Hue n Cry for Sachin Tendulkar

Well since couple of dayz I am listening to lots of hullabaloo about Gilchrist comments on Tendulkar.  Lot of former Indian cricketers and so called cricket experts (whz his name Boria Majumdar I think so) are lambasting Gilchrist for his quotes in his autobiography.  Now what the hell is their problem with Gilchirst.  I am neither a big fan of Gilchrist or Tendulkar (even neither of cricket), but then people telling that Sachin has scored 12,000 runs and he is icon, so he cannot be dishonest.

Now what has 12,000 runs has to do with honesty, ultimately Sachin is a human being and he can be dishonest.  I have seen Gilchirst walking off more times compared to sachin whenever he is out on the field.  Neway Gilchirst was in better position compared to former cricketers and experts to say weather sachin had lied or not.  We just cannot lambaste him even when we are completely ignorant about the facts what happened in the field during the “Monkeygate” scandal.  I think INDIA is too chauvinist for their self made icons.
