Is he human?

It was one of those priceless Mastercard moments. Sachin was jumping like a child after taking a spectacular catch of Bhajji's ball. I felt goosebumps and my eyes were wet for a few seconds. I am dead sure that it was that catch and nothing else that pumped the Aussie collapse from 49-1 to 57-5. It was that special.

Mike Atherton sums up the non-cricketer aspect of Sachin as - "The archives recall not one single incriminating incident, not one drunken escapade, not one reported affair, not one spat with a team-mate or reporter ... is he human?"
