This Man Changed God Of Cricket’s Decision To Quit The Game In 2007

Cricket teams have tightened their belts to compete with each other in ICC World Cup 2019. All the nations' teams have been reached England to win the trophy of 12th edition of World cup.

Indian fans are looking forward to see the game of not only Virat Kohli's team but also to seenation’s three legends Sourav Ganguly, Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag together in the commentary box. They were the part of the team India when India lifted the cup in 2011 at Wankhede stadium.

Sachin Tendulkar tweeted: " Best moment of my cricketing life"

But we might not be lucky to watch his game more as the cricketer decided to hang up his gloves way back in 2007. God of cricket while talking to a portal revealed: “I felt that was it. At that stage, a lot of things happening around Indian cricket were not at all healthy. We needed some changes and I felt if those changes did not happen then I was going to quit cricket.”

He further said that “I was almost 90 per cent sure of quitting cricket. But my brother told me in 2011 there is World Cup final in Mumbai, can you imagine holding that beautiful trophy in your hand?”

There were two man who changed his decision. One was his brother and other was his role model Sir Vivian Richards’ phone call. Only one phone call helped him change his mind about taking retirement back in year 2017.

Sachin also revealed: “After that, I went away to my farmhouse and that is when I got a call from Sir Viv, saying I know there is plenty of cricket left in you. We had a conversation for about 45 minutes and that was so heartwarming because when your batting hero calls you it means a lot. That was the moment things changed for me and from that moment onwards I also performed much much better.”
