Fletcher praises Tendulkar’s Chennai knockDecember 18th, 2008 - 9:32 pm ICT by IANS
London, Dec 18 (IANS) Sachin Tendulkar’s match winning century in the Chennai Test against England has drawn praise from former England coach Duncan Fletcher.”Tendulkar played so well on Monday he probably would have scored a hundred against any attack. I remember thinking during India’s tour of England in 2002 that we had the better of him early on and that it was Rahul Dravid who was the major problem,” Fletcher wrote in his column in The Guardian.
“Now the roles have been reversed. Are there any chinks in his armour? We used to think he could be vulnerable against the short ball but the problem in India is that it doesn’t bounce very high. It might not be much consolation to England, but sometimes you just have to accept you’ve been outplayed by one of the game’s true greats,” he added.
