Sachin Tendulkar , an emotion and not just a cricket player says Virat
Sachin Tendulkar is regarded as ‘god of cricket’ in India. The Master Blaster is arguably the greatest batsman India has ever produced.
Sachin’s contribution towards Indian cricket is not just the runs he scored, the wickets he took or the records he created- but also how he carried the expectations of his countrymen.
India’s current cricket captain Virat Kohli among those who were inspired and influenced by Tendulkar. Kohli, who is a self-proclaimed Sachin fan, recently spoke about his perception of the Master Blaster and how Sachin changed the way cricket is looked at in the country.
Kohli expressed his feelings about Sachin’s influence in the most beautiful way.
“Sachin Tendulkar was someone who changed the way everyone looked at the sport in this country. He was literally an emotion and not just a cricket player,” said Kohli.
Kohli said this on the first episode of National Geographic’ documentary series Mega Icons. The first episode of the series featuring Kohli aired on television on September 24.
