Sachin Tendulkar finds out hotel worker who once gave him batting advice
New Delhi : Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar met with a hotel worker who had once given him a batting advice that turned advantageous for the cricket legend.
19-year-ago, the hotel boy had approached Sachin Tendulkar to point out that his arm swings differently when he wears an arm guard.
Sachin Tendulkar, who was making his name in the cricket that time, changed his armour and got it redesigned according to him.
“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, carried my elbow guard and I re-designed my elbow guard according to the correct size and the amount of padding and I played.”
The meeting apparently took place in early 2001 during the Test series against Australia, when Tendulkar scored 126 in the first innings in Chennai.
The 46-year-old Tendulkar retired in 2013 after scoring more than 34,000 runs in Tests and one-day internationals, including a record 100 centuries.
