When Sachin Tendulkar and Anjali Tendulkar had first met, she was practising medicine while Sachin had just begun his cricketing career.She had stated:
“I think what he liked about me was that I knew nothing about cricket when I first met him. But then, me being me, I read everything about the game. I came to know all the fielding positions but he doesn’t like me discussing cricket at home. But at times when he is low or upset, I do talk to him about cricket. Again, it’s not the game but things related to it that we discuss.”
