I was mere 8 years old when I saw a long haired guy walking into the middle and smashing 148 runs against the juggernaut bowling line up of Pakistan. That was the day when you had announced yourself in the world cricket. Batting at no. 5/6 for almost entire career and still scoring 10000 runs is what makes you a champion. Mahendra Singh Dhoni sir, You became the first ever cricketer to score 10000 with an average of 50+ in ODIs. With World T-20, World Cup and Champions trophy all under your prestigious belt, when you were asked about your plans you averred that "I don't mid repeating everything". My idol, i.e you, one of the very few person for whom process is more important than result. You believe in giving 100% on the field and don't worry about the results. After India's exit from 2007 WC hoi pollois catapulted stones at your house but they didn't build one for you when you answered their prayers and gifted them the world cup four years later. I haven't seen any cricket hitherto for whom representing the nation is more important than the birth of his daughter. When Ziva was born ahead of 2015 WC you refused to take a flight back home and instead adhered to the team and because of this sheer staunchness India became indomitable till semis. I don't think a soul like you deserves anything but love. Whenever India is in pressure situations 1.2 billions still look at you hoping for a miracle.
