Sourav Ganguly, the ex-Indian cricketer who took India cricket to a new height, has revealed an interesting thing about Sachin Tendulkar. He said that Sachin needed him to take the first strike during any match. The BCCI president, Ganguly persuaded him for the principal ball. However, the Master Blaster thought of different reasons and didn’t move.

Ganguly and Tendulkar wounded various groups as a couple, particularly in ODI cricket. The amazing batting pair amassed 8,227 runs, in 50 overs matches. At a normal of 47.55 from 176 matches with 29 50 years stands and 26 century.

The 47-year-old Ganguly made the disclosures about Tendulkar while addressing Mayank Agarwal on the last’s show.

Sachin had two answers, said Ganguly

He had two responses to that, one if his structure was acceptable. He accepted that it should proceed and he ought to be at the non-striker’s end. And on the off chance that he was out of the structure. At that point, he used to state that Ganguly should remain at the non-striker’s end since it takes the weight.

β€œYes, he always asked me to take the strike. He always had an answer to that, I used to tell him that sometimes you also face the first ball, always I take the strike,” Ganguly was quoted as saying during the chat, uploaded by the BCCI on its Twitter handle.

He had a response to both great and inappropriate behavior. Until and except if a batsman went past him and remained at the non-striker’s end. And the match was at that point on TV and afterward, he would be compelled to take the strike, it happened on more than one occasion, stated Ganguly.

Ganguly and Sachin’s pairing could be understood that among the current cricket pairs, none are comparable to these two. These two are a great pair in the world of cricket. Aaron Finch and David Warner have 3,297 runs together, however, are not even most of the way towards Sachin and Ganguly’s count.

Most definitely, Sachin is as of now the main run-scorer in global cricket, storing up more than 34,000 runs. Undoubtedly, he went to get one of India’s best skippers.
