This is Sachin Tendulkar’s sixth world cup. He goes into the final knowing that, at thirty-seven, this is his last shot at glory. He will play the match to win the first Indian world cup in cricket since 1983. He will have a shot at completing one hundred international centuries. He is en route to being the man of the series. Thirty years from now, Bradman will be a fading memory and Tendulkar will be the name that cricket fans say in reverence.

This is what sporting legends are made of.
