Cricket great Sachin has often credited wife Anjali for having a big impact on his career. While Sachin was scoring runs for India, Anjali, who is a qualified doctor, took care of the family. “I was doing well for India and Anjali stood first in her exam. You know she is a gold medallist doctor so… her career was also flourishing and she was gonna reach a different level but she decided to sacrifice her career so that we could have a family,” Tendulkar had said in 2019 in an interview to India Today.
“She knew that I had to travel and then who’s gonna look after Sara and Arjun? So she graciously decided to take that decision. I don’t think things would have been the same without her contribution and her graciousness. I don’t think I would have been sitting here, no chance.”
On Thursday, Sachin posted a special video with wife Anjali on instagram. In the video, Sachin can be seen sitting in a restaurant. He then holds out a plate with the following lines written on it: “You never know who you’ll meet over a slice”. The camera then pans towards a smiling Anjali who was sitting on the opposite side of the table. The video has gone viral on social media.
On Wednesday, Sachin’s son Arjun slammed a century for Goa against Rajasthan on his Ranji Trophy debut to emulate a feat achieved by his father. Sachin too had scored a century on his Ranji Trophy debut in 1988, when he struck a century against Gujarat as a teenager.
