Time Magazine's quote on Sachin: Must Read
"When Sachin Tendulkar travelled to Pakistan to face one of the finest bowling attacks ever assembled in cricket, Michael Schumacher was yet to race a F1 car, Lance Armstrong had never been to the Tour de France, Diego Maradona was still the captain of a world champion Argentina team, Pete Sampras had never won a Grand Slam. When Tendulkar embarked on a glorious career taming Imran and company, Roger Federer was a name unheard of; Lionel Messi was in his nappies, Usain Bolt was an unknown kid in the Jamaican backwaters. The Berlin Wall was still intact, USSR was one big, big country, Dr Manmohan Singh was yet to "open" the Nehruvian economy. It seems while Time was having his toll on every individual on the face of this planet, he excused one man. Time stands frozen in front of Sachin Tendulkar. We have had champions, we have had legends, but we have never had another Sachin Tendulkar and we never will. "
There is no sportman in the world who can match sachin's dominance maybe he is anybody
no athlete in the world had have dominated the world before the age of 25 except sachin
he is asia actually and specially indian so he is not on the top of the table if he was american or western he was on top because they keep their own player on top always
you can see the greatness of this man
after losing to india, australian captain which is best team for last 2 decades captain said we did not lost to a team called india we lost to a man name sachin tendulkar
cricket is a game of 11 players but opponent believes just get sachin out and you win the match
such is the greatness of this man
GOD... Means GREATEST OF ALL DOERS
Fulfilling his responsibilities in the same manner he had started 22 years back when he began his international career at just age 16..

Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar, the man who was born to play cricket. The records, which he has set in international level, will tell that he is an untammed bull in his own era but he has very composed and collected mind who knows how to carry himself well in the amidst of world famous name and fame. As a cricket player, one can can excel either in one day format or test, but he has done the magic in both the formats. So I truely believe that he can take the top spot had cricket been the popular game as football or tennis as some quoted previously.
The records which have been set by him to his future generation cricketers to break means that someone has to take cricket not only as a game but life.
P.S. I am honoured to talk about sachin here rating him top among all the great legends.
If showcasing extraordinary talent and an unbelievable skill-set to the world (right from the age of 16) wasn't enough, Tendulkar today backs that up with some stats that are absolutely mind boggling, holding every important batting record in the sport.
Sachin Tendulkar has throughout his 24 year career pushed the limitations of batting to achieve some milestones which people didn't even know existed before he got close to them.
In an era of cricket's most deadly bowlers, Sachin redefined the art of stroke-play.
But Sachin's greatest achievement is the fact that he has shown a nation, where cricket is religion, the power of determination, humility and most importantly, hunger for success.
Sachin makes a strong case for being number one on this list for having dominated every aspect of batting for an unbelievable 24 years, so much so that Cri!
NOBODY CAN EVER MATCH HIS SKILLS AND GOD GIFT WHICH HE POSSES, IF ANYBODY IN THIS WORLD INSPIRE AND WON MORE THAN BILLION HEARTS HE SHOULD BE CALLED MORE THAN A GOD, WELL GOD WAS THINKING OF BEING LOVED BY HUMANS TRULY SO HE CAME AS SACHIN TENDULKAR, NOBODY CAN MATCH THE EFFECT OF A SINGLE SPORTS PERSON AT HUMAN LIFE AT THIS LARGE SCALE EVER. HE IS AND HE WILL BE THE NUMBER 1 EVER AS NOBODY can't BE BETTER THAN GOD FOREVER.
CONSISTENCY AND LONGEVITY is very key to any athlete and no one can match Sachin in this, on top of it even after 22 years he has the same hunger and desire to perform and excel.
Cricket is watched by 1 Billion Indians and this man's contribution to its popularity is maximum, He is GOD to many and probably no other athlete have the pressure to perform as this guy, when he bats a billion heart
Beats for him.
Performing at the highest level in world cricket for 22 years, maintaining fitness and staying away from controversies is what defines the soul of one of the greatest sportsperson of all time.
undoubtedly regarded as the greatest cricketer of all time with almost all the recored at his feet, yet keeping his feet always on ground and keeping the same passion for the game. When he bats, India stops.
has answered the critics with the bat.
so big, yet so humble.
SACHIN IS "GOD OF CRICKET", "LITTLE MASTER", MASTER BLASTER".
HE IS NOT ONLY GOD OF CRICKET;HE IS ALSO GOD FOR CRICKET FANS.
HE DONE MORE THEN 150 UNBEATABLE RECORDS IN HISTORY OF CRICKET.
HIS HEIGHT IS 5.6. BUT HIS FEET PRAISE IS HIGHER THAN EVEREST.
