Cricket has helped me earn the love of my coun­try­men

Sportstar - - 40 SUPERSTARS -

Only In­dian with two triple hun­dreds in Test cricket Igame had to play cricket. What else could I have done? It is the

I had al­ways wanted to play af­ter watch­ing Sachin Ten­dulkar in ac­tion.

Cricket has given me ev­ery­thing that I could have asked for. It has helped me earn the love of my coun­try­men. In my time, dur­ing my for­ma­tive years, Sport­star was a much­loved mag­a­zine. We would wait for the mag­a­zine every week and look for what­ever had been writ­ten about us. It was a su­perb mag­a­zine and I took pride when­ever I found my name in it. The mag­a­zine had some se­nior writ­ers and praise from them would be a huge mo­ti­va­tion. Sport­star was my favourite mag­a­zine and it was the best of the lot. I still have some is­sues in my col­lec­tion. It is great to know that Sport­star had crossed 40 years of ser­vice to sport. I wish Sport­star all the best.
