A cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar said he had two regrets in life, despite a famous career spanning more than two decades, where he played 200 tests and 463 ODIs, marking the 51st and 49th centuries, respectively.
“I have two regrets. The first is that I never played with Sunil Gavaskar. Gavaskar was my hero when I grew up and I didn’t play with him as part of a team, it’s a pity. Gavaskar retired a few years before I made my debut.” Tendulkar told cricket.com.
Tendulkar, who retired from international cricket in 2013 after scoring 15,921 test runs and is still the leading scorer in international cricket in tests and ODI, added that his second regret was that he could not play “against” my childhood hero Sir Vivian Richards “.
“My other regret is that I didn’t play against my childhood hero Sir Vivian Richards. I was lucky enough to play against him in county cricket, but I’m still sorry I couldn’t play against him in an international match.
“Although Sir Richards retired in 1991 and we have two years overlapping in our careers, we have not been able to play against each other,” he added.
