Leg­endary Sachin calls back the past

The Citizen (KZN) - - Sport - New Delhi

– A ho­tel worker whose un­so­licited ad­vice helped the bat­ting of cricket leg­end Sachin Ten­dulkar has been lo­cated af­ter the In­dian su­per­star launched an ap­peal.

The worker ap­proached Ten­dulkar about 19 years ago at the ho­tel where he worked in Chen­nai, say­ing he had no­ticed he swung his bat dif­fer­ently when he was wear­ing an arm guard.

Ten­dulkar, who was mid­way through his record-break­ing ca­reer at the time, said the ad­vice was valu­able as he re­designed his arm guard and went from strength to strength.

“I don’t think I had spo­ken about this to any­one in the world. I was the only per­son who was aware of that,” he said in a video posted on Twit­ter.

“Af­ter that I ac­tu­ally came back to the room from the ground car­ry­ing my el­bow guard and I went on to re-de­sign it ac­cord­ingly.” – AFP
