Former Australian captain Michael Clarke has labelled Sachin Tendulkar as the hardest batsman to get out. He believes that Sachin had strong technical skills, so it was hard to take the wicket of the legendary cricketer.
Clarke led the Australian team to ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 victory at home. He played with and against many big legends like Ricky Ponting, Adam Gilchrist, Brian Lara, Jacques Kallis but he picked Sachin Tendulkar as the hardest batsman to face.
Michael Clarke picks Virat Kohli as the best batsman
“Probably technically the best batsman (Tendulkar) I ever saw. The hardest batsman to get out. I think Sachin, technically, didn’t have a weakness. Part of you hoped that he made a mistake,” Fox Sports quoted Clarke as saying on the Big Sports Breakfast radio show.
Clarke also asserted that the Indian captain Virat Kohli, who averages over 50 in every format, is the best batsman in the current era.
“I think right now the best batsman across all three formats. His one day and twenty-twenty records are phenomenal and he’s also found a way to dominate Test cricket,” he added.
He mentioned that both Virat and Sachin like to score hundred and this is a similarity between them. Well, Sachin, even after seven years of retirement, still holds the record of the highest number of centuries in ODI as well as international cricket. He registered 49 ODI centuries and the present Indian skipper Virat is near to overtake Sachin’s record. Virat has registered 43 ODI centuries in 248 games played so far. He is the only potential player who can break the record of Master Blaster.
Tendulkar is the only cricketer to have played 200 Test matches and score 100 international centuries. He still holds the record for scoring most number of runs in both Tests and ODIs – 15921 runs in 200 Tests and 18426 in 463 ODIs.
