Noted columnist Peter Roebuck described Tendulkar as the “most satisfying cricketer of his generation”. “It has been an incredible journey, a trip that figures alone cannot define. Not that the statistics lack weight, they are astonishing, almost mind-boggling.

“He has scored an avalanche of runs in every form of the game, reached three figures 87 times, and all the while has somehow retained his freshness, somehow avoided the mechanical, the repetitive and the predictable,” Roebuck wrote in his column on cricinfo.com.
