Mumbai: Terming retiring Sachin Tendulkar's batting technique as the best in the world, legendary West Indian cricketer Brian Lara on Tuesday said if he had a son he would have asked him to learn from the videos of the Indian great to excel in the sport.
"If I had a son who wanted to play cricket I wouldn't have told him not to watch my videos but instead ask him to look for Sachin's (videos) as he has the perfect technique against any kind of bowling. It is the best I have ever seen. Perfect for a youngster to learn from," Lara said.
While praising Tendulkar's impeccable longevity, Lara said it would have been hard for the champion batsman to fulfil the huge expectations of his fans during his two-and-a-half decade career.
