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...high compactness, technique, stroke production... it all seemed to gel!
- Sir Don Bradman in reference to Sachin Tendulkar.
 

India's fortune will depend on how many runs the little champion scores. There is no doubt Tendulkar is the real thing.
- Sunil Gavaskar

Sachin is cricket's God!
- Barry Richards


Harder he works, the luckier he gets.
- Ian Chappell

Technically, you can't fault Sachin. Seam or spin, fast or slow nothing is a problem.
- Geoffrey Boycott

He is Sachin Tendulkar. I hope he stays Sachin Tendulkar. We need a new player, a player in his own way. He has a technique which is the hallmark of a great player. Everything indicates that he will be a great player and I am sure he will prove me right. Reminds me of Barry Richards.
- Eddie Barlow

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.
- Greg Chappell

Technically he stands out as the best because of his ability to increase the pace at will.
- David Boon
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.
- Shane Warne
 

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.
- Viv Richards on Sachin Tendulkar

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.
- Wasim Akram

Beneath the helmet, under that unruly curly hair, inside the cranium, there is something we don't know, something beyond scientific measure. Something that allows him to soar, to roam a territory of sport that, forget us, even those who are gifted enough to play alongside him cannot even fathom. When he goes out to bat, people switch on their television sets and switch off their lives.
- BBC Sports, on Sachin Tendulkar


I was fielding in the covers Tendulkar came out to bat in his debut Test at Karachi. I still remember Waqar Younis was at his peak form at that time. Tendulkar tried to drive Waqar through the covers off his very first ball in Test cricket but was beaten all ends up. But I walked to captain Imran Khan and told him 'this kid looks very good' and Imran agree with me.

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.
- Sir Garfield Sobers

In terms of technique and compactness, Tendulkar is the best.
- Desmond Haynes

If I've to bowl to Sachin, I'll bowl with my helmet on. He hits the ball so hard.

I still think Tendulkar is the best batsmen in the world ahead of Steve Waugh and Lara.
- Glenn McGrath

A complete batsman — he's the best in the business.
- Mohinder Amarnath
What we (Zimbabwe) need is 10 Tendulkars.
- Paul Strang
 

Sometime back I had written a piece that said that Sachin's the master and Lara a genius with his head high up somewhere. That's it!
- Peter Roebuck
  



Sachin is an attacker. He has much more power than Sunny. He wants to be the one to set the pace. He has to be on top. That's the buzz about him.
- Jeff Thompson

Tendulkar is the most complete batsman I have stood behind. I saw the hundred in Perth on a bouncy pitch with Hughes, McDermott and Whitney gunning for him he only had 60-odd when No 11 came in. I've seen him against Warne too.
- Ian Healy

Don't bowl him bad balls, he hits the good ones for fours.
- Michael Kasprowicz

Sachin's the best. I've had this view since I saw him score that hundred in Sydney in 1992. He's the most composed batsman I've ever seen.
- Mike Coward

The pressure on me is nothing as 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
- Mark Waugh

Sachin is a genius. I'm a mere mortal.

His life seems to be a stillness in a frantic world... [When he goes out to bat], it is beyond chaos - it is a frantic appeal by a nation to one man. The people see him as a God...
- Mathew Hayden, on Sachin Tendulkar

It was one of the greatest innings I have ever seen. There is no shame being beaten by such a great player, Sachin is perhaps only next to the Don.
- Steve Waugh

Hell, if he had stayed, even at 11 an over he would have got it.
- Allan Border (after India won the Coca-Cola cup in Sharjah)

You might pitch a ball on the off stump and think you have bowled a good ball and he walks across and hits it for two behind midwicket. His bat looks so heavy but he just waves it around like it's a toothpick.
- Brett Lee, on Sachin Tendulkar’s batting, 1999

Sachin Tendulkar is, in my time, the best player without doubt - daylight second, Brian Lara third
- Shane Warne expresses his views on batting greats of this era

- Tennis legend Martina Navratilova joins the Sachin Tendulkar fan club after watching him bat at Sydney

The archives recall not one single incriminating incident, not one drunken escapade, not one reported affair, not one spat with a team-mate or reporter. Throughout, he has maintained his professional integrity, tailoring his game to the demands of the situation and the team, always giving the game and his craft due care and attention. Is he human?

Playing in the same team as Sachin is a huge honor. His balance of mind, shrewd judgment, modesty and, above all, his technical brilliance make him my all-time hero... You can't get a more complete cricketer than Sachin. He has everything that a cricketer needs to have.

As a batsman, he has the technique, the hunger and the desire for runs. He always contributes with the bat as well as on the field. He also is a good fielder and bowls when needs. You really can't ask for a better cricketer than Sachin... He is a terrific person and has handled pressure brilliantly. He has handled his success very well and doesn't have any airs about him. He is a great guy and very good team man. In his heart of hearts, he is a very simple and down to earth person.
