Sachin Tendulkar


Often referred to as The Little Master or The Master Blaster, is an Indian cricketer widely regarded as the greatest batsmen in the history of cricket.
Sachin Tendulkar
His shot selection is superb, he just lines you up and can make you look very silly. Everything is right in his technique and judgement. There isn't a fault there. He is also a lovely guy, and over the years I've enjoyed some interesting chats with him… Sachin is in a different class to Lara as a professional cricketer. He is a model cricketer, and despite the intolerable pressures he faces back home, he remains a really nice guy… Sachin is also the best batsman in the world, pulling away from Brain Lara every year...
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.
Tendulkar quotes
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.
Tendulkar
The pressure on me is nothing compared to Sachin Tendulkar. Sachin, like God, must never fail. The crowd always expects him to succeed and it is too much pressure on him. But, he rarely disappoints them.




Tendulkar Sachin quotes
Cricketers like Sachin come once in a lifetime, and I am privileged he played in my time.
Tendulkar Sachin
I know that the new ball is due, but I am saving it for that "Chotu" (Sachin) who is coming next.
Sachin Tendulkar quotes
When people throw stones at you, you turn them into milestones.
Sachin Tendulkar
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!
Tendulkar Sachin quotes
If I'm to bowl to Sachin, I will bowl with my helmet on. He hits the ball so hard.
Tendulkar
Tujhe pata hai tune kiska catch chhoDa hai?
Tendulkar Sachin
You take Don Bradman away and he is next up, I reckon.
Sachin Tendulkar
What we (Zimbabwe) need is 10 Tendulkars.




Sachin Tendulkar quotes
To Sachin, the man we all want to be.
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.
Tendulkar quotes
The thing I admire most about this man is his poise. The way he moves, elegantly without ever looking out of place in any condition or company, suggests his pedigree. I remember he had once come to New Delhi in the 1990s to collect his Arjuna Award (India's highest award to its top sportspersons) and he asked me if I would attend the function. He is a very sensitive human being...
Sometimes you feel he really hasn't felt the kind of competition in the world his talent deserves. I would have loved to see him perform against top quality cricketers of the previous generation. It would really have brought out the best in him.
Tendulkar Sachin
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.
Tendulkar Sachin quotes
I never coached Sachin Tendulkar, I gave him gentle advice when he asked for it.
Sachin Tendulkar
"He continues to give more than 100 per cent and his schoolboy-like enthusiasm for the game is something I envy and admire. For the team he is the best available coaching manual."
Sachin Tendulkar quotes
When Sachin Tendulkar travelled to Pakistan to face one of the finest bowling attacks ever assembled in cricket, Michael Schumacher was yet to race a F1 car, Lance Armstrong had never been to the Tour de France, Diego Maradona was still the captain of a world champion Argentina team, Pete Sampras had never won a Grand Slam.
Sachin Tendulkar
His mind is like a computer. He stores data on bowlers and knows where they are going to pitch the ball.
Tendulkar Sachin
I will forever remember Sachin as one of the greatest players of the game. In fact, it is something I look forward to telling my grandchildren in the future -- that I played against one of my childhood heroes. He has been one of the greatest cricketers ever and it has been a privilege playing with him and against him. It can surely rank as one of my cherished cricketing memories.
