The (Tino) Best of.... with Yakesh Sachdev


Yakesh Sachdev

Who (in your opinion) is the greatest cricketer of all time? And Why?

Sachin Tendulkar. Exemplary Batting ability with exemplary attitude towards cricket and all with a billion hopes on his shoulders carried with pride and humility.

What is your favourite moment in Cricket - this could be either watching it or playing it and could be at any level of the game, and why is it such a good moment for you?

Participating in the successful Menorca Cup competition for Winchester at the height of my all round prowess.

Who would be part of your "Cricket Dream 11" - this could be any players from any nation, from any standard of the game. I just need 11 names and why!

1. Sachin for obvious reasons.

2. Kane Williamson- superb temperament and technique.

3. Malcolm Marshall- hard pushed to find a more skillful pacer.

4. Michael Holding- whispering death- just to see the fear in the eyes of the batsman when he would glide through that run up.

5. Virat Kohli- on a par with the best and sheer passion.

6. Ian Botham- in his prime, as destructive an all rounder as anyone.

7. James Anderson- reliable excellence

8. Muttiah Muralitharan- prodigious talent and match winner.

9. Anil Kumble- miserly and quick thinking spinner.

10. Mahendra Singh Dhoni- master tactician and no slouch with the bat or gloves.

11. Trent Boult- under rated on the World stage as a fantastically skilled exponent of swing bowling.

Let's look closer to home.. Who in your opinion is the best bowler you've seen play for FVCC - doesn't have to be a current player

James Loomes

Let's cover the batter's now. Who is the best batsman you've seen play for FVCC - again this doesn't have to be a current player.


Let's finish with a little bit of fun. Who from the international circuit (current or past) do you imagine you most closely resemble in terms of cricket style and why?

Probably try to emulate between Sachin and Rahul David, but often fail miserably.