HE IS ONLY CRICKETER TO HIT 200 RUNS IN ODI.
HE IS THE ONLY PERSON 2 HIT 99 CENTURIES IN CRICKET.
Greatest of the Great!
When Roger Federer was in his nappies, Lionel Messi was not even born, Michael Schumachar was yet to win his first world championship out of his 7, Germany's wall was intact, India's economy was closed. He is leading the team since then till today. What else do you want me to say?
Fulfilling his responsibilities in the same manner he had started 22 years back when he began his international career at just age 16.. For all those guys who don't vote for him because you don't know much about him,... At whatever level you adore other athletes in this list... Do learn more about him and I bet, slowly you are gonna fall in love with a true gentleman or even the first look itself...
Tendulkar is a BEAST. Brian Lara is right on his tail, but he is most likely THE best batsman/player in cricket history. His effort and participation reflects on India's scores. Sure, he may have been a bit sluggish during the world cup and after, but his legacy he left impacted cricket so much. He is definitely in a league of his own.
Sachin Tendulkar keeps performing brilliantly under enormous pressure from his cricket-mad nation. He has made more runs than any other player both in Test cricket and One Day International cricket. As I am writing this he will make his 100th international century. For me he is the true no. 1.
Played cricket like no other, in every single form of the game. Holds almost every single record in the game. HE has completely dominated cricket in its entirety.
Why he is better than Michael Jordan. When Jordan came back to basketball he basically did nothing compared to what he did before. You could make the case that he was old. But in any case he didn't.
Sachin has had his ups and downs, But every time he came back he was better stronger and kicked ass. HE did things in the sport that people thought were impossible.
Sachin Tendulkar is one of the best sportsmen of all time, although he didn't won all the matches he played but, He is the one who never lost any hopes. He is not as good captain as kapil Dev or Dhoni but he is a better batsmen from both these guys. He always tries to give his best, and play those strokes which he didn't tried. I think Sachin Tendulkar should be the roll-model for all those guys who try to make their carrier in cricket.
No one ever in any format of game ever had the title of God and this is the guy who made maximum runs for india in 2011 world cup, and won a world cup when he was in peak of his carrier NOT LIKE OTHERS WHO BECAME FAMOUS AFTER WINNING HE WAS ALREADY A KING OH SORRY A GOD AND IT IS ALWAYS DIFFICUL TO PERFORM IN PRESSURE, AND PRESSURE OF 1.2 BILLION PEOPLE IS MAXIMUM ANY SPORSTSMAN EVER FACED, LOVE HIM AND RESPECT HIM
Sachin Tendulkar this one Batsman disturbed many bowlers Cricketing Records & carriers, so all opposition 11 team members used to concentrate on him to stop making runs but all the time he rise from the dawn to show his guts & glory to the world
He many time amaze the world with this legendary spin bowling & turn around the matches.
On higher note at last game of his carrier he touches the ground where he made highest peak of his cricketing carrier this attitude of gratitude. Soft spoken & hardly spoken sachin speaks on last match presentation ceremony were he thanks every body from Groundsman, family, senior, colleagues & fans around the globe
He is Gentleman True Icon & Global Ambassador of Cricket.
He is the best ever player cricket have got. There is not other player of his quality in this world. This man is the best the cricket has seen in his history. Playing in any condition any atmosphere and destroying any opposition, is his quality. Moreover he is considered to be a GOD in cricket.
its not just average that matters.. its the spirit. he is an inspiration not only for cricketers but also for a normal man, he inspires to reach goals, at any cost. as they say"where there is will, there is a way". HE IS "GOD"
there is nothing remaining in the world which is unsaid about sachin tendulkar... he is true legend... not because he is a great batsman n all... but his passion for the game is unbelievable... he just needs to be respected... n he is the only sportsman with maximum sportsmanship spirit... hats off master
He is the best among the listed athletes. Sachin currently holds many records
in Cricket like most runs in ODI, Test. Most Centuries in ODI, TEST. He is one of the most prolific sportsperson in the world. Recently Times rated him as the Greatest Athlete in the world.
He is the god of cricket, and definitely deserves the best athlete of all time. And his hunger to play for the country and make his nation proud is growing day by day. Believe me that no other athlete will get standing innovation every time when walks into the field.
If you see Hindi movie Chak De, a sports man fights back hard to prove that he played for his nation once. Sachin is billion times better than that character in real life. His expression in photos after worldcup 2011 win will reveal it. Total team dedicated the win to him first and then only to the country.. Something beyond spirit of God or Love.
If 50% of population come to know about cricket, they would know about this man. 22 years on and strong. The above people mentioned are more acknowledged since they play individually, team work is not that important. Here comes cricket with complete team-work. Yet he is class apart.
