Ricky Ponting has called Sachin Tendulkar the best batsman of his generation

Ex-Australian and prolific batsman, Ricky Ponting has called Sachin Tendulkar the best batsman of his generation.

Ahead of the launch of his book, At The Close Of Play, in a conversation with Fox Sports News, Ponting said that Tendulkar was the best he had seen.

“He’s undoubtedly technically the best batsman I’ve seen, played against, played with. I’ve said that for a long time.

“One, because of the amount of success he had against us - it seemed just about every time we played against him he made a hundred. There weren’t too many series that went by that he didn’t dominate.

“Technically the best batsman I’ve seen, and quite easily as well,” the Aussie said.

Incidentally, Ponting has criticised Sachin’s role in the infamous ‘Monkeygate’ episode in 2008 in his latest book.

Ponting was Tendulkar’s teammate in the IPL this year, playing for Mumbai Indians along with the Indian maestro.
