Super Sachin & Team India complete an eventful year

New Delhi, Dec 29 (PTI) Numbers alone can never define a legend called Sachin Tendulkar. Yet it's difficult to do away with number crunchers when you talk of a legend whose only competitor over the years has been he himself.

2010 will definitely be an year which will be be etched in the memories of cricket crazy Indians for two of the most astonishing feats in world cricket.

The first man to score a double hundred in one-dayers -- the moment Tendulkar steered South African pacer Charl Langeveldt for a single, a new chapter in Indian cricket unfolded at the Captain Roop Singh Stadium in Gwalior.

But the maestro never stops from creating a higher benchmark for himself which elevates him to a different pedestal --- many notches above his peers.

Former Pakistan cricketers shower praise on Tendulkar


Pakistan’s former Test players showered lot of praise on Indian batting icon Sachin Tendulkar for becoming the first man to score 50 Test hundreds. “Tendulkar can now rightly lay claim to the title of being the greatest batsman in cricket history,” said former captain Rashid Latif.“And if some people argue about his greatness then there are certainly no arguments about his being the most prolific, he is a complete run machine and his 50th Test hundred is a testimony of his endurance and passion for the sport,” Rashid added.

Another former captain Javed Miandad, who played in the Test match at Karachi in 1989 in which Tendulkar made his debut, said he was happy for Tendulkar.

“It was clear to us even when he walked out to bat in that Test as a teenager that he had talent. The fact that he has been around for 21 years and done justice to that god gifted talent in both forms of the game is an achievement any cricketer would be proud off,” Miandad who played 124 Tests, said.Miandad also said he didn’t see Tendulkar’s record of 50 Test hundreds being broken by anyone in the future.

“It would be very difficult for anyone to reach this pinnacle of Test cricket.”Pakistan’s Hanif Muhammad who would turn 76 tomorrow paid the tribute to the veteran batsman, saying that he make it a point to watch cricket when Tendulkar was batting in Test matches.“I try to watch the matches in which he is playing because I have not seen anyone gifted with such natural technical batting excellence, which he has combined with his hardwork and commitment. He is indeed a phenomena and a role model for every young batsman,” Hanif said.

Former Pakistani wicketkeeper and captain Moin Khan said he had played a lot against Tendulkar and he admired his competitiveness and hunger for runs.

“He was always competitive but also polite on the field and I think he is the role model for young cricketers. He also highlights the fact that as long as a player has passion for cricket and confidence in his skills and is fit, age is never a barrier in international cricket,” Moin said.Former Pakistan batsman and selector Shoaib Muhammad, who played in Tendulkar’s debut Test, said the champion batsman had achieved phenomenal success because he really worked hard on his batting and fitness and was someone who had the ability to score anywhere in the world.

Shoaib described Tendulkar as the most complete batsman of his time, and arguably the biggest cricket icon as well.“I have watched him play all these years closely and his batting is still so pure based on perfect balance and little movement and precision in strokes,” Shoaib said.
“I think there is a lesson in this new world record for every batsman about how important it is to maintain consistency in your game even after so many years in international cricket,” he said.Former Test pacer Jalaluddin advised the Pakistani batsmen to learn a lesson from Tendulkar’s technique and achievements and bring a more consistent approach to their batting.

“I think every country wants to have a batsman like Tendulkar. But such a player come only once in decades. His greatness is he has realised the responsibility on him to keep on scoring runs for India and to break record after record,” Jalaluddin noted.

Former Test batsman Basit Ali pointed out that India had produced many world class batsmen but none of them could match the perseverance and hunger for runs shown by Tendulkar.

“It is true that players now get more matches to play in their career but it takes a lot of hardwork to keep going for 21 years and keep on scoring runs in tons which he has done,” Basit said

Tendulkar's adaptability makes him better than Bradman: Dhoni


DURBAN: Iconic batsman Sachin Tendulkar's ability to adapt to the pressures of modern day cricket makes him better than Australian cricket legend Don Bradman, feels India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

Dhoni, who faced a barrage of questions from mediapersons about these two batting legends on the eve of the second Test against South Africa in Durban, also said that he doesn't like any comparisons to be drawn between the two."There is no doubt that both are brilliant batsmen, but Sachin has been around for two decades, the best in the world and had moreover throughout his career could adapt even with the demands of one-day cricket and more recently the Twenty20 version," the skipper was quoted as saying by the South African daily 'The Beeld' on Friday.

"I do not like comparisons between Sachin and Don because they played in different eras," said Dhoni.Tendulkar is the leading run maker in the history of Test cricket with 14,513 runs in 175 Tests. He recently completed 50 centuries in Tests at the Super Sport Park in the first Test against South Africa at Centurion.

Bradman, who died in 2001 at the age of 92, holds the record of the best batting average of 99.94 in 52 Tests.Dhoni said Tendulkar's presence is still an incentive for each of his teammates."He's the kind of guy who get the best out of whoever he bats," said Dhoni.

"I was on the other side of the pitch when he earlier this year struck that 200 not out against South Africa in Gwalior in a one-day game," said the captain.

