One bagged 708 Test wickets – the other racked up 15,921 Test runs.
Australian leg-spinner Shane Warne and Indian run-machine Sachin Tendulkar had some fantastic battles over the years and they were reunited again at Lord’s this summer for a very special insight into their on-field contests.
Watch the video above to watch the two legends discuss the rivalry from their perspective and how they tried to gain the upper hand on the other, including…
FIRST MEMORIES – the pair recall their first Test conflict in the 1991/92 series, in Sydney, when it’s fair to say Sachin got the upper hand!
GREAT CHALLENGES – Shane describes how he would prepare to bowl to Sachin and then how he’d execute those plans against a batsman “with all the shots”
BIGGEST BATTLE – Sachin explains how he could never afford to switch off against Shane but backed his natural instincts to play his shots against one of the best bowlers ever
But talk is one thing – playing each other is another, so we asked Shane and Sachin to square up to each other once again on a wearing Lord’s pitch, concluding with a last-ball run challenge.
