Manuka sightscreens to be widened for Tendulkar?

Thumper 16 October 2007 8

The Canberra Times reports that ACT cricket is looking at extending the Manuka sightscreens, apparently because Indian genius batsman Sachin Tendulkar likes wide screens.

The Manuka sightscreens are of an international standard so I really don’t think they should waste money for the whim of one player, even if this player is one of the greatest of all time.

The ACT will stage three international matches this season, those being;

ACT Invitational XI vs India on January 10-12;
Prime Minister’s XI vs Sri Lanka on January 30;
India vs Sri Lanka on February 12

waiting for the chance to no ball murali too!

and they do keep the indian crowds in cages at their cricket grounds with all those high fences.. i think it would be most appropriate to give them the monkey!

Can we all make monkey noises whenever one of the Indians is near the fence?

everyime I have seen tendulkar bat (live) he has got out cheaply and for a low score.

Sreesanth, what a loser. Popgun speed and a serious attitude problem.

He’ll get moosed in Australia.

Tendulkar’s just setting up his excuse for when he’s dismissed cheaply.

tending to agree with Androyd there as i’m not sure on the international standard claim.. might be domestic standard.

But if i’m wrong, they shouldn’t be making changes for him.

Last time I was there the sightscreens were the size of a postage stamp, so even if it’s done for Tendulkar it’s probably of broader benefit. As long as Sreesanth doesn’t get too excited and start biting chunks out of it!
