The topic of the Greatest Of All Time debate goes furious every time. For most cricket fans, the God of cricket, Sachin Tendulkar is the GOAT. Some say it can be Virat Kohli. However, these two are not that good for captaincy. Talking about this Pakistan’s former cricketer, Saqlain Mushtaq has his words on this. He says Sachin is the greatest of all time as he faced tough bowlers in his era.
Saqlain Mushtaq on Sachin said that
“If there is one batter – and it’s not just me, the whole world agrees – there is no one bigger than Sachin Tendulkar. If you have to give a copybook example of any shot, people give Sachin’s example. Virat Kohli is a legend of today’s era, but Sachin has faced extremely difficult bowlers,”
He further added that
“The bowlers of that era were something different altogether. Has Kohli faced Wasim Akram? Has he faced Walsh, Ambrose, McGrath, Shane Warne, and Muralitharan? These were big names, and they were all very clever bowlers. They knew how to trap you. Today there are two types of bowlers—one that will stop you and another that will trap you. Those guys knew how to do them both, especially trap batters,”
The stats of the GOD of cricket says he is the best. He has scored 100 centuries in international cricket. Sachin has contributed a lot with the ball as well. He took 154 wickets in ODI cricket alone. In test cricket, He has taken the 46 wickets.
