Indore. Cricket is such a game in which many interesting and exciting moments come during the field and match which are recorded in history. But sometimes even without a match, such stories happen which leave their mark on everyone’s mind. This is what happened in Indore Holkar Stadium But when the master blaster called the God of Cricket Sachin Tendulkar asked for a priceless historical gift from his pitch curator Samandar Singh. When Sachin himself made this request, even the curators could not refuse and he happily handed over his precious heritage to him.
Sachin Tendulkar has once again proved why he is called the God of the cricket world. Sachin Tendulkar is in Indore these days along with all the great cricketers of the country and the world. The Road Safety World Series International cricket tournament is starting here from today. Today the first match is between the teams of India and New Zealand. Before both the teams were practicing, an interesting incident happened on the field.
Went to get autograph…
When former cricket stars were practicing on the field, pitch curator Samandar Singh also reached there to meet Sachin Tendulkar. He was holding the historic ball in his hand, which was beaten by Sachin on 24 February 2010 at the Roop Singh Stadium in Gwalior, scoring the first double century of ODI cricket. That was his first double century of international cricket. The wicket of Gwalior on which Sachin scored 200 runs was also prepared by Samandar Singh. Samandar Singh wanted to get Sachin’s autograph on that ball. He expressed his years old wish in front of Sachin and requested him to give autograph on that ball.
Sachin asks for a gift
But here the bet backfired. Seeing that historic ball, Sachin Tendulkar could not stop himself. He asked for that ball from Samandar Singh on the contrary. Sachin wanted to keep her with him. Now if Sachin himself was asking for a gift, how could Samandar Singh avoid talking about him. Samandar Singh immediately handed over the ball to Sachin.
Sachin will bring a gift for Samandar Singh
Sachin did not return Samandar Singh empty handed. Sachin Tendulkar is preparing to give a return gift to Samandar Singh in exchange for this ball. He asked Samandar Singh Chauhan the foot number to bring shoes from UK and is going to give him a T-shirt today. Pitch curator Samandar Singh Chauhan says it was the most memorable moment in his life, when such a big personality not only asked me but also my family and children’s well being. It was a very emotional moment. I wanted to get his autograph on his double century ball. But he only asked for that ball, now how could I refuse him.
