Anand on the Nieman-Carlsen cheating fiasco
“I don’t know if I am too naive or if I am too trusting,” says Anand.

Anand on success in chess today
Classical games was far superior 50 years ago. You were considered a world champion when you won in that format. Blitz was played casually. It was unlucky for me I dominated rapid chess and some blitz. But at the time there was official rating for rapid. Now in the last 10 years there are dozens of records being tallied up, I lived in the pre-record era. As people caught familiar with it, rapid chess caught up with classic pretty fast. There is still a gap. You should have an open mind with formats, play whichever he audience is willing to watch. If you produce a good quality game, great. Main thing is to show your skills.

Won’t change anything: Anand

Lara and Tendulkar’s T20 World Cup predictions
Lara: Pakistan has the better team. I would like to see the trophy stay in Asia
Tendulkar: Looking at the ground dimension, I am going with England. Pakistan have the momentum but England will get to play square of the wicket. Adelaide had short square boundaries and longish straight boundaries. Up front, they will look to swing and later on they will go short, forcing them to play square.
Nov 12, 2022 01:33 PM IST
Tendulkar talks about shots he wished he tried
“I’ve never played scoop for six, or a reverse sweep for 6 over cover. Virat, Rohit, they don’t play such shots but are equally effective. The guy sitting beside me didn’t play all these but he had a great strike rate. Players practice all these shots. It is all about practicing. Once you know certain movements, hands become important even when the footwork is not there. I have seen during the IPL that players are practicing, not experimenting. To an outsider, you feel ‘why is he taking that risk’. But it’s practice.”
Nov 12, 2022 01:32 PM IST
The present day player has evolved in a way that is beneficial for the game: Lara
“I love all the shots they guys play. I wish I tries some before I retired. I thing the present day player has evolved in a way that it’s only beneficial for the game. People like to write about past players but these guys are good. They struggle a bit against Test but their concentration playing so many formats is incredible.”

He killed the concept that Clive Lloyd created: Lara on Warne
I found out why he was so good at what he did. If he was standing at a put, he would still be threatening. He bowled a lot against sub-continent batsmen in his early Test career. But his breakout Test match was against West Indies in MCG where he picked up 7 wickets. From there, his star just rose to a level that was unbelievable for spinners. He killed the concept that Clive Lloyd that you need to have 4 fast bowlers to win a Test. He was extraordinary alongwith Murali. We played against the two best spinners.

Tendulkar recalls a meal at home with Shane Warne
In 2000, I had invited Warnie over for a nice meal. I asked him ‘Are you ok with Indian food, spicy food?’. He said ‘I avoid spicy food’ so I told my chef. I also invited my manager. We are sitting at the table, I am serving everyone. I saw Warnie eating a little, looking here and there so when I asked him if all is ok. He said ‘Yeah’. Then I saw my manager is nudging Warne. He said it was too spicy, and I can’t tell Sachin. I had only heard about Warnie’s baked beans and all that and he was into stuff like sausages and pizzas. So we ordered pizza for him. That is what he was into but he didn’t want to upset me. He was not too comfortable with spicy food.
Nov 12, 2022 01:26 PM IST
Tendulkar and Lara on feeling ‘invincible’
Lara: Fortunately that never happened to me. I always felt that the bowler had a 78 percent chance of getting me out and it was about survival. Later on I would be able to dominate the opposition and that is when I felt, not invincible, but in control.
Tendulkar: There have been times when you feel nothing can go wrong. There is a thin line between confident and overconfident. There were occasions that you go out and play rash shots. I felt I can go out and play big shots. Sometimes you look at bowlers and know where they are going to bowl. Sometimes they come through and you’re walking back cussing yourself.

