SACHIN FAILS IN PRESSURE SITUATIONS?

If Sachin plays well, if Sachin is there at the crease there are no tensions... no pressures. The pressue situations arise when sachin gets out! Only when Sachin gets out!!
For critics who say Sachin is playing of only his personal mile stones- If he fails, it is only because of the pressure building up in his mind. That means he is not just playing for runs but to make sure that his team WINS. But, a champ like tendulkar had overcome this pressure situation several times.

A fact on his famous nervous 90s. - Critics often say that He holds the record for getting out on 90's For getting out in 90's, first u have to reach 90. He is the one who got out most in 90's BECOZ he is the one who reached 90's more than anyone else! if there are other ppl who reached 90's and didnt get out, then they will be having more 100's than Sachin!


Most interesting fact - Sachin Tendulkar is the only batsman in the Test cricket history to hit 6 centuries with a SIXER!

1. Walsh ( a hook shot) against WestIndies in 1994 at Nagpur

2. Min Patel[off spinner,straight down the ground] against England in 1996 at Birmingham.

3. Wiseman[off spinner,straight down the ground] against Newzealnad in 1999 at Wellington.

4. Colin miller of aus straight ovr his head 4 six wen he was on 94.

5. Nathan Hauritz Over wide long on during his 214 vs Aus 2010

6. M. Morkel over wkt keepers head during 146 vs SA in 2011


Sachin has scored a world record of 6 centuries and 10 half centuries in tournament finals with an average of 54.45


His 17 ODI centuries came when chasing the target. out of it 14 times india won. [This includes the mammoth 175 he scored against australia. The opening batsman Sachin scored half of the target! but the tail enders spoiled the party.]


In the last 5 years in 4th innings of a test match!

Sachin - has scored 6 fifty plus scores out of this india won 5 matches and lost 1

Laxman - has scored 4 fifty plus scores out of this india won 3 matches and lost 1

Dravid - has not scored even a single fifty plus score in the last 5 years.

But, still... according to critics, Sachin is useless in 4th innings and dravid and laxman are gods of 4th innings! Strange?!


Sachin is the player who got out maximum numbers of times bcoz of bad or wrong decision by Umpires. [See the complete list here]


Sachin Holds the record of maxium number of 100’s for loosing team.


Out of his first 18 tons in ODI, 10 were while chasing and 4 under lights.


Now we can analyize some of his performances in some pressure filled matches!


1. Hero Cup Semi final vs S.Africa 1993
Final over of the match! South Africa needed 6 runs in the final over!
IS THAT A PRESSURE SITUATION?
Check the Score card of the match 
Sachin bowled the final over of that match and he gave only 3 runs! Note that, it was a SEMI FINAL!
WAS THAT A PRESSURE SITUATION...! TEAM NEEDED HIM AND HE DELIVERED...!

2. South Africa vs India at Centurian. 2010-11

India- First Innings- all out for 136. Highest scorer Sachin 36.
South Africa scored 620 and got a huge first innings lead of 484.

3rd Innings- India 459 allout! and South Africa won by an innings and 25 runs!
SACHIN NOT OUT ON 111 in that 3rd innings! 
Sachin was unbeaten on 111 when the 11th batsman was dismissed! Where were the so called match savers and match winners?

WAS THAT A PRESSURE SITUATION...! TEAM NEEDED HIM AND HE DELIVERED...!

South Africa could not find a way past Sachin Tendulkar but that did not deny them victory, South Africa v India, 1st Test, Centurion, 5th day, December 20, 2010

3. Hyderabad ODI vs Australia, 2009

IS CHASING 351 IN A 50 OVER MATCH A PRESSURE SITUATION? 
Tendulkar almost chased 351 on his own but, with the target in sight, he got out and the rest choked, falling short by three runs with two balls still to go. In Chennai in 1998-99, Tendulkar, having played an innings as incredible as this, left the last three wickets 17 to get; tonight he left them 19 off 17. -cricinfo
sachin didnt get support from his team mates. only Suresh Raina helped sachin a bit with his half century. 
What is the job of an opener in an ODI? Play 300 balls and take total runs needed? Anyway, Sachin took 141 balls and scored half of the target! 175!

4. 1999 Chennai Test vs Pakistan

Sachin came to crease when Laxman was dismissed for a duck, 6 for 2 and dravid Azhardeen n ganguly were dismissed for 10, 7 and 2 respectively.
Hey criics, IS THAT A PRESSURE SITUATION?
 
Sachin scored a match winning 136 in the fourth innings.
 
The only other batsman supported him was Nayan Mongia with 52 runs. The next highest scorer was EXTRAS.

Sachin with severe BACK PAIN was executing his shots firmly and played this innings by putting a bag of ice cubes on his back, and had pain killers...

Sachin wanted to finish the match as soon as possible so he attempted a huge shot over mid on.

When sachin was dismissed India needed 16 runs, with 3 wickets remaining. BUT lost that match for 12 runs...

WAS THAT A PRESSURE SITUATION...! TEAM NEEDED HIM AND HE DELIVERED...!

5. Final qualifying match vs Australia - Sharjah Cup

IS CHASING A HUGE TARGET IN FINAL QUALIFYING MATCH A SIMPLE TASK? WILL THERE BE ANY PRESSURE?
India then had two targets: 285 to win the match, 254 to qualify on run-rate. 
After a dust storm accounted for four overs, these were revised to 276 and 237. Their success was thanks to a glorious 143 from Tendulkar from 131 balls.

HE LEFT THE CREASE AFTER MAKING SURE THAT INDIA WILL PLAY THE FINAL!
