Sachin is number one Indian batsman: Walsh
"For me, Sachin has been the number one Indian batsman.
Sometimes he has challenged me and at other times I have done so and we were very competitive. When we catch up there is respect from both sides," stated Walsh, who took 519 wickets in 132 Tests, making him the fifth greatest wicket-taker of all time.
Only Muttiah Muralitharan (800 wickets), Shane Warne (708), Anil Kumble (619) and Glenn McGrath (563) have more wickets than Walsh in Test history.
Walsh was speaking on the occasion of a stand at Sabina Park being named after him on the opening day of the first Test yesterday.
Walsh sees a lot of good in modern-day cricket but feels most of them are not with West Indian cricket.
"Most changes are for good but in the West Indies team, consistency is not there, confidence is not there. There is potential and some are very good fast bowlers. We are working and I am sure we would be back soon," he said.
