Tendulkar's autobiography

Post by KP_fan on Sat 08 Nov 2014, 8:34 am

Playing it my Way...has surprised me.

For a seemingly meek man when not batting......no-comments-no-controversy personality...he has been very candid in his autobiography.

He hasn't evaded what could be controversial subjects.....and simply stated things as he has seen them.
Nasser Hussain the best captain he has played against........well yes that's what I also think.....the most intense , passionate and actually quite a clever captain.

although Tendulkar probably forgot he made his debut vs Imran Khan's side and Imran was a step ahead of Nasser.

I would give Eng more chance in the world cup then Tendulkar think they have Very Happy

He also doesn't count border, because he was too young to judge, hence didn't rate Imran Khan, also rates Clarke ahead of Ponting and Waugh

I'd also rate Clarke ahead of Waugh and definitely Ponting. The summer 2013/14 he managed to extract from that limited Australian squad is as good as any captaincy in history.

Steve Waugh was the best.....mind of Steel...not a negative bone in the body.......the strive for 4RPO in tests....turning mental disintegration into an art.....beat SA a real super-strong team...so often, so comprehensively in tests.
and those two games in the world cup.. the famous quote of Waugh to Gibbs(probably mythical)   " Son you dropped the cup"...the group encounter and the semis.....complete mental domination.
in fact in all my watching of cricket since early 80s...I would rate in following order starting from the best:

1) Imran Khan
2) Steve Waugh
3) Clive Lloyd
4) Ganguly

The SA team Waugh beat out wasn't particularly impressive,
tbh. I suppose our pace bowling line up was world class, but
the rest of the team was rather poor, tbh. Outside of Kallis, I'd
say our batters were verging on pathetic. Our batting line up
throughout the 90s was actually a rather dispersed collection of
triers.

that SA team was the clear No.2 team of that time.....and had Aus been not so ruthless rolling machine..SA would have become No.1

i agree they did not have a heavy weight batting line-up
but then Aus did not have an express pace attack eitehr

look at the bowling attack for example Aus fielded in the world cup game vs SA

McGrath was a medium pacer who I still wonder managed as many wickets as he did
rest was a motely crowd of part-timers with the execption of Warne

GD McGrath 10 0 49 1 4.90 (4nb, 1w)
DW Fleming 10 0 57 3 5.70 (3w)
PR Reiffel 9 0 47 1 5.22 (1w)
8 1 56 0 7.00 (1w)
SK Warne 10 1 33 2 3.30 (2nb, 1w)
MG Bevan 3 0 22 0 7.33 (1w)

His book sounds about as interesting as mine would Smile

Wasn't it Nasser who came up with the leg side theory to Tendulkar, with Giles being the main weapon. Tendulkar did manage to combat it though.