If somebody has got a 400 in Test cricket, do I need to say more: Tendulkar
“Brian has always had hunger, consistency, flair… that huge kit bag, even that would not be enough. Out of the conversations I had with him in the 1990’s one point I picked from him was pacing his innings. When you play big innings, there will be patches where you need to accelerate. I thought that ability to score big runs was incredible. If somebody has got a 400 in Test cricket, do I need to say more?” says Tendulkar on Lara.
Nov 12, 2022 01:20 PM IST
Tendulkar recalls his Sydney classic
“It wasn’t decided to not hit a cover drive. My brother had sort of challenged me. He said ‘bowlers are not getting you out. The weakness is your shot selection.’ That’s when I said ‘in this Test match, I am not getting out. Not for 5 days. Australians were trying to get my out and bowl outside off. That’s when I decided that if you are going to challenge me, I am going to challenge you.”
Nov 12, 2022 01:19 PM IST
Lara on Sachin’s Sydney double ton without playing a cover drive
The patience and fortitude he showed. Do doubt that he has a better technique that me from the beginning to end. If I was to score 200 without playing a cover drive, I would be smoking cigar after every innings that I batted.
Nov 12, 2022 01:18 PM IST
I realised I am batting with a genius: Lara
“When we batted, and knocked the ball around, Imran Khan said to one of his fast bowlers, ‘Don’t worry about the line.’ Waqar bowled a ball to Sachin which he sent over the top of the keeper’s head for six. Waqar bowled short, and it was 6-7 blocks behind where the ball landed and that is where I realised that I am batting with a genius.
Nov 12, 2022 01:17 PM IST
When Tendulkar and Lara batted together against Pakistan
Lara: Pakistan had just won the World Cup in 1992. Imran Khan took the team to Canada, me and Sachin had found ourselves in he rest of the world team. It was the Sky Dome, astroturf. When Ambrose and Walsh started bowling, the ball was bouncing and it was a bit dangerous. The captains decided that bowlers can’t run more than 15 yards. We then had to walk out to face Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis, all these guys.
Tendulkar: That is when Brian realised that there can be no friendly match against these guys. I think we scored around 330-340 something. We got into a brilliant partnership, Brian got a hundred, I scored 70-80 not out and we chased those runs in 30-40 overs. Brian realised that those lines don’t exist when they are bowling second.

Lara recalls his first tip to India
I had something similar. I was 14 years old and there was this schoolboy’s tour to India. My father was given 20 barbecue tickets to raise money. Couple of weeks before the barbecue he had sold over 300 tickets. On the day I was leaving, I had my whole entourage with me. I visited India and it was an eye opener for me. That was the fun times.

I’d never worn a jacket before that: Tendulkar on his first tour of England
“I was only 13. My first foreign trip. I had never worn a jacket. And now there was a tie, blazer, shoes. Everyone was at the airport to see me off. I was actually embarrassed. I had more family members than team-members.”
Nov 12, 2022 01:07 PM IST
Tendulkar and Lara speak about their cricket heroes
“He (Sir Viv Richards) called me, had a word with me for 40-45 minutes. Convincing me there is cricket left in me. Those things stay with you forever,” said Tendulkar. Brian Lara says that his first hero was Roy Fredericks, an opening batter like Lara was. “Sir Viv, the confidence he oozed was just amazing. My time with him was very short, he retired shortly after I started. I learnt a lot under him as the captain. I don’t think I had the same skill, he was very destructive. But I learnt about how to use confidence in battles against bowlers,” says Lara.
Nov 12, 2022 01:03 PM IST
Tendulkar was already established when I first met him: Lara
“When I met Sachin, he was already an established teenager. I was playing a lot of ODI by then. Sachin said I was very small, fragile. I had the opportunity to hone my skills in one-dayers. My first impression of Sachin was that I had never seen an Indian batsman so accomplished against fast bowling. Here was a teenager who scored runs against the best teams, bowling attacks in the world. From that day, I measured myself against Sachin,” says Lara.
Nov 12, 2022 01:00 PM IST
Tendulkar recalls meeting Lara for the first time
“The first time I met him was in 1990 in Toronto. I had scored my first Test hundred at the time and just after that there was an exhibition West Indies vs Rest of the World in Toronto. I saw him the hotel lobby first and we connected immediately. Both of us are vertically challenged so that helped, I was not dealing with an Ambrose or a Walsh,” says Tendulkar
Nov 12, 2022 12:54 PM IST
Sachin Tendulkar and Brian Lara take the stage
Both players have captained their respective international sides and are two of the greatest batters the game has ever seen. Tendulkar and Lara retired with astronomical numbers to their name. The Indian great scored 15,921 runs in 200 Tests at an average of 53.78 and 18,426 runs in 463 ODIs at an average of 44.83. Lara, on the other hand scored 11,953 runs in 131 Tests at 52.88 and 10,405 runs in 299 ODIs at an average of 40.48. While Lara is the only batter to have scored 400 runs in a Test innings and over 500 runs in a single first class innings, Tendulkar is the only one to have scored 100 international centuries. They are in conversation with Kunal Pradhan, managing editor, HT.
