Former England Skipper Nasser Hussain had said that Sachin Tendulkar had an magnificent technique & during his captaincy tenure he had a hard time figuring out how to dismiss the master Blaster from the pitch.
Nasser Hussain was speaking to Ian Bishop and Elma Smit in the latest episode of ICC podcast titled ‘Cricket Inside Out’ & it was then that the former England Captain was asked to name a batsman with a good bowling technique.
“For me, the technique is getting runs in all parts of the world, and I like someone who plays with soft hands and lets the ball come to him, Kane Williamson for me has a very good technique in the current era, he plays the ball late with soft hands, as a result of T20 cricket, players in the modern gameplay with hard hands, Williamson can play all three formats and can adapt his game to each,’ Hussain said during the podcast.
“Overall when I talk about all-time batsmen, Sachin Tendulkar had a magnificent technique, when I was England skipper, I cannot remember how many team meetings we used to have just to discuss how to get Tendulkar out,” he added.
During the podcast, Bishop said that Tendulkar was the most difficult batsman he has ever bowled in his career. “Sachin Tendulkar is one of the most difficult batsmen to whom I have bowled in my career, he always used to hit in the straight lines,” Bishop said.
Tendulkar has written his name in golden words in the history of Cricket with his spectacular unbeaten records. The Master Blaster has the most number of runs in the longest format of the game by scoring whopping 15,921 runs. And scored 51 Test centuries the highest that any player has achieved.
