Sachin Tendulkar is the best batsman since Bradman: Richie Benaud

Former Australia captain and legendary cricket commentator Richie Benaud has died at the age of 84. Benaud took 945 wickets in 259 first-class matches and made 11,719 first-class runs, scoring 23 centuries at an average of 36.50. But he perhaps became best known as a commentator, enjoying a long association with the BBC following his first radio appearance for the corporation in 1960.

Benaud was the first man to achieve 2,000 runs and 200 wickets at Test level. He was also a highly regarded tactician and never lost a Test series as Australia captain, winning five and drawing two. After such an impressive playing career, he became even better known as a prolific author, columnist and commentator on cricket.

In this video, Richie Benaud says that Sachin Tendulkar is the greatest batsman after since the great Sir Don Bradman.
