New Delhi:

Yuvraj Singh has partnered Sachin Tendulkar in several matches but the south-paw continues to be in awe of his senior team-mate.

Yuvraj was all praise for Tendulkar in NDTV's Support My School campaign on Sunday and said that he had been blessed with the ability to read bowlers' mind. "I think he knows what the bowler is going to bowl at him. For the last many years, he has been doing it and is smart in it. It comes naturally to him. It is like a god-gift," he said.

Yuvraj feels it is a big achievement for Tendulkar to adjust to a bowler and field changes as not many batsmen are able to do so even if they make an effort. "You do not see this in many players. I have been trying but it has been very difficult."

The stylish left-handed batsmen who had to return early from the tour of England due to an injury, had tweeted his excitement to chat with Sachin earlier in the day. "At 6pm will be chatting to the master blaster in support for his schools for child education on ndtv," he had written.
