Tendulkar wrote on Twitter: “Love and passion for the game always help you find new ways to practice and especially appreciate what you do. #FlashbackFriday”
In the video, the ‘God of Cricket’ can be seen hitting on a pitch almost completely submerged in water. We see him playing confidently on the back foot as the bowlers try their luck to make the best of the prolific right-handed batsman. Tendulkar recently revealed how he had to beg and plead to open the innings for New Zealand in 1994.
“In 1994, when I started opening the stick for India, the strategy used by all the teams was to save the wickets. What I tried to do was slightly out of the box. I could go ahead and face the opposition bowlers. But I had to beg and beg to give myself a chance. If I fail, I will not follow you again,” he added.
Taking this initiative as an example, Sachin urged his fans never to hesitate to take risks, fearing failure. “In that first game (against New Zealand in Auckland), I scored 82 of 49 balls, so I couldn’t fault it if I would have another chance. They were eager for me to open. But what I’m trying to say here is that there is no fear of failure,” said Mumbaikar, 46.
