Sachin Tendulkar is undoubtedly the most loved cricketer the world has ever seen. Whether he is the greatest batsman of all time might be a matter of debate, but there is no argument when it comes to the cricketer with the most number of fans. That in itself might make one high-headed, but not this guy.
Recently, he opened up on the two regrets he had in his career. While it’s hard to believe that the man who wrote his own scripts can have regrets, these two things were out of his hands. “I have two regrets. The first is that I have never played with Sunil Gavaskar. Mr Gavaskar was my batting hero when I grew up and not playing with him as part of a team remains a regret. Mr Gavaskar retired a couple of years before I made my debut,” Tendulkar told a website.
“My other regret is not having played against my childhood hero Sir Vivian Richards. I was fortunate to have played against him in county cricket, but I still rue not being able to play against him in an international match. Even though Sir Richards retired in 1991 and we have a couple of years overlapping in our careers, we did not get to play against each other,” he added.
