Sachin Tendulkar is a great batsman - Atherton

Sachin Tendulkar is a abundant batsman but to advance he is the best anytime is analytical to those above greats who survived the bodyline alternation and stood at the bulge after any modern-day assurance gears, feels above England skipper Mike Atherton.

“To advance that Tendulkar or, indeed, any modern, armoured or, to use (Viv) Richards’s phrase, “pampered” amateur is the best anytime is analytical to those above greats who stood at the bulge in the ability that their abutting brawl could be their last,” Atherton wrote in The Times.

Atherton feels modern-day protections accept fabricated activity easier for accepted batsmen compared to yesteryear and so it charcoal to be apparent how Tendulkar’s career would accept shaped up if these apparatus were not available. “Images of Tendulkar accept adorned newspapers and websites throughout the week. Images, mostly, of the ‘Little Master’ at the crease, bunched and balanced.

“So bunched and balanced, in fact, that Bradman said Tendulkar was the avant-garde amateur whose adjustment best carefully resembled his own. There was, though, one acute difference, which the angel of Tendulkar on these pages on Monday highlighted.

Perched on top of Tendulkar’s arch ... was a ablaze dejected helmet and a grille to assure his features.

“Tendulkar was batting in a one-day game, but had the angel been of him batting in whites, there is a acceptable adventitious that, forth with a helmet, Tendulkar would accept been cutting an arm bouncer and a chest guard, too. He is consistently abundantly protected,” he wrote. “Which is not to say that Tendulkar lacks bravery. Indeed, he accepted his ‘manhood’ in his aboriginal Test alternation back Waqar Younis bloodied his adenoids and Tendulkar banned analysis and agitated on batting,” Atherton said
