Similarly, the previous ODI against New Zealand was also abandoned due to rain, after India had climbed to a respectable position. Sachin Tendulkar, who claims Chennai to be his lucky venue, and where he played one of his best Test knocks (the 136 against Pakistan which India lost by a small margin), was denied a fifty that day.
And the little master would have claimed another record (maximum ODI appearances – 357) had today’s match not been abandoned. I think the last completed international game at Chennai, the stadium where Pakistan was given a rare rousing ovation after their Test victory, happened four years ago – a victory against England.
Let’s hope and pray that the upcoming Test match against Sri Lanka goes on without any problems, treating the Chennai audience royally.
