New Delhi. The Indian cricket team has given more than one player to international cricket. Whenever the name of a batsman who has ruled the cricket world for more than two decades is taken, the disappointed faces of the bowlers start appearing. The amazing thing is that this veteran of India, who played 200 Test matches, played the ODI World Cup for the maximum number of times, but he got a chance to kiss the trophy in the last time. Worshiped like the God of the cricket kit, the job of this fanatic was to fix the bats, pads and gloves of the rest of the players in the dressing room.
In the year 1989, the Indian cricket team saw such a cricketer coming on the field, whose age was only 17 years. Sachin Tendulkar made his Test debut in the Karachi Test against arch-rivals Pakistan. After this, in December, he also got a chance to make his ODI debut against Pakistan. Sachin Tendulkar holds the record for most ODI World Cup appearances for India. Whereas in World Cup cricket, he is joint first with former Pakistan captain Javed Miandad.
Sachin used to do repairing work in the dressing room
This thing of master blaster Sachin Tendulkar is well known and he has also told this during some interviews. When there was any problem in any player’s kit in the dressing room, he used to go to Sachin. Sachin used to carry all the equipment needed to repair bats, pads, gloves, and even shoes. During a show, Sachin had told that I always had a habit of fixing bad things. I used to enjoy doing this very much.
Now even after retirement, whenever I stay at home, I do not like to sit empty. I go around the whole house checking everything. I check everything like fan, light, TV. My wife Anjali does not like this and she keeps thinking that everything is fine, why are they following.
