But can Sachin score on a cold, wet night at Stoke ?

As Sachin Tendulkar continues to score more runs, his tally now standing at a not too insignificant amount of over 32,000 runs in international cricket, his critics on the internet also just seem to keep rising. For example, just a couple of days ago, the editor of a business newspaper of India was blunt enough to suggest that Sachin is just a selfish player. And when compared to him, Sreesanth at least fields.
And last night, this random bloke called abhility asked a very pertinent question. He tweeted that while it is all very well for Sachin to score a few runs here and there - Can he score on a cold, wet night at Stoke ? It is to be noted that world famous football commentator and champion of sexism, Andy Gray has often raised similar doubts on Lionel Messi's ability to perform on a cold, wet night at Stoke.
On being reminded by several Sachin followers that Stoke is not a cricket team and that Sachin had scored a century at Old Trafford -which is good enough - for most football fans - abhility replied that the Stoke challenge is far more significant given the fact that it is widely believed that Stoke also play a game which is not football. It is also to be noted that there is a long held belief among several pundits led by the Big Sam Allardyce, that Sachin is known to not like it up him. A well directed two handed beamer from Rory Delap should be good enough to take care of the little fella. And as a final point in his argument - it was said that Sachin Tendulkar was only 2 years old when Tony Pulis, the Stoke City coach, made his professional debut.
