I have grown up watching India getting bundled for 100 and 66 against the South African pace battery. I have endured the heartbreak of watching India collapse for 81 while chasing only 120 runs at Barbados. I have lived the agony of watching the lone warrior — Tendulkar — getting out “shoulder before wicket” when India lost the test series 3–0 in Australia. I cried when India lost to Pakistan in Chennai after Tendulkar’s valiant 136 was followed by the loss of four wickets for four runs. All this before I barely reached my teens.

Yes, things changed after that…
