‘I knew I would be playing for India’: Sachin
In a video being circulated on social media, Tendulkar is seen praising the Afghanistan team before sharing his experience with them. “A number of you guys have played IPL, but most of them are bowlers. But the capability of your batting side, nobody has seen much,” he said. The Master Blaster then give an insight into his experience with the Afghanistan team. “We all need some purpose to achieve something. It starts from childhood. I can tell you from my experience, that maybe I was too young but I knew I would be playing for India one day. That’s the advantage of being immature and young because you don’t know the other side of the coin.
“What if something goes wrong? I didn’t even know the number of tournaments that I had to play to play for India. Somehow my heart told it’s gonna happen one day. The question was when?” Tendulkar said as the Afghan players were all ears to the Indian Legend.
