Sachin Tendulkar is one of the most iconic figures in the cricket fraternity. He has done so much for the country by slicing and timing the balls to perfection and in the process, he went about his business and created many records.
Ever since the legendary cricketer’s retirement, people broke into tears and it was difficult to take it to their hearts, especially Sachin fans. They even came to a conclusion that only humans are playing cricket now as the ‘God of cricket’ called it quits from the sport.
His style of play attracted the entire world to look at him. The moment he holds the bat gives us goosebumps and the way he plays straight drives is a class apart. Nowadays, he is quite active on the social media platform, sending congratulatory wishes to Indian athletes, wishing on festival days, sending hearty birthday wishes to cricketers and so on.
However, his recent birthday message on Lasith Malinga took everyone by surprise. Do you want to know what he said? Just read the tweet below. The caption reads, “When it came to batting against #LasithMalinga, I always said … baal ko nahin, ball ko dekho (don’t look at the hair, look at the ball). 😊 Happy birthday, my friend.”
Cricket fans know that Lasith Malinga is a fantastic bowler. He has a curly long hair-style and when he runs fast, his hair bounces which might distract the batsmen if they don’t focus on the ball. When Sachin Tendulkar used to bat, he used to tell himself that not to look at the hair but the ball itself.
