Sachin Tendulkar’s style on the field is been praised by Amitabh Bachchan in his blog in which he said that: "Sachin’s command of the game is of course beyond all doubt but what has ever surprised me is his great understanding of the game of cricket." He gave an example: "I had the good fortune to be in a cricket stadium, where both he and I watched a match between India and Pakistan in the famous Eden Gardens, Kolkata. His predictions and his advice on the game every few minutes - where the next ball would be bowled, how the batsman would play what stroke, why the field set was wrong and why it was right and eventually his prediction of where the game was going, was simply unimaginable. It was godlike."
