It is common knowledge among all cricket fans that Sachin Tendulkar had every shot in the book. His batting was always a joy to watch. His stroke-play was elegant, imposing and ruthless all at the same time. The video above is a compilation of some of his lovely strokes.

Watch the video and you will be satisfied by the sheer glory of every stroke. From straight drives to sweeps to the upper cut, the amount of authority he played every stroke with will leave you awe-struck. It’s no wonder that he preferred staying quiet in the face of sledging, only letting his bat do the talking. A lot of those shots have come against high-quality attacks too.
