India's batting legend Sachin Tendulkar has long been associated with numerous glowing terms whenever his former teammates or opponents have been asked to describe the right-hander.
And, just when you thought we were running out of adjectives to glorify our god of cricket, Mumbai captain Aditya Tare came up with his own description of the Little Master.
While talking to The Hindu, Tare labelled the master blaster as a "cricket library" and hailed the former Indian captain's valuable contribution which led to Mumbai's Ranji Trophy success this season.
"Our's is a young team and Tendulkar sir has been a big help to us. He is an inspiration to all of us. He still shows a lot of interest in Mumbai cricket," Tare said.
"Tendulkar sir spends time with us whenever possible, keeps meeting us. And he's like a cricket library. If you have any question on batting, bowling, fielding or even wicket-keeping, you just have to approach and ask him. You will get the right answer," the wicketkeeper-batsman further added.
Tare-led Mumbai are on the verge of making it to the Ranji Trophy finals following a dominating performance against Madhya Pradesh in the semis. The Mumbai batsmen overpowered the Madhya Pradesh bowling attack to post 371 runs in the first innings.
The Mumbai skipper led from the front with scores of 68 in the first innings and 109 in the second. In reply, Madhya Pradesh were bundled out for 277 runs.
