It crossed my mind that you might refer to this speech. A speech where a retiring sportsperson (shock, horror!) thanked his family, friends, fans and mentors. It makes him no better or worse than any...

As a Yorkshireman I'll always have a soft spot for Tendulkar, but the sycophancy has been nauseating during this test. He is simply a man with a great...
