The only difference between watching MSD and Sachin Tendulkar was that

When Dhoni bats I absolutely love and totally relish it every single time and mostly end up being happy that he finished the match..

But When Sachin batted every time

1) I felt like I was batting there.
2) It was so happy just to read his name displayed on the television screen..
3) Checked if his avg is in high 44s
4) I wished his score in that innings ends up above his overall avg..
5) Checked the number of 50s.. The number of 100s.. Hoping its far away from next best batsman..
6) Wished he scored run a ball to maintain Strike rate above 86,
7) Wished he ends up not out hoping his avg ll increase tremendously..
8) Get scared when scary looking bowlers and debutantes bowled at him.
9) Closely listened how commentators appreciated him when he comes to bat and when he hits his trademark shots.
10) Adored the way he ran with his pads flapping quickly..
11) Hoped the umpires didn't ruin his innings
12) Scolded him if he tried risky paddle sweeps against experienced spinners yet pray for him to be there. "Seri seri paathu aadu.. "
13) Switch off TV after dismissal
14) Hoped he took wickets bowling, if he didn't score big that day
15) Hoped he got Man of the match for whatever he did.
