New Delhi: Every young cricketer considers India’s veteran player Sachin Tendulkar (Sachin Tendulkar) as his role model. At the same time, when someone has seen Tendulkar playing since childhood and then gets a chance to share the same dressing room with him, then it will be nothing less than a dream for that player.
Something like this happened with the captain of the Indian team, Virat Kohli. But after that Yuvraj Singh, Harbhajan Singh, Irfan Pathan and Munaf Patel prank with Virat. Which has been revealed by Sachin Tendulkar.
When Virat Kohli fell on Sachin Tendulkar’s feet
Sachin Tendulkar has told in a YouTube Shaw how Virat Kohli got a place in the team in 2008 when he was pranked by fellow players.
Tendulkar said, ‘When Kohli fell on my feet, I wondered what was happening. When both of them looked back, they were able to see the group of jokers standing and laughing. I did not know what was happening. I asked him ‘what are you doing?’. Told him (to Kohli) that there is no need and such things do not happen. Then he got up and we looked at those people, he started laughing.
In fact, along with Yuvraj Singh and Harbhajan Singh, some players told Virat that as soon as Sachin Paji appears in the dressing room, you fall into his feet. The player who joined the team for the first time takes such blessings from Sachin Tendulkar. This is our tradition. Everyone has played it. Now it’s your turn.
Virat Kohli also told about this incident in Gaurav Kapoor’s Shaw Breakfast with Champions. He had told that in the first two days after the selection, I was thinking how to meet Sachin in the dressing room anyway. These people made fun because I told one of them like this. It was Yuvraj, Munaf, Harbhajan and Irrfan who prank it.
