TON­DULKAR’S LOST DRIVE?

Hindustan Times (Patna) - - YEAR REVIEW 2012 -

In­dian cricket’s tal­is­man for two decades fi­nally did it, nail­ing that 100th in­ter­na­tional cen­tury. END OF A WAIT: Yes, it came against Bangladesh, and the match was lost, but the cel­e­bra­tions showed what it meant to his le­gion of fans. NOT DONE YET? At 39, his magic is on the wane, but few can bet against him con­jur­ing up a few more such spe­cial mo­ments.
