In the World cup match between India and West Indies, Sachin Tendulkar once again walked after given not out because he knew he had nicked it and was out. A debate that has come to haunt this game many a times. Last time it was with Gilchrist in WC 2003 and now this time in 2011 it has already happened with a few top notch batsmen – Sachin, Ponting and Jayawardena – the full story is here.
I see this as something you live you life – do you want to have integrity as a part of your life or not. There are many things you do in life only you know and there is no way someone else can find out. It is for you to decide how you deal with it. You can try and explain your scenario to others, and hope they understand you.
I am going through a similar phase and hope that the ones I love understand that my decisions may lead all of us though a tough patch in our lives, but it about integrity and legacy we want to leave for our child.
Decisions that are right are happy moments but we are defined by the way we stand by our incorrect decisions.
