A Boost Anthem for Sachin by ‘Kolaveri’ Dhanush


Myself . 

By T.V. Antony Raj

.

.

Boost is India’s leading malt-based health food drink having a chocolate flavour. Sachin Tendulkar became the brand ambassador for Boost with his debut in 1989 at the age of seventeen.

.

Anirudh Ravichander and Dhanush

.

The 28-year-old actor Dhanush and music director Anirudh Ravichander riding high on the success of their Tanglish song “Why this kolaveri di?” was approached by Boost to create an anthem to pay tribute to Sachin’s 23 years of stamina.

“It’s a great honour to sing for a legend like Sachin Tendulkar. I am happy that I have been chosen to do this. He is the pride of our nation. When I was offered to do the song I didn’t think twice and just knew that I had to do it. I have really worked hard on the song and I hope people enjoy it,” Dhanush said.

When asked whether he had met Sachin, the actor said, “No I haven’t met Sachin … I don’t think he knows me or that I am singing a song for him but I hope he likes the song.”

Here is the video uploaded by BoostEnergyIndia on Feb 7, 2012.

And here is the lyrics of the song in Tanglish.

2012 Indian Premier League – Schedule


.

Myself By T.V. Antony Raj

.

.

The Indian Premier League (IPL) is a professional league for Twenty20 cricket competition in India. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), with headquarters in Mumbai, initiated this event in 2008.

The 2012 Indian Premier League season, abbreviated as IPL 5 or the IPL 2012, will be the fifth season of the Indian Premier League. The tournament will begin on 4 April and end on 27 May 2012. The opening and closing ceremonies will be held in M. A. Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai, the home venue of the reigning champions Chennai Super Kings.

Last season 10 teams participated in this popular event; but this season the number of teams participating has been reduced from ten to nine with the termination of Kochi Tuskers Kerala. Each team has lassoed in prestigious cricket players from around the world.

Seasons

First season – 2008

The inaugural season of the tournament started on 18 April 2008. The season lasted for 46 days. Out of the 59 matches scheduled, 58 took place and 1 was a wash out due to rain. The final was played in DY Patil Stadium, Nerul, Navi Mumbai. Every team played each other both at home and away in a round robin system. The top four ranking sides progressed to the knockout stage of semi-finals followed by a final.

Rajasthan Royals, captained and coached by Shane Warne, defeated Chennai Super Kings in a last ball thriller and emerged as the inaugural IPL champions.

Second SEASON – 2009

The 2009 season and the General Elections in India coincided. The venue for the IPL matches was shifted to South Africa since there was a fear for the safety the players. The format of the tournament remained same as the inaugural one.

Hyderabad Deccan Chargers, who finished last in the first season, were big underdogs, but came out as eventual winners defeating the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the final by setting a target of 144 runs with the help of Gibbs(53) and defended it.

third SEASON – 2010

In the third season which opened in January 2010 with the auction for players. 66 players were on offer but only 11 players were sold.

In this season, due to the ongoing political crisis in the Telangana region in Andhra Pradesh, India, Hyderabad Deccan Chargers did not play at their preferred home location of Hyderabad, India.

This season, the new bases for the champions of the second season were Nagpur, Navi Mumbai and Cuttack.

The first semi-final was won by Mumbai Indians who defeated Bangalore Royal Challengers by 35 runs. Chennai Super Kings defeated Hyderabad Deccan Chargers in the second semi-final.

The final was played between Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians. Chennai Super Kings won by a margin of 22 runs.

fourth SEASON- 2011

On 21 March 2010, it was announced in Chennai that two new teams from Pune and Kochi will be added to the IPL for the fourth season. However, the bid around the Kochi franchisee turned controversial resulting in the resignation of minister, Shashi Tharoor from the Central Government and investigations by various departments of the Government of India into the financial dealings of IPL and the other existing franchisees.

Later, Lalit Modi was also removed from IPL chairmanship by BCCI. On December 5, 2010, it was confirmed that Kochi Tuskers will take part in the fourth season of IPL.

The addition of the two teams Pune Warriors and Kochi Tuskers increased the number of franchises from 8 to 10.

Chennai Super Kings won their second consecutive IPL title after defeating Royal Challengers Bangalore by 58 runs in the fourth season of IPL.  This was the first time a franchise has won two IPL titles, had four consecutive semi-final visits, come to the finals three times, and successfully defended their title.

