with the best of the game.
"It is very difficult to compare the legends but Sachin is up there and he is the best batsman I have seen in my era," he said.
Laxman, who is himself considered one of the all-time best Test batsmen, said he always felt that if anybody could play 200 Tests in the world, it would be Tendulkar.
"I never thought that someone will play 200 Tests in his career but one thing I was sure that if someone can do this, it will be only Sachin. He is god's child who could achieve anything on the ground. Nobody in the world will ever be able to repeat this feat," he said.
When asked which cricketing role will suit Tendulkar post retirement, Laxman said that he was sure that the Mumbaikar will keep contributing to Indian sports.
"I don't know in what capacity he will do it but he will contribute to Indian sports. When he became an MP, I asked him why and his reply was that he wants to do something for the well being of sports and sportspersons," he said.
