Sachin Tendulkar taught me so much- Virender Sehwag
Virender Sehwag stated that the legendary batter Sachin Tendulkar used to be his gym partner. Sehwag pointed out how Sachin Tendulkar used to guide him during the tough phases of the match.
“I used to be Sachin Tendulkar’s gym partner. He taught me so much in life. He taught me about hardships and practice. He would predict a bowler’s length and give me a cue.
When asked how he know, he’d say, ‘I have now played for so many years that I can predict how he is trying to get you out with a fuller length’. The next ball would be a full-length delivery only,”
