The Shane Warne-Sachin Tendulkar mutual admiration society seems to be doing very well.

A few days ago the Australian put the Indian at number one in his list of top 50 cricketers. And now Sachin has returned the compliment by calling Warne "as good a bowler as I ever faced".

Speaking to 'The Times', Tendulkar said, "That's special, I will absolutely treasure this. It feels wonderful when someone of his stature appreciates your performances. Every time I played him, he was always challenging and competitive.

"His greatness was that even when he was not taking wickets, he was still coming at you all the time."

Shane Warne had ranked Sachin ahead of even Brian Lara because of his ability to perform under extreme and constant pressure.
