Some Excellent Quotes on SACHIN TENDULKAR


Excellent Quotes on SACHIN TENDULKAR

Virendra Sehwag:

Both of us have come a long away and it is a great honour that Tendulkar thinks I come close to resembling him as a batsman. It is a great honour, like a dream come true. If I die tomorrow I'll be the happiest man because I played this game because of Tendulkar, and Tendulkar himself saying that I resemble him - there is no bigger compliment than that.


Ravi Shashtri:

He is someone sent from up there to play cricket and go back.


Barry Richards:

Sachin is crickets GOD


Martin Crowe:

The shot played on this ball is only possible for the GOD of cricket.


Paul Strang:

What we [zimbabwe] need is 10 Tendulkars.


Shane Warne:

I would go to bed having nightmares of Sachin dancing down the ground and hitting me for sixes.


Mathew Hayden:

His life seems to be a stillness in a frantic world... [When he goes out to bat], it is beyond chaos - it is a frantic appeal by a nation to one man. The people see him as a God...


Dennis Lillie:

If I had to bowl to Sachin I would bowl with a halmet on. He hits the ball so hard.


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.


Michael Kasprowicz:

Don't bowl him bad balls, he hits the good ones for fours."


Brett Lee:

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 midwicket. His bat looks so heavy but he just waves it around like it's a toothpick. Brett Lee, on Sachin Tendulkar's batting, 1999


Richie Benaud:

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


Abdul Qadir:

I Was fielding in the covers Tendulkar came out to bat in his debut Test at Karachi. I still remember Waqar Younis was at his peak form at that time. Tendulkar tried to drive Waqar through the covers off his very first ball in Test cricket but was beaten all ends up. But I walked to captain Imran Khan and told him 'this kid looks very good' and Imran agree with me.


Navjot Sidhu:

"His mind is like a computer. He stores data on bowlers and knows where they are going to pitch the ball."


Ricky Ponting:

“Sachin is the most complete batsman I have seen. His technique is so good and he has played well in all conditions. To have 41 one-day international tons shows what an appetite he has for scoring runs.”


Last but not the LEAST…

If Sachin plays well..India sleeps well
