Sachin Tendulkar seemed 10 years-old when I first saw him: Shane Warne

Legendary Australian leg spinner Shane Warne recently spoke about his famed rivalry with Sachin Tendulkar.

He said ,”When I first saw Sachin in 1991 he seemed like a 10-year-old, and he then went on to make an unbelievable hundred. It was only after 8 years that I got to play against him in India”.

Recalling the series in 1998 Warnes said, “It was a great series. But Tendulkar greeted me by smashing the first ball with a smack down the ground for four.”

But on the fourth ball Sachin nicked it to slip and a chuckling Warne said, ” It was an incredible moment as the crowd suddenly went quiet. It was incredibly quiet and I never witnessed such a thing.”

“But in the second innings while chasing Sachin scored another hundred which was the best innings that anyone’s ever played against me or the Australian sides I have played in”. Warne added.
