What Makes Sachin a Complete Player?

Sachin is an all-rounder. While playing cricket, he is totally absorbed in the game. He played cricket with the same perfection as a batsman, bowler and fielder. After Sir Viv Richards, sports people love Sachin batting. While fielding, he is all over the field, putting all his efforts in the match. He neither worries about his fellow players nor about the public while in field. His whole concentration was towards his game. He is biggest cricket icon of his times. He is highly principled and balanced. He strikes with perfection, waits for the opportunity and never makes a wrong move while at strike. He knows the temperament of the bowlers and plays any kind of bowler with ease. His anticipation of the ball and it’s placement in line with his judgement. He is a great player both in orthodox shots, back foot and front foot punch and modern stokes. He always has a composed temper and calm player.
One of Sachin’s best performances is against Australia, the best cricket team of Sachin’s time. He was just 19 when he played on the lightning fast pitch at Australia.

For a couple of times he took up captaincy of Indian cricket team. He was not quite composed with that glory and decided to remain as a good player than a captain.  He is a natural leader and guide to his team mates and future cricket players with his actions on the field than preaching the principles of cricket. He is a non controversial cricket player throughout his career and never had any negative remarks. He is a genius in cricket and his name will be house hold for centuries to come.
