The funniest moments on a cricket field - youtu.be/PvZGdqZ5Ovc 24 YEARS OF THE COVERDRIVE - youtu.be/PaHPcWWar9I Sachin Tendulkar was in imperious form at Christchurch, hitting five sixes and 16 fours in his innings on the way to a majestic 163, his first ODI ton in New Zealand. Not the ones Tendulkar the wonderkid used to score, but the ones the master assessor does. After Sehwag got out, Tendulkar pulled the plug out of New Zealand's confidence with a counterattack in the next few overs. The square cut off Tim Southee in the over after Sehwag's dismissal, between point and cover, who were close to each other, will stay with the bowler for a long time. Three boundaries came in the next three overs, and Tendulkar went back to accumulation mode again. The most destructive phase of the innings came after the century, by which time the pain in his abs, where he was hit in the last game, was starting to reach unbearable proportions. The big hits kept coming after that, the 200 kept coming closer to sight with every over. Tendulkar needed just 32 deliveries to move from 100 to 163. But he was forced to retire hurt with what looked like a pulled stomach muscle after the 45th over and in the end got his 58th man of the match award!
