Tendulkar in actionSachin Tendulkar played a classy cricket innings of 59 runs off 49 balls as the Mumbai Indians cricket team smashed the Chennai Superkings. Playing on a bouncy , seaming track, Sachin Tendulkar quickly guaged the state of the pitch quickly and decided that heroics are not the order of the day

Even after the loss of Sanath Jayasurya, Sachin Tendulkar decided that it was better to play a conservative innings for the Mumbai Indians IPL 2 cricket team by IPL standards, and play out the Chennai seam bowlers

Sachin Tendulkar ‘s innings of 59 runs was in line with Shaun Pollock ‘s strategy for Sachin ‘s role in IPL 2009

It appears that Shaun Pollock ‘s strategy for the Mumbai Indians is to have Sachin Tendulkar hold up one end with singles and have players like Sanath Jayasurya and Abhishek Nayar spike the opposition with boundaries from the other end

For the first Mumbai Indians IPL 2 2009 cricket match, this strategy worked brilliantly, as the other Mumbai batsmen, notably Abhishek Nayar were able to score freely since the Mumbai IPL had wickets in hand

As Sachin Tendulkar demonstrated, even IPL T20 cricket needs some thinking and loads of experience

Any form of cricket needs a cool head on one’s shoulders, and Sachin Tendulkar ably demonstrated that in the T20 Mumbai Indians cricket match. With his experience,Sachin Tendulkar was able to judge the pitch quickly and decide that a score of 120-150 runs was a winning total on the seaming track

Sachin Tendulkar is of course the best cricketer in the world, whether it is T20 cricket, test cricket or one day international cricket
