Sachin Tendulkar (Born on 24th April 1973) is a former captain and international cricketer of india. People consider him the God of cricket.
His team mates call him Sir and when he bats in the field there is one voice, all around Sachin! Sachin! Here he comes! Born on 24th April 1973 to Rajni and Ramesh Tendulkar.Ramesh Tendulkar named his sonafter his favorite music director. After the music director, Sachin Dev Burman.
This boy was named Sachin. The young boy intended to do something else. He was going to be famous in the field of sport and not music. Who knew he would create a sensation in the world of cricket at a young age.
Sachin Tendulkar’s elder brother Ajit Tendulkar encouraged him a lot. Sachin Tendulkar used to practice at the net for hours as a child and his teacher, Achrekar, used to place a one rupee coin on top of the stumps. The challenge was that, the bowler who bowled him out he would take the coin.
If Sachin wasn’t bowled out,he would take the coin and thus, Sachin has thirteen coins which he considers his biggest award.At 16, Sachin Tendulkar debuted in international cricket and his first test was against the Pakistani team. The Pakistani bowlers did their best against Sachin and during the match, a bouncer hit him on the nose and he began to bleed.
But disregarding his pain this young cricketer who was just 16, then kept on playing. It is believed when the tiger is wounded he becomes even more dangerous. That’s what happened to Sachin. The bouncer certainly did injure Sachin. But Sachin thrashed the ball so thoroughly later that all the bowlers remember whether it was Shane Warne, or Moorlitharan Glen Mc Graw, or Macdonald.
The story of their defeat can be heard via Sachin Tendulkar’s records. Whether it was a record of a hundred centuries, or the first cricketer, who made 200 hundred runs in one day cricket. Sachin Tendulkar has every possible record to his credit. Sachin is the first player who reached ten thousand runs in one day internationals. After ten, it was eleven,twelve, thirteen, fourteen and the count increased.
Sachin Tendulkar reached eighteen thousand runs. There was a time, when Sachin used to play alone and everyone returned to the pavilion. Australians still remember their defeat on the field at Sharjah. Team leading is about winning matches. It’s not about breaking records and very soon, Sachin became a vice captain.
From a vice captain to a captain. But his captaincy didn’t sit well with the Indian team. Sachin’s senior player Mohammad Azharuddin said it once. That, we won’t win under Sachin as a captain. The young one is not destined to win. One on hand, Sachin was breaking every record. On the other hand, he was looking into affairs of the heart. And he lost his heart to Dr. Anjali.
He married her, on 26th May 1995. Sachin and Anjali have 2 children. A daughter Sarah, who was born on 12nd October in 1997. And a son Arjun who was born on 24th September 1999. A point to be noted is that Anjali is 6 years older than Sachin. In the interim, Sachin’s criticsalso said that he should retire. Sachin often responded to that with his bat. But when the pressure is too much then, Sachin responds most humbly to it. I think, I have to decide,when I am going to retire. Because, when I got into cricket,no one else decided it.
I have played with the guidance of my coach my family and my balance. Those who advise me to retire never brought me onto the team. Sachin not only endorsed the biggest brands, in fact he’s won the biggest tournaments, too. The 2011 World Cup victory ranks highest amongst these. After 28 years India lift the World Cup.” “Sachin had dreamt of this, from childhood that he would win the World Cup for the Indian team.”
And in 2011, when he won the world cup, he shed tears. And the entire country cried for joy, with him. Were you able to control your tears? They are tears of joy.They are tears of joy so I wouldn’t mind, you know, crying. And, when little children ask him we want to play cricket, too please give us some tips, too.
Sachin responds to them in this manner. My only tip to you, is, chase your dreams. You need to dream. If you dream of a dream for a year, chase it and work hard and enjoy the dream. Come on. Don’t find shortcuts, there will be difficult phases, also. Don’t worry about that,just enjoy the game. Play with your heart. And live positively. The world has always asked him lots of questions. But, Sachin never speaks, personally. His bat speaks for him. And it tells everyone to dream. Dreams will come true.
