Eulogising milestone man Sachin Tendulkar for his historic ODI double hundred, India's star off-spinner Harbhajan Singh reckons his illustrious teammate is better than Australian great Sir Don Bradman.

Harbhajan could not witness the record-breaking double century as he skipped the first two matches of the series due to his sister's wedding.

"I am short of words to praise Sachin. Some players compared him with Don Bradman. Although I have not seen Bradman playing but I am confident, he (Sachin) is better than him for which his records speak," Harbhajan told PTI today.

The off-spinner said Tendulkar's hunger for runs and amazing focus makes him an altogether different cricketer.

"Even after scoring 150 in the ODI, Sachin never looks tired and keeps his focus on the game. I have learnt a lot from him, be it on ground or in dressing room. I always observe how he prepares himself for every match," he said.

The temperamental spinner was disappointed that he could not witness Tendulkar's achievement in Gwalior due to prior family commitments.

"I am unfortunate, as I was not there on the ground to witness one of the historic moments. But Sachin's performance definitely added to my happiness during the family function.

"I was busy in the family function, when one of my relatives came with the news of Sachin's double century and I could not stop myself from dancing," he said.