Australian poll says Sachin better than Bradman


Ten years ago, when India toured Australia, many Aussies including cricketers had said Rahul Dravid was a better player than Sachin. Today, as the Master Blaster scales one peak after another, the world is standing up to salute him. Even the Aussies are. The big change. They are saying he is even better than the great Sir Don Bradman!

Tendulkar in front on online poll on who’s greater - he or Don

Sachin Tendulkar has beaten Sir Don Bradman and that too on the Australian soil. No, we are not kidding. This is what the respondents to an online poll conducted by a leading Australian daily feel. In an online poll in 'Sydney Morning Herald' asking to vote for 'The greatest batsman ever: Bradman or Tendulkar?, 20748 cricket fans voted and Tendulkar got a staggering 67% of the votes while Sir Don finished with 33%.

This is absolutely incredible since such a poll was conducted in Australia for the first time and the responses are set to reignite the debate as to who is the greatest cricketer of all time. A write up in the newspaper said many people asked if the comparison between the Little Master and the Don was fair considering they played in different eras."His (Tendulkar's) legend grows ever larger. And having become the first man to score 50 Test centuries, Tendulkar has reignited debate about who is the greatest batsman ever. Is it India's 37-year-old Little Master, or Australia's late, great Sir Donald Bradman? Or is it even fair or realistic to compare these two men from very different eras?," cricket writer Daniel Lewis asked.

Question 
Sachin’s ODI 200 in Time magazine’s ‘Top 10 moments’


In the last couple of weeks, Sachin Tendulkar has quietly made his big contribution to making cricket a global game. After first getting nominated to the prestigious Laureus Awards, where cricket over the years has struggled to enjoy presence, the Little Master now finds himself in yet another envious list. His majestic ODI double hundred is featured in Time magazine

Sachin’s ODI 200 in Time magazine’s ‘Top 10 moments’

Iconic Indian batsman Sachin Tendulkar's record-breaking one-day International double century has found a place in the Time magazine's top 10 sports moments of the year. "Certain sports milestones seem simply unreachable: In cricket, it's the one-day double-hundred: no man had ever produced 200 runs for his team during a one-day international match," 'The Times' said.

"In February, however, India's Sachin Tendulkar, the greatest run scorer of all-time, hit the magic milestone against a powerful South African squad. Tendulkar smacked three "sixes" -- the cricket equivalent of a home run -- during his epic performance, and the build up to 200 was exhilarating.

"When he reached 199, the home crowd in Gwalior waved Indian flags, and roared, knowing they were about to witness history. The diminutive Tendulkar, dubbed "The Little Master," slapped a single past the South African fielders. The world's 1.5 billion cricket fans had a moment they'd never forget," it said.

Question 
Sachin won't retire till he wins World Cup: Kapil


At 37, Sachin Tendulkar is definitely at the twilight of his career but the former India captain Kapil Dev thinks otherwise as he feels the champion batsman will carry on to play another World Cup unless India lay its hands on next year's quadrennial event.

Sachin won't retire till he wins World Cup: Kapil

Kapil, India's only World Cup winning skipper, said that if not for injury, Tendulkar will be a great asset to the Indian team in the mega-event."I feel talking about Sachin (Tendulkar) is an insult to him. He is such an important personal not only for India but for the world cricket. His performance gives strength to the team. He brings in abundance of experience in the team," Kapil said during a promotional event for the 2011 World Cup here on Thursday.

"Sachin is one player who brings crowd on to the ground. People say it is his last World Cup but I don't believe in this. We might see him play the next World Cup also. I feel until and unless he wins the trophy, he won't go," added India's 1983 World Cup-winning captain.Since making his debut way back in 1989, Tendulkar has so far featured in five World Cups for India but the trophy has eluded him on all occasions with the closest being a runners-up finish in the 2003 edition of the tournament in South Africa.

And with age not on Tendulkar's side, next year's mega-event in the sub-continent might be his last World Cup.

And legendary West Indian Sir Vivian Richards said that the World Cup trophy would be the fitting farewell to the iconic batsman.

"That (the World Cup trophy) would be the icing on the cake for the man (Tendulkar)," Richards said.

Tendulkar is today's Bradman, says Brian Lara


The comparisons between Sachin Tendulkar and Don Bradman started almost as soon as the Indian batting genius hit the field as a precocious teenager.

Tendulkar is today's Bradman, says Brian Lara

Yet, as long as Brian Lara was on the field, there was always a nagging doubt, whether the great West Indian was somehow better. The tongues had really started wagging when Sachin suffered the tennis elbow injury and some had the temerity to question whether he deserved to retain his place in Team India.

However, now we are getting the news from the horse's mouth himself - Lara has said that Sachin is the Bradman of today.While Lara may have bowed out from any comparisons involving himself he did however, put them (Sachin and Bradman) in different categories -to keep the fans guessing!Saluting the longevity of Sachin Tendulkar, West Indies great Brian Lara has described the Indian batting legend as the 'Don Bradman' of modern era but refused to compare the icons of different eras.

Lara, himself a legendary left-handed batsman from the Caribbean, said what astonishes him the most about Tendulkar is his longevity.
