With this, Sachin Tendulkar even revealed the mystery behind the iconic chant ‘Sachin…Sachin’. It’s not the fans who started it!
My mother started it actually. I used to go play downstairs and to call me back home, mother would call ‘Sachin Sachin’, Sachin told.
He further added,
I never thought ‘Sachin Sachin’ (chant) would continue beyond my playing days. It has now gone to the theatres. So I feel happy.
There is an iconic picture of a young Tendulkar holding a bat. When asked about the picture, Sachin said,
This was actually taken at home when I was playing with my brother. This was in the balcony. I was only four or five then. My positions weren’t perfect. What I enjoyed was, hitting the ball. Be it a cricket bat or a tennis racket. My brother would chuck tennis ball, few I used to hit from cricket bat, few from rackets.
So, finally, we know from where this iconic chant ‘Sachin…Sachin’ came!
