When People Throw Stones At You, You Turn Them Into MileStones

Wankhede stadium will turn into a fortress of sorts as former cricketers, Bollywood celebrities and high profile politicians, all come together to watch India’s pride in action for the last time.

While some lucky ones will get to watch their idol play LIVE in the stadium, others will have to be content watching Sachin play his last international test match on the small screen.

With Sachin mania gripping the nation, TV channels, print media and the web are filled with programmes, articles, posts, tweets and blogs of Sachin nostalgia, remembering India’s greatest cricket hero with love and admiration.

The retirement of Sachin will create a void in the world of cricket, especially in the Indian cricket team, which will be hard to fill. Sachin Tendulkar’s amazing talent has evoked memorable comments from stalwarts in the world of cricket.

Here are some of the most talked about quotes:


“I’ll be going to bed having nightmares of Sachin just running down the wicket and belting me back over the head for six. He was unstoppable. I don’t think anyone, apart from Don Bradman, is in the same class as Sachin Tendulkar. He is just an amazing player.”

~ Ace Australian spinner Shane Warne

“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… The pressure he was under from the Indian public was immense but he handled himself on and off the field in a way that was respected by all.”
~ Ace Australian spinner Shane Warne wrote in his column for London’s Daily Telegraph


“There are two kind of batsmen in the world. One Sachin Tendulkar. Two all the others.”
~ Former Zimbabwe cricketer Andy Flower


“We did not lose to a team called India…we lost to a man called Sachin.”

~ Australian Captain Mark Taylor when Australian team lost to India in the Chennai test as Tendulkar scored the unbeatable 155 runs

“The joy he brings to the millions of his countrymen, the grace with which he handles all the adulation and the expectations and his innate humility – all make for a one-in-a-billion individual”.

~ Australian fast bowler Glen McGrath


“I have seen God, he bats at no. 4 for India.”

~ Australian cricketer Matthew Hayden


“Commit all your crimes when Sachin is batting. They will go unnoticed because even the Lord is watching.”

~ A placard at the Sydney Cricket Ground


“Beneath the helmet, under that unruly curly hair, inside the cranium, there is something we don’t know, something beyond scientific measure. Something that allows him to soar, to roam a territory of sport that, forget us, even those who are gifted enough to play alongside him cannot even fathom. When he goes out to bat, people switch on their television sets and switch off their lives.”

~ BBC Sports
