10 Cricketers who kept the team ahead of their families

Cricketers have always shown that extra passion for the sport, which sometimes also came at the cost of them missing out on their family duties.

The 1999 World Cup gave Sachin Tendulkar the most traumatic moment of his career, as he had to cope with the death of his father. Sachin’s biggest inspiration and greatest source of motivation growing up was his father and it took a lot of time for him to recover from his demise.

But what he did when he heard the news was something not a lot would do. He went back to Mumbai to attend the final rites but came back just on time for the game against Kenya. He scored one of the most emotional centuries in cricket history to propel his side to a much-needed win. Many years after the incident, Tendulkar still continues to inspire people with his dedication.
