Best quotes on Sachin Tendulkar


In our series of features on Sachin completing 20 years in International cricket, we
present some of the best quotes that current and former cricketers have made on the
master-blaster. Find what Don Bradman, Sunil Gavaskar, Dennis Lillee, Greg Chappell,
have to say about Sachin Tendulkar.

Matt Hayden:
"I have seen God, he bats at no. 4 for India"

Peter Roebuck
"On a train from Shimla to Delhi, there was a halt in one of the stations. The train stopped by for
few minutes as usual. Sachin was nearing century, batting on 98. The passengers, railway
officials, everyone on the train waited for Sachin to complete the century. This Genius can stop
time in India!!"

Dennis Lillee

Best quotes on Sachin Tendulkar - Cricket - Cricket and Sports - MSN India Page 2 of 9

If I've to bowl to Sachin, I'll bowl with my helmet on. He hits the ball so hard.

Glenn McGrath
I still think Tendulkar is the best batsmen in the world ahead of Steve Waugh and Lara.

Brain Lara
Sachin is a genius. I'm a mere mortal.

Sir Don Bradman


I saw him playing on television and was struck by his technique, so I asked my wife to come look
at him. Now I never saw myself play, but I feel that this player is playing much the same as I
used to play, and she looked at him on Television and said yes, there is a similarity between the
two...hi compactness, technique, stroke production... it all seemed to gel! in reference to Sachin
Tendulkar.

Andy Flower:
"There are 2 kind of batsmen in the world. One Sachin Tendulkar. Two all the others."

Allan Donald:
"Sachin Tendulkar has often reminded me of a veteran army colonel who has
many medals on his chest to show how he has conquered bowlers all over the
world"

Sunil Gavaskar
India's fortune will depend on how many runs the little champion scores. There is no doubt
Tendulkar is the real thing.

Richie Benaud
He has defined cricket in his fabulous, impeccable manner. He is to batting what Shane Warne is
to bowling.

Geoffrey Boycott
Technically, you can't fault Sachin. Seam or spin, fast or slow nothing is a problem.

Greg Chappell
He is a perfectly balanced batsman and knows perfectly well when to attack and when to play
defensive cricket. He has developed the ability to treat bowlers all over the world with contempt
and can destroy any attack with utmost ease.

Shane Warne
I'll be going to bed having nightmares of Sachin just running down the wicket and belting me
back over the head for six. He was unstoppable. I don't think anyone, apart from Don Bradman,
is in the same class as Sachin Tendulkar. He is just an amazing player.

Viv Richards on Sachin Tendulkar


I think he is marvellous. I think he will fit in whatever category of Cricket that has been played or
will be played, from the first ball that has ever been bowled to the last ball that's going to be. He
can play in any era and at any level. I would say he's 99.5% perfect.

BBC Sports, on Sachin Tendulkar


Beneath the helmet, under that unruly curly hair, inside the cranium, there is something we don't
know, something beyond scientific measure. Something that allows him to soar, to roam a
territory of sport that, forget us, even those who are gifted enough to play alongside him cannot
even fathom. When he goes out to bat, people switch on their television sets and switch off their
lives.

Navjot Singh Sidhu:

Tendulkar par Ungli nahi utha Sakte.."

Barry Richards
Sachin is cricket's God!

Ian Chappell
Harder he works, the luckier he gets.

Anil Kumble
"I am fortunate that I've to bowl at him only in the nets!"

Andrew Symonds
"To Sachin, the man we all want to be"
What Symonds wrote on an aussie t-shirt he autographed specially for Sachin.

Mark Taylor:
"We did not lose to a team called India...we lost to a man called Sachin" -Mark Taylor, during the
test match in Chennai (1997)

Best quotes on Sachin Tendulkar - Cricket - Cricket and Sports - MSN India Page 7 of 9

Many Congratulations to our beloved Sachin! for having served India selflessly for 20+ years
and enduring the tsunamis of criticism when India lost a match. He however has been a
thorough sportsperson with the highest standards of morals, loyalties, enthusiasm, inspiration
and above all humbleness. Now lets stop judging Sachin and rate others with respect to him
(Theory of Relativity.....!), SACHIN =100.

If Sachin is playing it will be good for him and his family.Please do not praise him much.Its
counter productive game to India GDP itself.So many ordinary bread winners are sitting in
front of television without doing any work.Let Sachin pay them at the end of the day!.God
bless these people!!!.

I cant imagine an indain team without tendul. if it is the case i will stop watching cricket itself.
i wonder why many people are accusing him as not a match winner. Those who have brain
will never say like that. see cricket is not a single man game. you cannot win when only one
player is playing even at his best. take the last match in which tendul scored 175 against
aussies. he was the only batsman who brought team india near to the score. half the toal
number of runs were scored by him. what the hell other 10 guys were doing. could not they
score 18 runs from 18 balls after all hardwork put by that little genius.... shame on you people
for not understanding the game .... if a team looses even after a century by its member it
means the rest of the players did their work zero percent............. what do u want from
him.......... he alone has to score all the required runs in the match ........? he alone has to
take all the 10 wickets when he bowls..? and the rest wont do anything......? is it
so....................... let him do his game pls as long as he wish..this will be the only tribute we
can pay to him

Listen CPKji, you bird brained ****,Your Brains must surely be in your balls.Have you ever
realised that this man has selflessly served the game for 20 years and the amount of mental
pressure he had to shoulder while he played with traitors like Ajay Jadeja,Azzaruddin and god
knows how many others who were allegedly tanking matches for money.He shouldered the
nations aspirations fully aware that people within the team wanted india to loose.Had Sachin
been a part of the present Indian team,which i believe is much cleaner and more disciplined
now, right from the start of his career,India would have won at least 3 more world cups

Besides the innumerable runs he has scored,the sheer joy which he has given all these years
is beyond compare.He will surely be called the best ever batsman in the years to come.He has
played on all sorts of surfaces,against all sorts of attacks,in all forms of cricket,be it test or
one day,he has stood his ground and place i.e. no. 1. All the opposition teams have planned
and replanned and are still planning but they reach only upto his broad blade and are struck
back ferociously.Above all the way he carries himself is exemplary and should be learnt by
every other person.
May God give him what he wishes, he has done his job to the fullest.
