  • First half -> Avg 57. A 100 every 5 innings or so .... One of the best batsmen ever. Attacking batsman .... Played some memorable innings like in Aus, SA, vs. Pak, and so on 
  • 2nd half -> Avg of 47. A drop of 10! A 100 every 10 innings or so .... Also became a bit Dravidisque. That 194* in Pak where he went into a shell as he approached his 200, the 241 in Aus where he cut down on some shots  .... Dravid, Sehwag, and Laxman had better averages in the 2002-2013 period.

I evaluate Sachin's career like  this, ie:  by the time other greats of the game    are about to turn 20 they would have polished  their talents in domestic and  then enter national team and then make a glorious   ATG career. Sachin due to his phenomenal talent,  entered the national team by 16 y 212 d itself  and polished his  talent in national team  and by the time he  was about to make 20, started making a phenomenal career that outweighed that of every other ATG so convincingly as seen below.

 

https://stats.espncricinfo.com/ci/engine/player/35320.html?class=1;spanmax1=20+feb+2011;spanmin1=02+jan+1993;spanval1=span;template=results;type=batting

 

13607 runs @59.41 with 47 100s,  home avg: 57.33, abr: avg: 61.48 & lowest avg: in any country  44.66  abr: 100s:25

the above stats still is convincingly better to that of every  other ATG.

That is almost an Ind AT batting apart from a few slots .... Veeru was amazing not only with his avg (w/ just 4 not outs) in relation to the SR (avg of 50 at a SR of 83) but also 100s per inning (relative to others) .... scored 6 200s as well in this period

Interesting; I dare say SRT's critics are usually younger viewers who were spoilt a bit by Indias batting riches in the noughties and who did not see him at his 90's peak.

Should have retired after Aus in 2012 in tests. Tbh should have retired after the WC win completely but he was in such red hot form in the wc that it made sense for him to play the next 2 tough overseas series but that should have been it.

 

in 2010-2011 after the Sa series and the wc no one would even dispute Sachin as the greatest of all time but unfortunately he left gaps in his stats due to post 2011.

In the 90s, I rated Sachin as the best among his contemporaries (and also due to emotional attachment).  As time progressed, Tendulkar's cricket changed and I also became relatively more "neutral" when it comes to rating/valuing players. I rate him as one of the best now.

then just take it as a context of longevity.  Take Kohli's alarming fall of average in NZL  from  71.33 to  36( reduced by 50%)  in a single series as a testimony . Kohli couldn't maintain his average even in his  age of 31.That is how difficult it is to maintain averages.Sachin degraded only after 38 years due to slowing reflexes courtesy aging.  That is what longevity can do to  a batsman's career in general.

Sachin's career is divided in 2 parts:

 

When he had the age he didn't have the team.

When he had the team he didn't have the age.

His Test career can be divided into 6 parts.

 

The "rookie" phase from 1989-1993 

The prime years from 1994 - 1999 (pre-back injury)

The plateau phase of 1999 (post-back injury) - 2002

The initial decline and the injury-ridden phase of 2003-2006

The renaissance of 2007 - 2011

The terminal decline from 2011- 2013

 

I will do a write-up on this some day :p:.
