9 May 2016 : Sachin Tendulkar, rightly called the ‘god of cricket’, commands immense respect from cricketers across the globe. His work ethics, success, impeccable work and determination have left a mark on millions of people across the world. He is undoubtedly the most revered player. Even after his retirement, he continues to remain the idol for a number of players across the world.
The respect Sachin commands was witnessed in the Vizag stadium on Sunday when cricketer Yuvraj Singh bent down to touch the feet of the Master Blaster. Sachin embraced Yuvi instead. Yuvraj’s gesture was a repeat of his action in Lord’s 2014. Yuvi has immense respect for Sachin and never lets go an opportunity to seek the blessings of his idol.
Seeking the blessings of his idol was all the more important as Yuvraj has just recovered from an injury. Playing from the side of Sunrisers Hyderabad, he scored 39 runs of 23 balls. Sunrisers Hyderabad defeated Mumbai Indians by a good 85 runs in the Sunday match.
The commendable thing was that in the Sunday’s match, Yuvi and Sachin were from different sides. Yet, in true sportsman spirit, Yuvi as always did not miss the chance to show respect to his idol.
