Sachin Tendulkar reveals how his Tamil knowledge helped his cricket

Sachin Tendulkar is without any doubt the greatest batsman ever in the history of cricket and the gentleman's passion for the game is such that in spite of his stature tries to stay close to the game even now.

Tamil Nadu and India cricketer Hemang Badani has shared a video in which Sachin explains how his knowledge of Tamil helped him break Tamil Nadu's strategy against him when playing for Mumbai.

In the video clip Sachin in a lighter vein explains that during Mumbai vs TN Sachin used to stand outside the crease to unsettle the bowlers and captain Hemang Badani will tell his bowlers in Tamil to bowl "Munnaadi" or "Pinaadi" (Front or Back). Little did Badani know that Sachin after playing fifteen years of cricket with the Tamil Nadu players knew what he meant and used to adjust his footwork to play his shots. Well that is the God of Cricket for you folks, do enjoy the story in Sachin's own words in the video below.
