Master blaster Sachin Tendulkar has an unparalleled level of fandom and fans around the world swear by his name. Considered to be the best cricketer of all time, Tendulkar’s greatness is not limited to the past and it has been seen many times in the past that his greatness has been appreciated even by the opposition fans.
Recalling one such incident, Indian cricketer Mohit Sharma told a story in the past. In the last match against Haryana at Lahli, Mohit took Tendulkar’s prize wicket for five runs in the first innings, which was probably the biggest wicket of his cricketing career.
But Mohit’s happiness soon turned to despair as, after the wicket fell, his own fans in the stadium went against him and held him responsible for reducing Tendulkar’s innings.
“Brother Ajay (Jadeja) is very emotional on and off the field. I was bowling when Sachin Paji came to bat. Lahli’s wicket is very conducive to bowling and Ajay Bhai told me to try to play Paji on the front foot. And it just happened like the ball was on the pitch and hit the corner on the way to the stumps, ”said Mohit.
“But as soon as I reached my position, the people who had gathered to watch the match started shouting at me. These were our people and they said I destroyed everything and I was not ashamed that I pulled out that great man and so much more. I was amazed but not completely shocked because this is the villain and his passion and greatness transcends everything, ”the Haryana fast bowler said during the awards function.

Tendulkar’s ability to bounce back and his desire to impart knowledge to the juniors is what defines his greatness, and Mohit felt that the way he batted in the second innings and led Mumbai to the winning line was his personality.
“Playing on a pitch where everyone is struggling, Sachin Paji batted with Telander and scored 75 * to give his team a one-sided victory. This is Sachin Tendulkar and after the innings he came to our dressing room and talked to the players and gave some important tips on how to deal with difficult paths and change the mindset according to the situation, ”said Mohit.
