New Delhi: Admitting that playing against India brings out the best in him, West Indian all-rounder Dwyane Bravo today said Sachin Tendulkar's precious scalp is his Holy Grail.

''Sachin (Tendulkar) is in a league of his own. He's so very hard to bowl at as he gives you no room for error,'' Bravo told UNI here.''I can still recall how he blasted me away for a six with ease in the DLF Cup. Now that's the kind of batsman you would like to bowl to, if you love challenges. It is his wicket that I would relish most,'' he added.

However, when asked who was the better of two -- Brian Lara or Sachin -- he steered clear off the debate.''You can't compare the two. One is a right-hander another is a left-hander. They have different styles of playing,'' he said and, with a smile, added, ''they have many similarities too. Both of them have rewritten record books. Both of them can bat other teams out and more importantly, we all love when they play well. Its good for cricket.''

Bravo, who scripted the West Indies' 4-1 series win over Rahul Dravid's side with his all-round performance at home, said he relishes playing against India.''They are a great and competitive side and I enjoy playing against them. They bring out the best in me,'' he said.

Bravo also said it was unfair to compare him with great Sir Gary Sobers but made no secret of his desire to emulate the legendary all-rounder's success.''Its blasphemous. You can't compare me with Sir Gary Sobers.At least not now. Maybe over a period of time I would like to achieve what he, Imran Khan and Kapil Dev achieved,'' he said.
