“Nothing bad can happen to us if we’re on a plane in India with Sachin

Sachin Tendulkar that you lose focus on your job.”

“To Sachin, the man we all want to be”
- What Andrew Symonds wrote on an aussie t-shirt he autographed specially
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 TV sets and switch off their
lives “ BBC on Sachin
But the finest compliment must be that bookmakers would not fix the odds -
or a game – until Tendulkar was out.

Sachin is a genius. I’m a mere mortal.
“We did not lose to a team called India… we lost to a man called Sachin”
- Mark Taylor, during the test match in Chennai (1997)
“The more I see of him the more confused I’m getting to which is his best
“The joy he brings to the millions of his countrymen, the grace with which
he handles all the adulation and the expectations and his innate humility -
all make for a one-in-a-billion individual,”
“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,”

“Even my father’s name is Sachin Tendulkar.”

KUMBLE : I am fortunate that I’ve to bowl at him only in the nets!
quoting Shahrukh from an interview
Que: Who do you think as most important celebrity ? Shahrukh: There was a
big party where stars from bollywood and cricket were invited. Suddenly,

SACHIN ‘ that quiet defines Sachin-The greatest.
Sachin Tendulkar has often reminded me of a veteran army colonel who has
many medals on his chest to show how he has conquered bowlers all over the
world – Allan Donald
And i remember reading in one of Allan Donald’s interview. This interview
was in Cricket Talk and 7-8 yrs ago.
I was bowling to Sachin and he hit me for two fours in a row. One from
point and the other in between point and gully. That was the last two balls
of the over and the over after that we (SA) took a wicket and during the
group meeting i told Jonty (Rhodes) to be alert and i know a way to pin
Sachin. And i delivered the first ball of my next over and it was a fuller
length delivery outside offstump. And i shouted catch. To my astonishment
the ball was hit to the cover boundary. Such was the brilliance of Sachin.
His reflex time is the best i have ever seen. Its like 1/20th of a sec. To
get his wicket better not prepare. Atleast u wont regret if he hits you for

On a train from Shimla to Delhi, there was a halt in one of the stations.
The train stopped by for few minutes as usual. Sachin was nearing century,
batting on 98. The passengers, railway officials, everyone on the train
waited for Sachin to complete the century. This Genius can stop time in

This was when he was accused of ball tempering
“Sachin cannot cheat. He is to cricket what (Mahatma) Gandhiji was to
politics. It’s clear discrimination. ”
There are 2 kind of batsmen in the world. One Sachin Tendulkar. Two all
@Mayank Gupta -
Well, we all know that Sachin has achieved what no one else can ever do achieve in their entire life! And I’m too little to say anything about him. I just know one thing… my whole life will be complete the day I will be able to meet him and shake hands with him once!
