new Delhi: Great batsman of India Sachin Tendulkar may have given autographs to his fans and those players with or against whom he has played many times during his cricket career. But an autograph given by him also proved to be a prediction made by him.
In 2007, Sachin gave an autograph to former Australian Chinaman bowler Brad Hogg. On October 5, 2007, during the third match of the ODI series at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad, India had a target of 291 runs to win. Sachin came in that match with Gautam Gambhir to start the innings and Australian bowler Brad Hogg bowled Sachin in the 27th over.
Hogg told that after the match, he went to Sachin to take an autograph on the same picture from him. Sachin gave the autograph with great simplicity, but had also written on the picture that now he will not be able to dismiss him again next time.
Hogg said, ‘I dismissed him in that match and then asked him to give autograph for himself. He gave me the autograph but also wrote a message for me, ‘It will never happen again. Hog ‘
The interesting thing is that the things said by Sachin came out perfectly and the hogs were never able to take Sachin’s wicket again after that. But that is like a precious thing for an autograph hog.
He further said, ‘This is very valuable. It is an honor to play on the field with a player like Sachin Tendulkar. Bowling them is a great experience. If I am there, I am there to compete with them and make life difficult for them. “
Let us tell you that Sachin had scored 43 runs in 71 balls in this match and despite Yuvraj Singh’s century, India had to lose by 47 runs in that match.
