1. 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.

Commit all your sins when Sachin is batting. They will go unnoticed cause even the GOD is watching
3. Mathew Hayden
“I have seen God, he bats at no. 4 for India”
4. Dennis Lillee
If I’ve to bowl to Sachin, I’ll bowl with my helmet on. He hits the ball so hard.
5. Andy Flower
There are 2 kind of batsmen in the world. One Sachin Tendulkar. Two all the others..
6. Shane Warne
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.
7. Brian Lara
Sachin Tendulkar is a genius. I’m a mere mortal
8. Sunil Gavaskar
India’s fortune will depend on how many runs the little champion scores. There is no doubt Tendulkar is the real thing.
9. Michael Kasprowicz
Don’t bowl him bad balls, he hits the good ones for fours

Tuzhe pata hai tune kiska catch chhoda hai?
