Sachin shared an interesting story

Ahead of Sourav Ganguly’s birthday, Sachin Tendulkar had shared an interesting anecdote with PTI in an interview. He said:

I remember Sourav was sleeping during an afternoon. Jatin Paranjpe, Kedar Godbole and I filled his room with water. He woke up and was naturally clueless about what was happening, his suitcases were floating. Finally, he realised it was me, Jatin and Kedar who had done it.”

Sachin added that his times with his former teammate were even more fun during their first-ever foreign trip to the UK by stating. He said:

“We stayed in schools that were like old castles and naturally it looked a bit scary. To make things worse, friends would get together and plan to scare the others even more. Years later, when I think back, these are the moments of friendship that stand out and make me smile.”
