He started his cricketing career at a tender age of 16 back in 1989 when India had toured Pakistan. At such a young age, Sachin had to face the likes of Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis, and others who had comprised of a fierce bowling unit back then. He hung up his boots from international cricket in 2013 after an illustrious 24-year career. The Little Master will once again be taking to the cricket field in Road Safety World Series in 2020.

Sachin Tendulkar's humanitarian call

The Master Blaster revealed that he was really excited to be back on the field and playing with his opening partner and former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag. Talking about the significance of road safety, Sachin Tendulkar gave an example from his childhood to incite the necessity to follow rules. Sachin Tendulkar asked the people to fill their 'piggy banks' with blessings by following the rules just like how children saved money. Citing another example, Sachin Tendulkar said that elderly people should be helped if they were unable to cross the road on their own and asked the drivers and riders to stop their vehicles in order to let the senior citizens cross. Sachin Tendulkar pointed out that over 200,000 people die every year due to road accidents and that one person died every four minutes because of the same issue. 

"We are lacking patience. Everyone wants everything to happen right away. From my experience, you can have either right or now but it is impossible to have it right now. Patience is one thing we are all lacking", said Sachin Tendulkar.
