Winning answer - signed cricket bat set valued at $20,000

The prize was a set of three cricket bats signed by Donald Bradman, Sachin Tendulkar and Steve Waugh valued at $20,000. There were 550 entries (I thought there'd be a lot more with a prize like that!). The question was: "Who is your greatest cricket legend and why?"

The winning answer was:

“Sachin Tendulker is my greatest legend, because he batted like a thunder bolt, and engraved his immortal signature on the sandy shore of world cricket”.

Sorry, it wasn't my winning answer, (I wish!) it was won by a 16 yo girl whose brother is called Sachin!

How can someone under 18 even be eligible to win this!?
posted 9-4-2015 @ 07:54 PM www


I don't think you had to be 18 or over to enter.

I'd been thinking about this one, so thanks for posting the winning answer Suzanne. But I agree with wwwhistler, I don't get it!!

Maybe it was a drawout, as I agree it does not make sense
posted 9-4-2015 @ 10:05 PM www


Agree, the winning answer doesn't make sense to me either!

Congratulations to the winner, but I too am lost on the references.. Sandy shores of cricket? Interesting interpretation.. What a fabulous prize though! Definitely some sport memorabilia envy here!

Cricket doesn't have sandy shores!!! Odd. Ah well. I didn't enter, so good luck to them.

I think they refer to beaches in India as sandy shores, so it kinda makes sense. ;)

To me it seems she's saying Sachin is like a god, throwing/"batting" thunder bolts back down the pitch and having an "immortal" signature, like a god would. (And in India he is considered like a god).

Anyway, they chose her as the winner so congrats to her.

(I hope though she did spell his name right and didn't put Tendulker as written in the answer above!)

You're like the WOL Whisperer

my take is she thinks he was so good he was able to engrave his name on to sand (an ever changing surface)
