Mumbai Indians (MI) have started IPL 2022 on a disappointing note as they have lost both their opening games so far. One of the dominant teams in the tournament is still in search of its first win of the season. MI skipper, Rohit Sharma has played a key role in his leadership to guide MI to win 5 IPL titles. He has been also a pillar of strength for the team with his terrific batting.
Speaking at a recent event, Rohit Sharma revealed that Sachin Tendulkar has been his inspiration for him since childhood and also praised the behavior of the former cricketing great on and off the field.
As per the quotes in NDTV, Rohit Sharma said, “My inspiration has always been Sachin Tendulkar. Since I was, I think eight or nine years I started watching him and what he’s done in his career. When it comes to playing cricket, I don’t think anyone can achieve that. And, over the period of 25 years, he has managed to carry the entire responsibility of the team on his shoulder. It is not easy.”
He further added, “So, for me, he is the one and I always followed him as to what he’s done in his career, how he’s carried himself, on and off the field. And the most striking thing about him is his humility towards life, not in just cricket, but he is very humble as a person. After achieving so much, it’s not easy to stay humble, but he’s managed to do so.”
Sachin Tendulkar has played for Mumbai Indians from the inaugural season to 2013 when he announced his retirement.
