Sachin Tendulkar can come only second behind legendary Don Bradman in the list of all-time greatest cricketers, feels former Australia captain Steve Waugh.
“Don Bradman is the greatest, there is no debate. Don is the number one and then come the rest. And among the rest, Tendulkar probably is as good as anyone. So legitimately he may be the second-best cricketer to have played the game,” Waugh said.
“But then people will say the same for Gary Sobers and W.G. Grace too. So it's difficult to say,” added Waugh.
Waugh also said it was dangerous to see Test cricket losing out quality fast bowlers to T20 format.
“It is dangerous for Test cricket that we are losing the quicks. It is a T20 influence. Fast bowlers definitely have a lot of stress and doing this is very demanding.
“I think they realise that they have few years of cricket in them. They get three times more money by bowling one-tenth overs in T20.”
