There have been many quotes about Sachin Tendulkar. Why even Sanjay Manjrekar has quoted about Sachin (that is Sanjay’s greatest claim to fame). However this is one which is great:
“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 a Sachin Tendulkar and we never will.
The other quote is by Barrack Obama “I watch cricket, not because I understand it, but just to see who is the guy who …when he plays…the productivity of my country drops 50%”.
I HAVE MY DOUBTS ABOUT THIS QUOTE BEING A FAKE QUOTE…but it sums up the situation very well. I am also sure that only Indians in the USA must be watching cricket – so this is likely to be fake…but what the hell!
Considering the impact of Sachin on such a varied population, Sanjay Manjrekar is lucky that people still listen to his fantastic comments about Sachin.
