Former Australian cricketer Neil Harvey opines that Indian batting star Sachin Tendulkar is the best cricketer ever in the game since Sir Donald Bradman.
Harvey, who was a part of the Australian team when Bradman scored his 100th first-class century, against Lala Amarnath’s Indians in a tour game in 1947, has pledged to watch Tendulkar play at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
“I will go (to the SCG) and wish him well. He’s probably been the best player since Bradman. Good luck to him. I just wouldn’t like to see him go on for too long,” 83-year-old Harvey told MiD DAY.
“I know there is a lot going on in Tendulkar’s mind. There are huge expectations from even the Australian crowds. He would be better off trying to play some shots and get on top of the bowling. I just love watching him play. Whatever happens… if he gets none or a hundred, he will get a standing ovation,” said Harvey.
Harvey was present when Tendulkar scored his only second international ton in 1992 Sydney Test, but doesn’t remember it clearly.
“I remember that knock (148 not out). Being so young (19), he had no fear in those days. He just played all the shots that he had available to him and annihilated our attack,” said Harvey…..
