Fitting tribute

I’ve always been slightly at a loss to explain just why I enjoy watching Sachin Tendulkar bat. Peter Roebuck describes it beautifully in his recent column:

Spectators find in [Tendulkar’s batting] the same satisfaction as a mathematician does in a formula. Tendulkar does not indulge himself at the crease. His style is not a style at all, merely his way of scoring runs. Even the apparently cheeky upper cut and the reverse sweep aired yesterday take into account score and field. He calculates and then commits.
