Dinesh Karthik who has been part of the Broadcasting unit for the Border Gavaskar Trophy recalled fond memories of him going the watch his first-ever test match in Chennai.  Dinesh Karthik remembered the conversation with a fellow fan where he spoke about the quick running between the wickets of Tendulkar.

“I know vividly. In 1998, my dad took me for the first time to watch a Test match, India vs Australia. I had come to watch one batsman, Sachin Tendulkar. The person sitting next to me, a stranger in the crowd said, you will enjoy watching Sachin Tendulkar bat. But also don’t forget his swift running between the wickets. He runs like a rat who runs after the cheese, but the only difference is he doesn’t get trapped.

Dinesh Karthik who later went to play with the Indian legend on many Internationals and with Mumbai Indians recollected Sachin’s innings where he scored a terrific century against Australia and termed it as one of his good memory.

“Sachin got 155. What an innings that was, I’ll never forget it. So many sixes, one of them came right where we were sitting. We were sitting between long-on and deep midwicket. Great memories,”

India won the match by 179 runs, with Tendulkar being named the player of the match for his unbeaten century knock in the second innings.
