Want to be a professional cricketer?
Former India Cricketer Sachin Tendulkar first look of his auto biography is all set launch his own biography “Playing It My Way” in an event in Mumbai on Movember 6. Sachin, who played his last International match in November last year, has been working on his auto biography since then. When asked about the details, Sachin refused to drop his words and said he wanted to maintain silence so that it does not affect the release of the book.
He also quoted that “The work on it has started. If I give out the details of it, then who will read it? When the time is appropriate, I will let you know (more about it),” Sachin said during the event.
Tendulkar, who retired from all forms of cricket last year amid huge reception from fans while playing his 200th Test match against the West Indies, said that writing was definitely not an easy job as it required a lot of practice and hard work. “Writing, much like batting, needs ample practice, the right technique and execution,” he said.
Judging by the Master Blaster’s recent comments about how he wrote letters to Mrs. Anjali, his wife during his cricket career had been more difficult than batting, his family life including his son Arjun and daughter Sara, is expected to feature prominently in the book.
“When I started playing cricket, there were no mobile phones. So writing letters to my parents and later on to my wife Anjali became one of the ways to stay connected with near and dear ones. Hitting a cricket ball came naturally to me. But, while writing letters to Anjali, I have to doubly check what I was writing,” Tendulkar had said without holding back.
