New Delhi. Legendary Indian batsman Sachin Tendulkar is a favorite of cricket fans and players around the world, but master blaster VVS Laxman, who has set many records in his career, is convinced of his batting. Tendulkar praised the batting of his former teammate VVS Laxman during the tour of Australia in 1999-2000, saying, “You are rich in talent.” You can see the ball a second before me. This incident finds mention in former wicket-keeper batsman MSK Prasad’s new book ‘Sachin @ 50: Celebrating a Maestro’ on Tendulkar’s life. In this book, Tendulkar has been described as the ‘God of Cricket’.

In this book, former Indian cricketer MSK Prasad has mentioned the conversation he had with Tendulkar, Dravid, Ganguly and VVS Laxman on that Australia tour (1999-2000). Tendulkar was the captain of the Indian team on this tour. Prasad said that Rahul Dravid, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman were all three of his favorite players, but the then Indian captain declared Laxman as his favourite.

According to Prasad, a former India selector, Tendulkar told Laxman, who always had a smile on his face, “If you show me your teeth without smiling, I will consider you my favorite player.” Laxman felt that Tendulkar was making fun of him but the Master Blaster cited the reason behind choosing him as his favorite player over Dravid and Ganguly.

Sachin Tendulkar said, “You are very rich in talent. You can see the ball a second before me. God has given you extraordinary talent, which you are not able to understand. Tendulkar said, “My batting is in four gears (phases) ‘Defense, Push, Drive and Loft’. I try to understand the conditions and play accordingly. But you have so much talent that you can bat directly in fourth gear. You see the ball quickly and don’t worry too much about the conditions. ,

He said, “In such a situation, you are sometimes successful and sometimes unsuccessful. The day you understand the first three gears, you will become a great player of the game. The book will be released on Tendulkar’s 50th birthday on Monday.
