Sachin Tendulkar

Cricket’s greatest ever player, Sir Donald Bradman, was watching a 1996 World Cup match on television when he first saw Sachin Tendulkar bat. The Indian player’s technique seemed strangely familiar. Though his stance and his movements were compact and efficient, he hit the ball hard and his shots were ruthlessly effective. The Australian called his wife into the living room of their suburban Adelaide home. “Who does this remind you of?” asked Bradman, then 87. The answer was obvious. “I never saw myself play,” Bradman said later. “But I feel that this player is playing much the same [way] I used to play.”
