Sachin is so over-rated. He is only considered as a good cricketer because of his fans in sub-continental areas of Asia. There are so many supporters of the sport in this region and therefore they just jump on the bandwagon. Ricky Ponting, for example, is a far better cricketer, not only when it comes to batting, but fielding and bowling also. Sachin should not be ranked in the top 100 cricketers of all time! Shane Watson is the true GOD OF CRICKET

Sachin is not overrated he in fact earned his place in that list of top 100 cricketers . He won many ICC world cups for India and has score many runs for india as well. If you seen Sachin play with India you would know that he has scored many centuries and half centuries. He also captained his team to glory. He is one of the best batsmen of all-time and gave Australia a hard time in the pitch. He is one of the best batsmen ever to set foot on the pitch and can only be described as a bowlers nightmare. He has scored centuries against many great teams like Australia, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, west Indies, England and South Africa. the highest he ever scored in the pitch (including one day and test cricket) was 248 runs and not out. Although he is a great batsmen, he isn't very good ate bowling or fielding but that doesn't mean he is overrated.

Sachin is BAD. He only gets his runs against the bad bowlers. he waits until the good bowlers have bowled to the openers then he comes in at first or second drop because he is scared of Brett Lee and Lasith Malinga. He has only scored big runs against bad teams. Sri Lanka is the best team in the world becaue they alwasy score runs and get wickets. They also have the best wicket keeper in the whole world and they have cool names, like Sangakara. Tendulkar is a bad name for a cricketer. Plus Sachin uses bad bats.

You've gone widely off topic by talking about the sri lankan cricket team. Anyway back on topic Sachin has scored against great bowlers like Shane warne, Brett Lee and Malinga. Those are just a few bowlers to name. Sachin scored lots of centuries against teams like Australia, Pakistan, west indies and even sri lanka. Even in ODI. Against Sri Lanka he scored 138 runs, which is really good. Sachin uses bad bat, but he score lots of runs with bad bats so imagine him with good bats. Also can you please tell me how someone's name effects their cricket ability?

I see you've ignored my VALID point that Sangakara is a good keeper. Sachin cannot wicketkeep! you are avoiding my arguments. This is a sign of failure. Sangakara has scored just under 1200 international test runs for sri lanka and Tendulkar... HE HAS ZERO! this is an obvious fact that Sachin is BAD!!!!!

SO what if Sangakara can wicketkeep, Sachin is a great batsmen and his famous for batting very good and making his team win making him one of the best batsmen of all time. It's obvious that you don't watch cricket as it is seen clearly through your last statement. You also provided zero evidence while making your statements making your arguments invalid. Tendulkar has score over 1200 international test cricket runs in just 8 games. The eight games were against England, Australia, South Africa, Sri Lanka and the West Indies.
