Among all things, Sachin also talked about his wife Anjali, who has been a pillar to his success. Moreover, he has always talked about her highly and credited her for all his success.

It has been a common scenario where wives and girlfriends come to the stadium – to cheer beloved ones. Recently, in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL), we have witnessed the wives of Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Virat Kohli, Suresh Raina respectively showing their support during the matches.

Anjali, however, didn’t came to the stadium to support his husband. During the chat, Sachin made an interesting revelation that because of her superstitions she didn’t come to the stadium.

Sachin recalled an incident about his wife that once upon a time, cricketers wives had asked her to come to the stadium but she refused them by saying that she’s superstitious.

However, Sachin didn’t like his family to come to the stadium as it distracts his focus. The Mumbaikar also told that Anjali said that she doesn’t want to come.

Sachin said that ‘when the ladies insisted her to join them and also promised her that they will hide her from Sachin eyes. Later, she agreed to come with them.

Later, Anjali came to the stadium during the farewell Test for Sachin Tendulkar in Mumbai.
