Shane Warne reveals his list of most favourite batsman from each nation

Right from Sydney in January 1992, when Shane Warne made his Test debut in the third match of the series in which Sachin Tendulkar scored an unbeaten 148, to the numerous T20 matches in the Indian Premier League, the two greatest cricketers of the past two decades have fought memorable battles on the pitch which have become part of cricket folklore. And so it was not surprising at all when the spin wizard chose the batting maestro as the best Indian batsman he had bowled to.

The retired leg-spinner took to Twitter to share the “best batsmen” list of most difficult cricketers he had bowled to from each cricket playing country. The legendary Australian leg-spinner put Sachin Tendulkar right on top of that list.

Warne, who took 708 wickets in Tests and 293 wickets in ODI, posted on twitter, “Wasn’t easy as there were so many wonderful players. Will also tell you who I enjoyed bowling to the most too haha.”

He also posted a video about the same on his official Facebook account. On his decision to chose Tendulkar , Warne said: “To me, Sachin was the best batsman of my generation. A wonderful player all round – too fast, bowlers, spinners, in all conditions. Navjot Singh Sidhu was one of the most violent players of spin bowling and used to whack you out of the park. So, he was another good player from India against spinners.”

Warne listed ten players on the list across all teams. Topping the list was Sachin Tendulkar from India, followed by Graham Gooch from England was at second. The Third and fourth batsmen were former South African captain Hansie Cronje and all-rounder Jacques Kallis respectively.  Shahid Anwar, the Pakistan opener, followed them at number five. West Indies great Brian Lara s, Aravinda De Silva from Sri Lanka, David Houghton from Zimbabwe, Mohammad Ashraful from Bangladesh, and late New Zealand batsman Martin Crowe completed the next position in the  list.
