dismissed. The innings was a cameo of his style: solid and forceful changing into wristy and skillful as the innings progressed.
Underpinning it all is stroke play that is both powerful and inventive, yet highly disciplined. There is something of the late Sir Donald Bradman, the game's greatest batsman, to Tendulkar in his relentless accumulation of runs.

I thank you for your continued support of our efforts to preserve Cridge Park and the greens of �the Canadian Pacific Lawn Bowling Club. We appear to be getting down to brass tacks now.
A variety of concerned community groups, including local sports clubs, have banded together to form the Cridge Park Rescue Group. Our aim has been to present a united front to Victoria City Council on their plans to develop Cridge Park into a Cultural Precinct.... which seems to be at the root of this threat to destroy an historic sports institution.
We've taken advantage of the civic election to press home the great value of both the park and it's use to the local community. To this end we've gathered the views of each candidate and posted them on our�web-site�www.cridgeparkrescue.com��I invite you to visit and pass on the link to your membership. Just click on 'Candidate Survey Responses'�
Next Tuesday, October 28th the CPR is hosting an all candidate forum on "The Future Of Victoria's Parks." in the hall of the Church Of Our Lord 626 Humboldt, at Blanshard. 7:30 - 9:00 p.m. Candidates will be on hand to discuss one-on-one issues related to park planning and the impact of increased density and demographic changes we can all expect to face.�
In light of recent events, how future Councils manage and allocate space and resources for new or existing sport user groups will be of particular interest to the bowling club members. I'm assuming how user initiated park improvements should be regarded in terms of historic tenure would also be of great interest to sports organizations such as yours.
This is an excellent chance to pin candidates down on how we can work together to ensure recreational sports programs are provided to the citizens of Victoria. I'm hoping you can help ensure a good turnout by spreading the word of our forum to your membership.�
Although only Victoria residents can vote for these people, we encourage anyone interested in the issues to attend. Coaches, umpires, managers and fundraisers.... regardless of where they live, have a big hand in supporting these programs. Their views should be heard as well.
If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to reply back to this address or call me at 250-384-5499
Thanks on behalf of the Cridge Park Rescue Group.