The top four teams namely CSK, RCB, KKR and MI also qualified for the Champions League. Mumbai Indians are the current Champions League Twenty20 champions.

In 2010, in association with Indiatimes live broadcast on YouTube of the IPL matches became possible. It was the first sporting event ever to be broadcast live on YouTube.

During the fourth season, the IPL brand value was estimated to be around $3.67 billion According to the Annual Review of Global Sports Salaries by sportingintelligence.com, IPL is the second highest-paid league, based on first-team salaries on a pro rata basis, second only to the NBA. It is estimated that the average salary of an IPL player over a year would be $3.84 million.

FIfth SEASON – 2012

The fifth season with 9 teams is set to start on 4 April 2012 in Chennai, for which the players auction was held on February 4, 2012 in Bangalore. The season saw IPL authority increasing the number of players in each squad to 33 from the previous limit of 30 and also increased the salary cap by $2 million.

I have played with him long enough to understand his approach, but I am amazed at the man’s zeal. He wants to be perfect always. His humility is amazing. I have seen Sachin carry drinks for the junior most, much to the embarrassment of the youngster. His discipline is infectious. For Mumbai nets, he comes in the Mumbai training gear. He would never don an India cap or T-shirt for a Mumbai match. He will also not allow anyone to carry his cricket coffin.”  Pravin Amre (Sachin Tendulkar’s coach at Mumbai)

Raj Singh Dungarpur a former president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India introduced 16-year-old Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar to the world of cricket. The BCCI selection committee under the chairmanship of Dungarpur chose Sachin Tendulkar for the 1989 Indian tour of Pakistan

International Test debut

On his international Test debut in November 1989, Sachin Tendulkar was 16 years 205 days of age, the third youngest cricketer to make his first appearance in international cricket. Mushtaq Mohammad of Pakistan has the honour of being the first youngest person to play Test cricket at 15 years and 124 days; however, there exists some doubt about his exact age at his debut. The second youngest Test Player Aaqib Javed debuted at 16 years 189 days. Since then there have been two players who were younger than Sachin on the day of their cricket Test debut: Mohammad Sharif of Bangladesh (15 years 128 days), and Hasan Raza of Pakistan (14 years 227 days).

Sachin Tendulkar played his first Test match against Pakistan in Karachi. He made just 15 runs bowled out by Waqar Younis, who also made his debut in that match. Cricket critics commended Sachin for braving numerous blows to his body at the hands of the Pakistani pace attack in this series. In the final test in Sialkot, though hit on the nose by a bouncer, he declined medical assistance and continued to bat, with a bleeding nose. In that Test series, Sachin scored 215 runs in all at an average of 35.83.

In a 20 over exhibition game in Peshawar, Tendulkar scored 53 runs off 18 balls, including an over in which he scored 27 runs off Abdul Qadir. The then Indian captain Krishnamachari Srikkanth later recalled this match as “one of the best innings I have seen.”

Maiden International TEST Century

On August 14, 1990, in his 9th international test appearance Sachin Tendulkar scored his maiden Test century vs. England at Old Trafford, Manchester. He was 119 not out in the second innings. This innings is particularly noteworthy as it helped India to clinch an honorable draw in the face of a certain defeat.

At that time, Kapil Dev held the record for the youngest Indian centurion.  On January 24, 1979 Kapil Dev scored 126* with four fours and one six in a drawn match against West Indies at Feroz Shah Kotla Ground, New Delhi.

When Sachin Tendulkar scored his maiden century in 1990, he was the second youngest to score a century in international Test cricket.

Mushtaq Mohammad of Pakistan set the first record as the youngest to score a century in his 6th Test with 101 runs against India in Feroz Shah Kotla Ground, New Delhi when he was just 17 years and 78 days old.

Mohammad Ashraful of Bangladesh bettered Mushtaq’s record that stood for over 40 years. Ashraful made his Test debut on 6 September 2001 against Sri Lanka. He  top-scored in each innings. Although Bangladesh slumped to an innings defeat, Ashraful scored 114, and in the process became the youngest player to score a Test century, beating Mushtaq Mohammad’s record and the second Bangladesh player to score a Test century on debut, the first since Aminul Islam Bulbul in 2000 during Bangladesh’s first Test.

