"Tendulkar got better and better with each passing year
and today he is the most frightening batsman as far as
bowlers across the world are concerned."

"He is often spoken about in the same breath as Brian Lara,
but as far as I am concerned, the comparison does not even
begin. Lara is not half as consistent as Tendulkar and
lacks the discipline of the latter."

"A whole nine years elapsed after his debut before I saw Tendulkar
in Tests. That century in Chennai was an exhibition of batting of
the highest order and many team mates of mine feel that it is the
best Test innings they have ever seen."

"Interestingly, I did not witness either innings, but many
of my team mates did swear that it was batsmanship of the
highest quality -- high praise for a bloke who had not celebrated
his 20th birthday." (About the Perth & Sydney knocks)

"I have never made a secret of the fact that I rate Tendulkar the
best batsman in the business. As far as I am concerned he is technically
the most sound player I have ever bowled to."

"But Tendulkar possesses determination, a good eye and has
a very high rate of consistency as far as centuries go. This puts him
on top of my list along with Waugh. Mind you, Steve is at the top
by virtue of his performances in the last nine years, that is between
age 28 and 37. Tendulkar has just entered that phase of his career."
