Sachin tendulkar is a awesome player and it was a really fantastic knock, after little masters century in the Chennai Test, England stumper Matt Prior said England had very little when the sachin gets going.

He is one of the best cricketers ever i have seen so closely and when he fires like this, there is little any opposition can do," said the England stumper during practice session at Mohali stadium.

More or less of the same view, Prior said keeping the wicket allows him to witness many great knocks and Tendulkar's 103* in Chennai would rank among the best.

Prior said the Chennai crowd saw test cricket at its best but it was really hard to loose the match after playing with so much of intensity.

The defeat was hard. After five days of intense cricket, ending up on the losing side is really sad,prior said. But we have got huge positives from the match and coming so close was a huge plus for us.

Tendulkar's magnificent ton, coming in the backdrop of the recent terror attacks in the city he hails from, has already led to an eulogy in the British press and "Little Lord" and "Mother Teresa of Cricket" were some of the sobriquets he earned from the English journalists.
