The Aussies were asked to describe India’s batting maestro and arguably the greatest cricketer ever, Sachin Tendulkar. Turn by turn, the Aussies shared their experiences about Sachin Tendulkar and praised the little master. From Ricky Ponting to David Warner, the Aussies described the genius of Sachin Tendulkar in their own ways.
Australian captain Michael Clarke described Sachin Tendulkar as “there has no been greater player in my time”.

“He is just all class. His defense is so strong. But the thing that really stands out to me is that he can hit the same ball to about five different places around the ground for four., I remember we were playing in India and Nathan Hauritz was bowling. Hauritz was bowling exactly the same line and he hit over the mdi-wicket for six, one over covers for a six, he lapped one down to fine-leg for a four and then he worked one off his pads to square leg for a four. For a bowler that is pretty hard to bowl at,” Hussey said.
Australia’s swashbuckling batsman David Warner said Sachin is a very inspirational person and he is one of the greats of the game.
He is the master of cricket. The way he goes about his game is unbelievable. He is always very relaxed and obviously, he is one of the greats of the game, Warner said.
“He is always doing work the community and as a person he is very inspirational,” Warner added.
The Aussies are not known for their kind comments about their counterparts, but when it comes to a genius like Sachin Tendulkar, even the Aussies can’t stop themselves from praising the little master.
Sachin Tendulkar has retired from the game of cricket, but his genius will always have a special place in the hearts of millions of cricket fans across the world.
