Mangalore: Former Zimbabwean skipper Heath Streak on Saturday said he found Sachin Tendulkar’s defence difficult to breach. He said Tendulkar was the most difficult batsman that he ever bowled to after Australian opener Matthew Hayden and West Indian great Brian Lara.

Streak said Sachin has been a brilliant ambassador of the game and he will do the same in his new innings as a Member of Parliament in the Rajya Sabha. "Sachin has been successful in whatever he has done so far and [I am] certain that he would do the same in his new innings [as an MP]," he said. "I am certain that he would have a positive influence on society," he added.

Streak said Tendulkar has always carried huge expectations of fans and today is no different. According to him, the same added pressure is not allowing him to score freely in this edition of the IPL.
