22 07 2009

lil masterHere are a few pickings from the cricketers around the world on the lord of cricket in India(where cricket is a religion) – Sachin Tendulkar


1)”Sachin is cricket’s God”
– Barry Richards


2)”I have seen God. He bats at number 4 for India”
– Mathew Hayden

3)”Sachin Tendulkar is a genius. I’m a mere mortal”
– Brian Lara

4)”When Tendulkar goes out to bat, it is beyond chaos – it’s a frantic appeal by a nation to one man”
– Mathew Hayden

5)”There are only two kind of cricketers in the whole of world : one sachin tendulkar & one – all other cricketers out there.”
-Andy Flower

6)”Don’t bowl him bad balls, he hits the good ones for fours.”
– Michael Kasprowicz

7)”You have to decide for yourself whether you’re bowling well or not. He’s going to hit you for fours and sixes anyway. Kasprowicz has a superior story. During the Bangalore Test, frustrated, he went to Dennis Lillee and asked, “Mate, do you see any weaknesses?” Lillee replied, “No Michael, as long as you walk off with your pride that’s all you can do”
– Shane Warnebradman-tendulker-warne









8)”In an over I can bowl six different balls. But then Sachin looks at me with a sort of gentle arrogance down the pitch as if to say ‘Can you bowl me another one?'”
– Adam Hollioke

9)”Paul Strang: “What we (Zimbabwe) need is 10 Tendulkars.”
-Paul Strang

10)young(1989)(250)“Today, he showed the world why he is considered the best batsman around. Some of the shots he played were simply amazing. Earlier, opposing teams used to feel that Sachin’s dismissal meant they could win the game. Today, I feel that the Indian players, too, feel this way.”
– Wasim Akram
11)”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.”
– BBC Sports, on Sachin Tendulkar

12)”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, 1999SYdneySachin
