F0rmer Sri Lanka cricketer Sanath Jayasuriya said on Saturday that Indian batting legend Sachin Tendulkar is the best player he has ever seen.


“Everyone knows what Sachin has done for cricket and for India. He is one player who is dedicated, committed and played with passion. I had played along with him for three years in Mumbai Indians and found him to be a very simple man and easy to approach,” Jayasuriya said.


The former Sri Lanka captain is here as the chief guest of a cricket tournament organised by the Thiruvananthapuram Press Club.


Commenting on Twenty20 cricket, Jayasuriya said that the format has its own pluses and minuses.
