The Master Blaster, Sachin Tendulkar, yet again was into the headlines, this time with his pen. The cricket fraternity across the globe have waited two months for November 5, the launching date of his autobiography–’Playing it My Way’. The ex-Indian cricketer unveiled his book at a grand ceremony in the presence of his family members, first coach and former colleagues in Mumbai.
It was anticipated that the book would highlight his early days as a young cricketer, his decorated career as one of the most successful player of the sport until his retirement in 2013. However, the chapters he penned down are supposedly more controversial than expected by any cricket fan of India. Be it the Greg Chappell issue or the ‘Monkeygate’ or his captaincy the book revolves around all the negative occurrences during the golden era of Indian cricket which were not out of the dressing room till now.
Until the day of the book launch, no cricketer had ever spoken about those issues, nevertheless a couple of them like Zaheer Khna, Harbhajan Singh and Saurav Ganguly, who were directly related to them, indeed spoke out this time.
We bring you all the bits and pieces of the book that you should know as a “Sachin fan” or “Indian cricket lover”.
Tough time with Chappell
Who Said What?
