The great Sachin Tendulkar heaped huge admiration on India's 27-year-old player ahead of the crucial series against South Africa.

Rumour has it that when the great Sachin Tendulkar gives an opinion, everyone listens. Tendulkar is well-known for having an uncanny ability to spot budding talent and more often than not, when he talks positively of a cricketer, it becomes the player's most cherished compliment.

Everyone Tendulkar has praised, from Prithvi Shaw to Suryakumar Yadav to Ishan Kishan, has had a great influence on them. Tendulkar's most famous prediction came true in 2013, when he named Mitchell Johnson as the guy to watch during the Ashes, and the left-arm fast bowler rocked England with 37 wickets.

The Indian great praised Mohammed Siraj's enthusiasm and body language, describing him as a brilliant student. These two things, he said, were the driving forces behind Siraj's unfathomable level of success in such a short period of time.

Tendulkar stated that Siraj has got a spring in his legs which is what he is impressed by. He added that Siraj has got a lot of energy and he is also one of those bowlers what people can’t tell if it’s the first or last over of the day by looking at him. He commented that Siraj is constantly coming at him, bowls really fast and his demeanour is very positive which is what he likes about him.

The 27-year-old bowler made his Test debut against Australia in Melbourne last year. He has since taken 33 wickets in ten Tests, including one five-wicket haul. Siraj's 5/73 against Australia helped India win at Brisbane and seal the series 2-1, before he went on to have a few more brilliant outstanding spells in England. Tendulkar believes Siraj does not appear to be a newcomer to Test cricket and that the pacer appears to be a seasoned veteran at times.

Tendulkar remarked that Siraj always played every game as if it was his first, the level of maturity he displayed and he constructs his spells so gracefully. He added that Siraj bring something new to the field for every game.
