Sachin TendulkarKolkata, Jan 16 (IANS) Sri Lankan fast bowler Chaminda Vaas Friday said that International Cricket Council (ICC) rankings were no indicator of a player’s calibre and Sachin Tendulkar would always be regarded as an all time great batsman.Vaas’ comments came in the wake of the Tendulkar being placed 26th in ICC’s all-time great ranking.

Vaas, who is here to play local cricket for Mohun Bagan, said he was still fit to make a comeback to the Lankan one day team any day.

“At the moment, the selectors are focussing on inducting new blood. Still I am fitter and can comeback in the team,” Vaas said.

He felt that Ajantha Mendis had improved a lot following the experience he gained in top flight cricket. “He has shown consistency in Tests and One-dayers. This shows he has evolved as a bowler”.

On Zaheer Khan, Vaas said: “The left arm-pacer has matured very much since the England series and was now bowling in the right areas.”
