Sachin is Don Bradman of modern era - says Lara

Brain Lara with Sachin Tendulkar

Saluting the longevity of Sachin Tendulkar, West Indies great Brian Lara has described the Indian batting legend as the ‘Don Bradman’ of modern era but refused to the compare the icons of different eras.

Lara, himself a legendary left-handed batsman from the Caribbean, said what astonishes him the most about Tendulkar is his longevity.- Lara said of his close friend .

The West Indies player is of the opinion that
"Australian great Don Bradman, who ended his career with an incredible Test average of  99.96, and Tendulkar should not be compared as they played and flourished in different eras. Sachin is our period’s Don Bradman. Forget the difference in averages with Bradman but whoever I have spoken to who have seen very old players in action, they believe that he (Bradman) would not have averaged 99 in today’s cricket. So I believe that Sachin is our period’s Bradman,”

- Brain Lara said of his close friend .
