London: On the eve of the first Test between India and England at Mohali, the British media on Sunday sent out a warning to the English team saying master-blaster Sachin Tendulkar must now be ready to "flay young bowlers all over India if they did not get it right"."Heat is on the master," the Sunday Times said, adding, "It was Tendulkar's standing in the Indian society which alone explained the seismic tremors that Mike Denness' actions sent through the country. Denness had handed down controversial punishments to six Indian players including Tendulkar during the second cricket Test in Johannesburg, which sparked off a stand-off between ICC and the Indian authorities.Welcoming the end of impasse on Friday following an amicable agreement between ICC and the BCCI, the paper concentrated on the task that now lay ahead that of tackling Tendulkar."So what is England going to do to stop him? Trying to curb the little master has given even the greatest bowlers nightmares ask Shane Warne so what is the team going to do to such an experienced attack? "Such an apparently unequal contest is already fuelling talks of Tendulkar breaking more records, may be Brian Lara's world Test best of 375 and it is possible that by Christmas, the shaven-headed seamers Matthew Hoggard, Richard Johnson and Craig White will be wishing they had gone the whole hog and taken up life in a monastery," the newspaper said.
