Sachin Tendulkar’s prowess of carving useful knocks had been a tormenting factor for bowlers across the world. He was among the very batsmen who never panicked under pressure, rather soaked the same and guided his team to safer shores on a number of occasions. No wonder the reasons why is a holder of a plethora of records in all the formats.
The retired Indian cricketer knew how to smother the opposition bowling and frustrate them with his wide array of stroke-play. Most importantly, he mastered the art of answering his critics appropriately. Tendulkar was someone who preferred to let his willow do all the talking. Apart from cricket, the veteran has also shown the expertise of repair-work of several things.
Tendulkar’s non-cricketing talent
“I would just repair. Previously, even in the dressing room, I used to enjoy repairing things. Now, I would take that passion of reconstructing things back home. I would re-work on the paintings, the fan, glass windows. Basically, anything I could put my hand on.
Anjali always asks me why I do this and would never be happy with this thought,” the Master Blaster was quoted as saying on the latest episode of comedian Vikram Sathaye’s podcast, Viu’s What the Duck 3. For this episode, Tendulkar had Virender Sehwag as his company.
The 45-year old has every reason to cheer lately. He hung his boots from international cricket in 2013, but will now see his son, Arjun Tendulkar take baby steps in the world of cricket. Arjun, being the son of a colossus figure as that of Sachin, has always been under the attention of media.
He bowls left-arm fast and has been effective thus far with his skills. Recently, he has been selected in the India U19 team for their tour of Sri Lanka in July-August. This can turn out to be a major break for the youngster as he can shape his career accordingly from now onwards.
