Sachin Tendulkar, the legendary Indian cricketer, has played many great innings including the two innings which he played at Sharjah in the Coca Cola tournament. In 1998, Master Blaster played a smashing innings of 143 runs and every cricket fan got awestruck with the brilliance that he showed in his innings. That innings has been named as The Desert Storm considering the fact that the temperature in Sharjah was 41 degree Celsius at that moment.
In the next match which was the final of the tournament, Sachin again scored a century and his 134 runs helped India in winning the match. He was already every youngster’s favourite at that time and after this tournament, every aspiring cricketer wanted to become next Sachin Tendulkar.
Indian cricketer Suresh Raina was also a great fan of Sachin and recently during an interview, he said that he used to bunk his school for watching the innings of Little Master. Raina revealed that he was just 12 years old when Sachin played the memorable innings in Sharjah and he along with his friends used to watch the innings of Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid only. He also said that after Sachin got out, he used to leave for his home. He also told what kept him excited in those times was Little Master’s batting with the commentary of Tony Greig.
Later on, Suresh Raina not only shared dressing room with Sachin Tendulkar but he and Sachin were also a part of the team which won the 2011 ICC ODI World Cup under the captaincy of MS Dhoni.
However, the Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh made up mind to troll Raina when he questioned the latter over his claim of bunking school as Turbanator said that the match started at 4 pm while schools in India got over by 2-3 pm.
Bhajji tweeted, “School bunk 🙄😄 how ? That game started at 4 pm indian time 😜I was part of the series”
