Two regrets Sachin Tendulkar has with his cricket career
Mumbai : Sachin Tendulkar is often referred as the god of the cricket and if one look at the achievements in his career, he is surely an inspiration. Be it hitting century of the centuries, playing 200 Test matches for India, Sachin has achieved many can only dream off. Master-blaster is satisfied with all that he received from Cricket, but still he regrets two things.
“I have two regrets. The first is that I have never played with Sunil Gavaskar. Mr Gavaskar was my batting hero when I grew up and not playing with him as part of a team remains a regret. Mr Gavaskar retired a couple of years before I made my debut,” Tendulkar told cricket.com.
Speaking about his another regret, Sachin Tendulkar said that he was fortunate enough to play against his childhood hero Sir Vivian Richards in county cricket, but he never got a chance to face him at the international level.
“My other regret is not having played against my childhood hero Sir Vivian Richards. I was fortunate to have played against him in county cricket, but I still rue not being able to play against him in an international match. Even though Sir Richards retired in 1991 and we have a couple of years overlapping in our careers, we did not get to play against each other,” he added.
Sachin Tendulkar had announced his retirement from cricket in 2013. He still remains the leading run-scorer in international cricket in both forms of the game (Tests and ODIs).
