Visakhapatnam:

Veteran Indian off-spinner Harbhajan Singh on Friday backed senior teammate Sachin Tendulkar, insisting that he remains a phenomenon despite being off-colour in the just-concluded Test series against New Zealand.

"I don't want to comment on what others have said. But Sachin is somebody we all have looked up to while playing. He is the best cricketer I have played with," Harbhajan said here.

"He scores 100s but never gets tired. His hunger for runs is amazing. He is truly a phenomenon, a legend and the God of cricket. Yet he keeps himself so simple. You learn a lot from him," he added.

The 39-year-old Tendulkar was bowled thrice in four innings in the just-concluded India-New Zealand Test series, prompting many to announce that age is catching up with him.
