West Indies great pays the now retiring star the ultimate compliment.
“Sachin I think he is God when batsmanship is concerned.”
That is Viv Richards’ opinion of Sachin Tendulkar when he was asked who was the best to ever wield the willow in the history of cricket.
Tendulkar, who will walk away from the game forever after his 200th career Test match when he sides plays the West Indies at Mumbai, was given the ultimate compliment by one of the best of his generation in the form of Richards.
Such praise from the likes of Richards, means Tendulkar’s standing in the game transcended his own era and country, as fans of the game basked in his performances over the years.