Yesterday, Friday March 16, 2012, playing in the 4th One Day International match of the Asia Cup 2012 against the hosts Bangladesh, Sachin Tendulkar scored a century thus becoming the only man in the history of the sport to score 100 centuries in international cricket. He took the single off Shakib Al Hasan of Bangladesh and finally achieved the elusive milestone.

Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh congratulated the Master Blaster saying, “I join the nation in congratulating Sachin Tendulkar on his making history – a hundred centuries… He has made India proud. Tendulkar’s long career has been a triumph of class, character and courage. Wish him many more innings and feats to continue inspiring the youth.”

ICC Chief Executive Haroon Lorgat also congratulated the iconic batsman achieving the feat.

“On behalf of every cricket fan around the globe, I congratulate Sachin on becoming the first person to score 100 centuries for his country. This is indeed a magnificent feat and not likely to be easily emulated,” said Lorgat.

“Fans have admired Sachin for more than 20 years and have recently waited with great expectation for his 100th international century. The number 100 is special for a batsman and to record 100 centuries for your country is a massive statement.”

Lorgat also said that Tendulkar was a marvel to cricket lovers around the world and a true role model.

“Like millions of others, I have personally followed his career ever since he first played for India as a gifted 16-year-old and now, more than two decades later, his passion and personal records, which include more than 33,000 runs at international level, is a modern-day wonder.

“He is a marvel to cricket lovers around the world and with an array of batting records, Sachin is a true role model who will undoubtedly hold a special place in cricket’s history,” he said. (PTI)

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) President N Srinivasan heaped praises on Sachin Tendulkar for becoming the first cricketer in the world to score 100 international centuries and said that 16th March 2012 would never be forgotten.

“Ever since he made his international début in November 1989, Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar has strode cricketing arenas the world over, like a colossus. He has broken old records and set new benchmarks. He has been an inspiration to billions, and an ornament to the sport,” said Srinivasan.

“16 March 2012 will never be forgotten by cricket-lovers. On behalf of the BCCI, I would like to congratulate Sachin Tendulkar for completing a century of international centuries,” he added. (PTI)

And bollywood? Of course it went crazy and started twitting.

“God’s special creation …Sachin Tendulkar!! India breathes normally..!! Sachin completes an incredible feat!! A hundered 100’s…Never done before, perhaps never after!!!” said Amithab Bachchan.  “A lion does not concern himself with the opinions of the sheep,” the megastar tweeted hinting at Sachin’s critics.

And his son Abhishek Bachan tweeted, “How good is Sachin? he’s the best. period! stop analyzing him. stop being cynical. just celebrated him!”

The 82-year old Queen of Melody, Lata Mangeshkar, twitted: “A big congratulations to Sachin. He has once again created history with his superb innings.”

Actress Bipasha Basu tweeted:  “Saluting The Great Tendulkar for his 100th 100! We stropped our shoot to see it happen! Jubilant and Ecstatic.”

Action hero Akshay Kumar tweeted, “Salute to the man who never gave up in spite of all the criticisms. Finally he did it, Sachin creates history in world cricket! Congrats to Sachin Hundredkar.”

“Truly Superman!! Sachin Tendulkar India salutes you for your 100th 100,” tweeted Tollywood actor Rana Daggubati.

38-year-old cricket star, Sachin Tendulkar has scored 49 centuries in One Day International matches and 51 in international Tests.

Tendulkar scored his 99th international hundred more than a year ago on home soil. It took him more than one year to reach the milestone of scoring 100 centuries in international cricket.

His 49th ODI hundred in Dhaka brought up a unique century of centuries that no other player is close to achieving. Former Australian captain Ricky Ponting is next best with 71 international centuries, and South Africa’s Jacques Kallis trails behind him with 59.

220px-Adidas_Sachin_100_Centuries_LogoIn the 1990s, Adidas signed world’s iconic batsman Sachin Tendulkar of India and made shoes for him. Tendulkar still wears Adidas shoes while playing matches. Since 2008, Adidas has sponsored the cricket bat used by Sachin Tendulkar. It created a new bat, ‘Adidas MasterBlaster Elite’, personalized for him.
