Quotes on Sachin Tendulkar

"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 Cricket God Sachin Tendulkar. He is just an amazing player"
- Shane Warne.

"Sachin is cricket's God"
- Barry Richards
"Don't bowl him bad balls, he hits the good ones for fours."
- Michael Kasprowicz
You have to decide for yourself whether you're bowling well or not. He's going to hit you for fours and sixes anyway. Kasprowicz has a superior story. During the Bangalore Test, frustrated, he went to Dennis Lillee and asked, "Mate, do you see any weaknesses?" Lillee replied, "No Michael, as long as you walk off with your pride that's all you can do"
- Shane Warne
"You take Don Bradman away and he is next up I reckon."
- Steve Waugh
"I'd like to see him go out and bat one day with a stump. I tell you, he'd do okay"
- Greg Chappell
"If I've to bowl to Sachin, I'll bowl with my helmet on. He hits the ball so hard"
- Dennis Lillee
"I have seen God. He bats at number 4 for India"
- Mathew Hayden
"He's 99.5 percent perfect"
- Viv Richards
"Cricketers like Sachin come once in a lifetime, and I am privileged he played in my time"
- Wasim Akram
"Sachin Tendulkar is a genius. I'm a mere mortal"
- Brian Lara
"He's a phenomenon. We have to be switched on when he plays allow him no boundries, for then he doesn't stop"
- Mark Taylor
"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
"When Tendulkar goes out to bat, it is beyond chaos - it's a frantic appeal by a nation to one man"
- Mathew Hayden
"You have to watch India in India truly to appreciate the pressure that Sachin Tendulkar is under every time he bats. Outside grounds, people wait until he goes in before paying to enter. They seem to want a wicket to fall even though it is their own side that will suffer"
- Shane Warne
