3.Soul’ behind his success-

Sachin’s elder brother, Ajit Tendulkar, the soul inspiration of Sachin, was also a cricketer. He played school cricket for Balamohan and participated in Harris Shields, one of the most reputed tournaments in junior level. Though, he could not make it to the first class cricket matches, he played cricket together with former India wicketkeeper Chandrakant Pandit and former India opener Lalchand Rajput. Ajit, though could not make a mark as a successful cricketer, he surely played his part in creating the greatest batsman of our generation.

4. Family:

For Sachin and Anjali, it was love at first sight. The two first met at the Mumbai International Airport. Sachin was returning from his first International cricket tour in 1990 while Anjali was at the airport to receive her mother. Later, the two met at a common friend’s place and got to know each other better. The couple tied the knot after 5-year-long courtship i.e. on May 24th , 1995.

Anjali is the daughter of Gujarati industrialist Anand Mehta, a seven-time national bridge champion and British social worker Annabel Mehta. Anjali Tendulkar is known for not to eat or drink anything when Sachin is on the crease. The couple has two children, Sara Tendulkar and Arjun Tendulkar. Sachin's daughter 'Sara' is named after the first tournament when Sachin won as a captain - 'Sahara' Cup in 1997.
