''In his life cricket comes first. When he is on tour he is thinking about nothing but cricket, and when he is not on tour he dedicates quality time to his family. That shows his dedication to the game and to his family. He has found the right balance.'' - Tendulkar's India teammate and opening partner Virender Sehwag.
''He loves cricket and with his hardwork, focus and commitment he has truly become a outstanding ambassador for the sport at a time when commercialism is so rampant.'' - Former Pakistan captain and coach Javed Miandad.
