Everybody likes to watch Sachin Tendulkar bat, and once he is done, people just can’t stop raving about what they have just witnessed. The soft-spoken 43-year old owns all the records a quiz master would like to use, to frame a question, and not only would the audience have the answers on their fingertips, they would if given the chance, describe his contributions to the minutest detail. Now that Sachin has scored his 50th Test hundred, the cricketing world has been spontaneous in congratulating the champion on his latest achievement. We decided to put together some quotes praising the genius. Do join us as we put our hands together to applaud the world’s greatest batsman.

"Beneath the helmet, under that unruly curly hair, inside the cranium, there is something we don't know, something beyond scientific measure.

When he goes out to bat, people switch on their television sets and switch off their lives"-BBC Sports, on Sachin Tendulkar

"I have seen God, he bats at no. 4 for India"-Mathew Hayden

"On a train from Shimla to Delhi, there was a halt in one of the stations. The train stopped by for few minutes as usual. Sachin was nearing century, batting on 98.

"I saw him (Sachin) playing on television and was struck by his technique, so I asked my wife to come look at him.

"Well, it's such a record that you can only compare it with Bob Beamon's long-jump world record set in the 1968 Olympics in Mexico. At that time it seemed that it would never be broken. Tendulkar's 50 Test centuries is one such records which doesn't look like being surpassed"-Sunil Gavaskar

And if some people argue about his greatness then there are certainly no arguments about his being the most prolific, he is a complete run machine and his 50th Test hundred is a testimony of his endurance and passion for the sport"-Rashid Latif"It was clear to us even when he walked out to bat in that Test as a teenager that he had talent. The fact that he has been around for 21 years and done justice to that god gifted talent in both forms of the game is an achievement any cricketer would be proud off. It will be difficult for anyone to break his record"-Javed Miandad

"I think it is just the way he has changed the game overall and his own game because there are so many situations he has faced.
