Sachin has an amazing instinct: Aamir KhanJune 3rd, 2008 - 7:47 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, June 3 (IANS) Actor-director Aamir Khan, who is leaving no stone unturned to give his nephew Imraan Khan a grand launch with “Jaane Kyun…Ya Jaane Na”, is smitten by ace cricketer Sachin Tendulkar. At the final Indian Premier League (IPL) match between Rajasthan Royals and Chennai Super Kings held in Mumbai Sunday, Aamir was seated next to Sachin.
“The match was certainly exciting but what made it a unique experience for me was that I had Sachin next to me,” Aamir wrote in his latest blog entry.
The actor is totally in awe of Sachin, who, according to Aamir was able to predict every ball before it was bowled.
“‘He is going to bowl a bouncer next’, ‘This one is going to be a slower one’, ‘Full tilt outside the off stump’, ‘Next one will be a yorker’, ’short of length’ - it was uncanny. He got it right each time. No wonder it’s so difficult to bowl to him. He has an amazing instinct.”
Apparently, Sachin also shared his logic for each prediction with Aamir.
“I won’t share it (the logic) with you as I don’t want to reveal how his mind works.
“But all of us were dumbfounded with his instinct and his acumen. So at the end of it I told him next time we watch a film together, I’m going to tell him what is going to happen next!”
