India watches with bated breath when Sachin Tendulkar comes out to bat but one man prefers to go on a long drive just to avoid seeing him live in action.
And that man happens to be the maestro’s own elder brother Ajit with whom he discusses every aspect of the game.
“He does not watch my matches. I have been told by friends that he goes on a long drive alone, where there is no radio, there is nothing, and he comes back only after the match is over,” Tendulkar revealed.
“Later, a recording is pulled out and then he and I discuss where improvements can be made in my batting and what mistakes I committed. All this discussion happens then,” he said.
“Because I speak to him every evening and on a daily basis we discuss what sort of preparation should be made for a match and what are the mistakes to be avoided, and this is a habit I have since school cricket and I still use this formula,” he added.
The veteran right-hander also thanked his wife Anjali for supporting him at the expense of her own medical career.
“I think my problem is that I am not expressive on the face. But she knows my style, what I want to say, what I am feeling, what I am thinking, she knows and she understands,” Tendulkar told News24 channel.
