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?'
I have delayed my shoots many times to watch Sachin bat.
Sachin Tendulkar means more to India than I do.
* To Sachin, the man we all want to be.
I can be hundred per cent sure that Sachin will not play for a minute longer when he is not enjoying himself. He is still so eager to go out there and play. He will play as long as he feels he can play.
Putting Sachin Tendulkar's latest feat in a strictly cricketing context would not be fair to the sportsman. His achievements in the world of cricket need to be seen on a par with efforts in any other field - science, art, literature, etc - to push the frontiers of human excellence.
I know that the new ball is due, but I am saving it for that "Chotu" (Sachin) who is coming next.
Test cricket is bloody hard work, especially when you've got Sachin batting with what looks like a three-metre-wide bat.
Sachin Tendulkar is, in my time, the best player without doubt - daylight second, Brian Lara third.
I didn’t see Don but to me, in all my years associated with the game, I haven’t seen a better batsman than Sachin Tendulkar.viv Richards
“The last time I watched Sachin was last week when he was on his way to a spectacular 175 and once again I felt that I was watching a player who comes but once in a century. It can be said that he is the Bradman of our times and I do feel privileged to have played a lot of cricket against him,”
