There will not be another Sachin Tendulkar - Shane Warne

The legendary Australian spinner Shane Warne said in the “Daily Telegraph” that Sachin Tendulkar is the best batsman of his time and it’s difficult, may be almost impossible for the emergence of another such player in coming near future. 

Shane Warne, who holds the record for 2nd highest wicket taker in test cricket, has been specially invited to be part of the final and 200th Test match to be played in Mumbai from 14th Nov 2013 by the Little Master.

Shane Warne wrote, “There will not be another Sachin Tendulkar. I always teach young players that cricket is not about averages even if it is a stats-based game. It is about how and when you score runs or take wickets. The great players deliver when the team is up against it and statistics do not tell you the truth about such things. Sachin is far more than a man with great numbers to boast about."

The pressure he was under from the India public was immense but he handled himself on and off the field in a way that was respected by all," Warne wrote in his column for the 'Daily Telegraph'.
“Sachin Tendulkar was the best batsman of my generation and it will be a privilege to be in Mumbai this week to commentate on the first two days of his final Test," Warne, who is expected to be present in Mumbai for the iconic batsman's 200th and final Test match, said.
