Warne puts Tendulkar above Lara

New Delhi, October 10

Spin great Shane Warne on Wednesday said he would prefer Sachin Tendulkar over Brian Lara if he had to pick one to bat for his life. Though the 49-year-old Australian refused to get drawn into the perennial debate on who between the two was a better batsman, he did say that he would want Tendulkar to bat for his life.

“Sachin and Brian, easily, were the best batsmen of our generation, my time. If I want someone to score a hundred on the final day of the Test series, I would send Lara. But if I want someone to bat for my life day in, day out, I would send Tendulkar, he was a class act,” said Warne. — PTI
