Sounds like you know better than Sachin does.
Sorry mate if i offended you...I was only trying to understand the logic for something, neither claimed I knew it nor know more than the master...

Or maybe he is just curious to know how Sachin use it with such mastery.
Exactly..trying to understand only what seems to be a paradox (and which is what makes it a fascinating)..no claims made here on self knowledge or mastery..

I was always amazed at ST! He is 5'5 or 5'6 or whatever his height is and used to use a 3lb+ brilliantly and against 90mph bowling! I know he had to come down in weight due to his elbow so 2'12 is his "light" feather like bat  :(
I am 6'3 and 17 stone and yet I would only just be comfortable using his light bat!! I feel so inadequate!!  :o

Looks wonderful. No matter what grade that bat was, he had the talent as Dave mentioned.

Correct me if I am wrong, but I believe the reason he used such a heavy bat throughout his career was because he used to borrow his older brothers bat growing up and he adjusted to it.

Precisely.

That is correct about him having to use his older brother Ajit's, bat. He talked about that in 'Walk the Talk' on NDTV. Can easily be found on YT. It was a Long Handle bat.

I think he also got used to a certain grip (bottom-hand dominated) because of him having to use a heavy bat in his youth.

If you feel bad about being able to use "only" upto 2-12 bat, then what to say of folks like me who struggle with anything over 2-8.. :D
