India’s Under 19 World Cup-winning captain, Unmukt Chand has said that he regards Sachin Tendulkar as the greatest batsman of all time. Unmukt Chand led India to an Under 19 World Cup win in 2012 in Australia. He smashed a scintillating century in the final of the tournament against the hosts and helped India win the title.
Although Unmukt was regarded as the next big thing in Indian cricket after Virat Kohli, the Delhi-based batsman still awaits an opportunity to make his senior international debut. His career after the Under 19 World Cup has seen a downfall, and he has majorly been a part of only domestic and first-class cricket circuit in the country.
In an exclusive chat with CricketAddictor.com, Unmukt Chand hailed Sachin Tendulkar as the greatest batsman ever in world cricket.
Sachin Tendulkar Has Been An Epitome Of Success In World Cricket
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 for an immensely long period in the international circuit. Sachin had a 24-year long international career. Many players can’t even sustain its half because of the competitiveness that international cricket brings along with.
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.
