Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan says he is very proud of Sachin Tendulkar for being the first cricketer to score 50 Test centuries, but is miffed at constant attempts to compare him with legends like Don Bradman. “Why must there be a debate or even a discussion on whether Sachin is greater than Don Bradman or not? Sachin is greater, period!
By bringing the topic up for debate, you are somewhere unsure whether he really is deserving of being great or not. And this is objectionable to me,” wrote Amitabh on his blog, after being constantly asked to comment on Tendulkar’s achievements.
