Right-hand Indian Batsman, Captain of Mumbai Indian Cricket team


Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar is an Indian cricketer widely regarded as one of the greatest batsmen in the history of cricket. He is the leading run-scorer and century maker in Test and One Day International cricket. In 2002, Wisden ranked him the second greatest Test batsman of all time, next to Donald Bradman, and the second greatest one day international (ODI) batsman of all time, next to Viv Richards. In September 2007, the Australian leg spinner Shane Warne rated Tendulkar as the greatest player he has played with or against. Tendulkar was the only player of the current generation to be included in Bradman's Eleven. He is sometimes referred to as Little Master or Master Blaster.

I have just done that and while doing that all this has happened.

 My hand at this moment is not great. I have five stitches on the webbing and on my other hand there is swelling on the little finger. I have to just wait and see if I can hold a cricket bat, and the rest will follow. But the first thing I have to see is whether I will be able to hold a cricket bat and take the impact, because the stitches won't come off for the next eight days. I have to give my best and hope for the best.
