Master Blaster - Sachin Tendulkar - Poem by krishnakumar chandrasekar nair

Why do galleries often roar
When the master blaster comes to bat?
Why do hairs stand end on end
At every ball he so gallantly whacks?

As the bowler pitches high or low
He bends and tames every delivery
With his bat to swing and show
Almost every ball to the far boundary

Fours and Sixes and runs in-between
In raptures we burst and scream
For when the master blaster is at the pitch
Runs seemingly gather without a hitch

Many a time it has been often said
When the nation waited with baited breath
He fought gallantly and narrowly prevented
What would have been our teams premature death

The master blaster of the shimmering greens
He now regally walks into history’ s page
And his legendary bat, the stuff of dreams
Will finally rest afters years of batting rage....

Fare ye well, Sachin, master of the pitch
You leave behind a legacy very rich
That future Indians sportsmen can inspire
To win emulating your past passion and fire.....

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Sachin is leaving the greens and many of us find it heart breaking.Cricket in India is never complete without him and this poem is my humble tribute to him.

    Yes, Sachin will ever remain a living legend who did Indians proud! His adieu to the field will be a sad memory to cricket lovers not only of India, but the world over! But he has to leave space for the young entrants! Enjoyed this passionate write of great flow and feeling! A 10 for this! (Report) Reply
