Sachin Tendulkar is the greatest batsman of his generation, and arguably the greatest batsman of all time.
He has scored more runs and centuries than any other batsman in history, in both ODI and test cricket, and he is the only player to have scored 100 international centuries.
In his home counrty, India, Tendulkar is idolised. Throughout his career he has been mobbed like a movie star wherever he goes, and his presence can often be the difference between a half-empty ground and a total sell out. When Tendulkar plays, India comes to a standstill.
His technique is compact and simple, yet he can play every shot in the book. In addition to his unflappable mentality, his greatest strength is the fact that he has no true weakness. He has an astonishing cricketing brain, and where bowlers will often find a chink in a batsman's armour, if Tendulkar comes close to being dismissed you will very rarely see him make the same mistake again to the same bowler.
He is the most successful batsman of all time, and unquestionably one of the world's greatest ever sportsmen....
