A cricketer's life is a life of splendid freedom, healthy effort, endless variety, and delightful good fellowship.
India's fortune will depend on how many runs the little champion scores. There is no doubt Tendulkar is the real thing.
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.
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.
Sachin was so focused. He never looked like getting out. He was batting with single-minded devotion. It was truly remarkable. It was a lesson.
He can play that leg glance with a walking stick also.
The thing I like the most about Sachin is his intensity. After being in the game for so long, he still has the same desire to do well for India in any international match. I tell you what, this man is a legend.
He has defined cricket in his fabulous, impeccable manner. He is to batting what Shane Warne is to bowling.
I have watched a lot of Tendulkar and we have spoken to each other a lot. He has it in him to be among the very best.
When Viv Richards retired I thought it was end of entertainment. But then came Sehwag,the King of entertainment!
To me, cricket is a simple game. Keep it simple and just go out and play.
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.
Dravid Could play attacking cricket like me but i could never play like him
Cricket is a pressure game, and when it comes to an India-Pakistan match the pressure is doubled.
Sehwag is the most unpredictable batsman i have ever seen in my career
India me aap Prime Minister ko ek baar katghare me khada kar sakte hain. Par Sachin Tendulkar par ungli nahi utha Sakte.
There are 2 kind of batsmen in the world. One Sachin Tendulkar. Two all the others
I have to learn from Sehwag how to play in the nervous 90's
Cricket civilizes people and creates good gentlemen. I want everyone to play cricket in Zimbabwe; I want ours to be a nation of gentlemen.
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.
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.
Nothing bad can happen to us if we were on a plane in India with Sachin Tendulkar on it.
When you bowl at him you are not just trying to get him out, you are trying to impress him. "I want him to walk off thinking 'that Flintoff, he's all right isn't he?" I feel privileged to have played against him.
I've seen God. He bats at No. 4 for India in tests
Sachin Tendulkar has carried the burden of the nation for 21 years. It is time we carried him on our shoulders
