When Ajit Tendulkar saved Sachin from a 'duck'

Paulami Chakraborty / 04 August 2015

The relationship with the big brother is the most weird yet emotional one. You fight with them, try to beat them in every aspect but at the same time respect them and love them, for they provide that support, that shelter you need everytime you seek for it. They love you and care for you truly, and master blaster Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar had a bog brother not very different.

Ajit Tendulkar has always proved to be the ideal one and the man behind his success to some extent as confessed by the legend himself. But here comes this hilarious confession about that care which left everyone catching a laugh in the press release of Sachin’s autobiography “Playing It My Way”.

It was 1999 and there was this rumour that some English players scored ducks but the reason wasn’t thier poor performance. Apparently, they all had duck meat the previous day and that duck resulted in letting them score ducks. Sachin, unaware of the fact entirely, had made some plans of having ‘Aromatic Duck’ the day before a match. As soon as Ajit got to know about the plan, the thought that his own younger brother might get out for a duck as well threatened him. He went straight to him and promptly asked him to cancel the plans.

“In 1999, I read somewhere that a few England players had gone to a restaurant and ate a duck and that the next day, they all scored 0. So, when Sachin planned a dinner around eating an ‘aromatic duck,’ I banned him from doing so!” Ajit said in the interview.
