How Sachin Tamed Temptations Before Bowlers

Pune, Jun 19 (PTI) The thought of bunking practice for spicy, mouth-watering "Vadapavs" used to cross the mind of a school-going Sachin Tendulkar but the respect he had for his father stopped him from succumbing to such temptations.

"I too felt like bunking the practice session while in school and go out to eat 'Vadapav' and have fun as most children do. But I never wanted to misuse the freedom given by my father who wanted me to pursue my interest in cricket with full focus and had never bothered me by putting pressure on me to achieve academic success.

"My coach and my brother too ensured that I did not lose my focus on the game which I loved passionately," said the batting legend in an interview telecast by a Marathi television channel.
