Having a cool head on the shoulders is very important to excel in any game. A sudden outburst of emotions can not only prove harmful for the player but it can also hurt his team’s chances. And probably this is the reason that legendary batsman Sachin Tendulkar constantly performed with the bat on the highest level for more than two decades. With an expectation of over 100 crores people, Sachin always kept his nerve under control and never lost his temperament on the field. A man who rather let his bat do the talking than his mouth he rarely showed his emotions on the field. The owner of almost every batting record in the world, Tendulkar’s greatness lies in his Simplicity. In the past 24 years of his Cricket career, Sachin Tendulkar has kept his feet grounded even after his great achievements.
In this video, you all will see that even modern greats like Mathew Hayden and Ricky Ponting failed to keep their emotions under check after being mistakenly hit by the bowlers but when it happened with Tendulkar, he showed the world why it is called gentleman’s game.
The incident happened during India’s 2008 of Australia. Fast bowler Brett Lee bowled a nasty beamer at Sachin Tendulkar. Tendulkar somehow managed to avoid injury. Brett Lee approached Tendulkar for an apology and Tendulkar, being a gentleman, accepted Lee’s apology.
