Popularly known as God of cricket Sachin Tendulkar has recently come up with an emotional appeal that shows what a soft heart cricketer carries. Tendulkar still has sentiments for his first car that he got from his own hard-earned money after entering the professional world of cricket. The ace batsman was much fond of cars from a young age, and his collection of dashing cars has always been talk of the town.
Master Blaster is connected to one other sport to which he catches up during his leisure time, and that is table tennis. Former cricketer now wishes to have his first car back due to the sentiments attached to it and has urged people to contact him if they have whereabouts of the same.
On special episode ‘In the Sportlight’ by Mudit Dani, the former cricketer spoke– “My first car was a Maruti 800. Unfortunately, it is not with me right now. I would love to have it back again with me. So, people listening to me, feel free to contact and get in touch.”
Little Master’s craze for luxury cars began when he was too young, and use to stand in his home’s balcony with his brother in order to spot classy cars.
Master Blaster reminisces his early days
“There was a massive open drive-in movie hall near my house where people used to park their cars and watch the movie, sitting in it. So I, along with my brother, used to stand in our balcony for hours to watch those cars.”
Having stroll down the memory lane, Sachin recalled his favourite incident relating to the car. He shared the same spot as that of Sunil Gavaskar whom legendary cricketer use to idolize all the while. He remembered playing for Mumbai the first time and termed it as ‘unreal experience’.
“I was standing right in front of the dressing room (as a ball boy), so I could observe how players prepare themselves for the game. Later, I got invited by my hero Gavaskar in the dressing room.
I still remember he was sitting on the last seat right in the corner and coincidently I also ended up sitting on the same spot when I started playing Ranji Trophy cricket. It was a coincidence to share the same spot as your hero but a magnificent coincidence,” concluded the magnificent player.
