What other Cricketers said about Sachin

This is what the greatest of the cricketers said about him :

  • You know genius when you see it, and let me tell you, Sachin is pure genius. - Brian Lara 
  • "During our team meetings, we often speak about the importance of the first 12 balls to Tendulkar. If you get him then you can thank your stars, otherwise it could mean that tough times lie ahead." - Allan Donald
  • 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... high compactness, technique, stroke production... It all seemed to gel! - Sir Donald Bradman
  • In the early years, especially around the mid 90s, I had this feeling you could play around on his ego and get him out. He believed he could attack bowlers at any time and anyone who could bowl maidens to him stood a good chance. Things are of course different now. - Erapalli Anantharao Srinivas Prasanna 
  • He has been in form longer than some of our guys have been alive. - Daniel Vettori 
  • If he is not the best then I want to see the best. - David Shepherd 
  • The joy he brings to the millions of his countrymen, the grace with which he handles all the adulation and the expectations and his innate humility - all make for a one-in-a-billion individual. - Glenn McGrath 
  • He is GOD of CRICKET - V V R Jagan
  • For cricket, Sachin is Maradona and Pele put together. Cricket will be a poorer sport when he quits the game. He is the first name that comes to mind the moment you ask who is the greatest. - Allan Donald
  • You might pitch a ball on the off stump and think you have bowled a good ball and he walks across and hits it for two behind mid wicket. His bat looks so heavy but he just waves it around like it's a toothpick. - Brett Lee 
  • There are 2 kind of batsmen in the world. One Sachin Tendulkar. Two all the others. - Andy Flower 
  • In terms of technique and compactness, Tendulkar is the best. - Desmond Haynes 
  • First and foremost, Tendulkar is an entertainer and that for me is as important factor as any fact or figure. Too often boring players have been pushed forward as great by figures alone. For sheer entertainment, he will keep cricket alive. - Barry Richards 
  • "I have delayed my shoots many times to watch Sachin bat" - Amitabh Bachchan 
  • If I'm to bowl to Sachin, I will bowl with my helmet on. He hits the ball so hard. - Dennis Lillee 
  • I'll always remember Sachin as a quality cricketer, one of the best of all time. - Glenn McGrath 
  • Sachin is a genius. I'm a mere mortal. - Brian Lara 
  • We'd heard all about him modelling himself on Sunil Gavaskar, and he had the same neatness, the same time to spare, the same calmness - and a very heavy bat. - Allan Donald
  • He is cricket's greatest role model and continues to provide a great example for young aspiring cricketers on how to conduct oneself throughout one's career. - Gary Kirsten 
  • Nothing bad can happen to us if we're on a plane in India with Sachin Tendulkar on it. - Hashim Amla as he boards a flight. 
  • I had to remind Gary Kristen often that he was in the covers to field against Sachin not to applaud him. - Hansie Cronje 
  • For Sachin the balance is there. He is quick to complete his shot. He covers the crease much better than mere mortals. - David Gower 
  • 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. - Greg Chappell 
  • Tendulkar is the best in the world at the moment. Why I've always liked him is that batsmen tend to be negative at times and I think batting is not about not getting out - it is to play positively. I think you got to take it to the bowlers and Sachin is one such player. When you do so, you change the game, you change bowlers because they suddenly start bowling badly because they are under pressure. - Graeme Pollock
