London, Oct 5 (UNI) Decribing him as the ''best in the business'', legendary spinner Shane Warne has put master blaster Sachin Tendulkar at the top of the list of world's best 100 Test cricketers in his book 'Shane Warne's century' which also includes nine other Indians.

Amongst players with or against whom he has played, Warne's list also includes Sourav Ganguly, Rahul Dravid, VVS Laxman, Harbhajan Singh, Virender Sehwag, Anil Kumble, Kapil Dev, Mohammad Azharuddin, Dilip Vengsarkar and Ravi Shastri.

The list in Warne's book released on October 2 is almost identical with the one the 'The Times' newspaper published last year.

In his book, Warne described Tendulkar as a ''genius'' and ''best in the business'' who has an amazing discipline.

Tendulkar is followed by West Indian great Brian Lara.

''Tendulkar has a touch of genius about him. He is the best in the business. Being quick and decisive means that he either goes all the way forward or back on the crease, but doesn't get caught in two minds.

''I have found it difficult at times to deceive him because he reads the length and the spin so quickly,'' Warne wrote in book about Tendulkar.

Former India captain Ganguly also features in the list and is at the 96th spot.
