Former Pakistan legend, Waqar Younis has picked Sachin Tendulkar’s one innings that had been the highlight of his career against Pakistan. Sachin Tendulkar is widely regarded as the ‘God of Cricket.’ He has set almost every batting record in world cricket and smashed a whole lot of them during his stint on the 22-yard.
Having scored more than 34000 international runs with a ton of international centuries, the Master Blaster of cricket set certain exemplary records during his career. What sets him apart is the fact that he sustained on the international stage for 24 years, a feat that is unimaginable in modern-day cricket.
Now, Waqar Younis has heaped praise on Sachin Tendulkar and named his favourite innings against Pakistan in the history of two nations’ cricket rivalry.
Waqar Younis Names Sachin Tendulkar’s Best Innings Against Pakistan
“Sachin Tendulkar’s innings against Pakistan in 2003 is hard to be described in words because he played so well and especially because India was under pressure on that day and we were good at bowling. So that innings! Probably even if you would ask Sachin about this he might also say the same thing, that it was probably one of his best innings,” Waqar Younis said.
“The way he faced Shoaib Akhtar, Wasim and me under pressure and the way he attacked and got early runs, I think it was amazing innings, one of the best innings I’ve seen,” Waqar YounisYounis said while responding to Tendulkar’s superfan Sudhir Kumar Chaudhary.
The Records Speak Volume For Themselves
Sachin Tendulkar is the leading run-scorer in Tests, with 15,921 runs, as well as in One-Day Internationals, with 18,426 runs. He is the only player to score more than 30,000 runs in all forms of international cricket. He also holds the record of the highest number of centuries in both Tests (51) and ODIs (49) as well as in Tests and ODIs combined (100).
Tendulkar has worked wonders for team India during his 24-year long stint and even after his retirement, there is almost no one who can come close to what Sachin Tendulkar achieved over the years. His dominance and charisma had the power to hold the entire nation when he walked into bat. Therefore, there can be no other Sachin Tendulkar in world cricket.
