Though the God of cricket has retired from the game, his memories and his cricketing stories will live forever. In his record-breaking career of 24 years, Sachin has given several interviews about his life beyond 24 yards, but every time he shares his journey, a fresh and funny story pops up. And this time, it is about his wife Anjali, and her stubbornness to never watch him playing in the stadium.
We know that they are an adorable couple, and Anjali always wished that Sachin performs well in every match he plays. But, strangely, she also believed that he would not score well if she comes by to watch him play. Sachin, in an interview on ‘Breakfast with champions‘, says that she is bit superstitious, and moreover, he confessed that Anjali had a special spot at home from where she used to watch him on TV everytime he played.
Though it sounds a bit odd, Sachin even shared an instance which actually proves that being superstitious is sometimes right. He said:
“Anjali never used come to the stadium, so in Australia, in 2004, Anjali comes there… it was the boxing day test match, first ball, Brett Lee is bowling to me, I edged the ball and I’m caught behind. Anjali got up and left. After that she never came. The next time she came was for my last test match.”
Well, one can only be grateful for Anjali for not watching him live because, obviously, who would have wanted to see the Master Blaster being dismissed?
