Mumbai: It is not just the name of a player. This person forced every challenge that tried to push back. Moving forward with the mantra of not stopping, not bowing, Sachin defeated the defeat and won the victory too many times.
By the way, there were many such occasions in Sachin’s life when it seemed that Sachin is going to surrender or give up in the face of challenges just like other players, but he did not let his troubles affect his hard work at all. He just kept on growing and became entitled to ‘Bharat Ratna’, the country’s highest honour.
Failures do not allow dominance
It is said that to become an idol with a stone, even a hammer has to be beaten. One has to do austerity to get to every destination. It was the same with Sachin. Let us explain sequentially, why Sachin is called the one who does not lose heart.
The date was the fifth or the last day of a Tesch match between India and Pakistan. That pitch was ‘green’, which the fast bowlers were getting a lot of benefit from. Due to the dangerous bowling of Wasim Akram, Imran Khan and Waqar Younis, there was a lot of bounce in the ball. The dreaded bowlers of Pakistan troubled the Indian batsmen a lot.
Meanwhile, Waqar Younis comes to the bowl and Sachin Tendulkar, who is short and young, could not play many of his balls. In this case, Waqar stared at Sachin. The next ball hit Sachin Tendulkar’s nose.
The ball straightened on Sachin’s nose and started bleeding from his nose. Navjot Singh Sidhu, standing at the other end, told Sachin that son you retire, come back later. Sachin did not listen to one of them and he said – I will play … Sachin sent the medical team back. On the next ball, Sachin hit a four. What was it then? 15-year-old Sachin Tendulkar played an innings of 57 runs.
