Ofcourse not dear. he is my all time favourite cricketer. i was to ask the question wishing him but you have done that . Any how, he is a thorough sportsman , a thorough gentlemen , unlike todays stars. Todays stars have to learn a many things from the little master. Who can forget him by calling Bob Taylor during the match at Mumbai . His innings are so sweet, so elegant and there is some mystic in it. The great innings played by him are so many. After Saurab Ganguly, whenever he scored a test century, india never lose the test. The famous square cut, so breath taking. Watching him play is like reading poetry or seeing or watching the paintings of the great masters like Piccaso, Leonardo Vinci or Micheal Angelo or wordsworth, Shelly, Keats, Milton poems, all rolled into one. let him enjoy his birthday. Happy birthday to him and may God give him a long and fruitful life.

He was indeed a great cricketer. His many innings were quite thrilling under trying circumstances. His 97 not out at Chennai against Andy Roberts West Indies, I believe is the best by any till date. Many happy returns to the legend.
