Tendulkar’s ‘most embarrassing moment’ not captured on camera!June 3rd, 2009 - 12:09 am ICT by IANS
Kolkata, June 2 (IANS) Sachin Tendulkar in tie without a shirt, in socks without shoes and with a towel wrapped around him! This would have been any shutterbug’s dream photo. But luckily for the Indian cricket star, there was no lensman to capture him in that “most embarrassing moment”.
The year was 1992, and Tendulkar was then turning out in the English county cricket for Yorkshire.
“In Yorkshire we had a Sunday Club. For fun one Sunday we decided on a particular dress. We were all with ties without shirts and socks without shoes. It was the most embarrassing and funniest moment. Fortunately I could not capture it on camera,” Tendulkar told newspersons at a programme organised by leading camera manufacturer Canon India.
Tendulkar also termed the Test against England in Chennai last December as one of the most memorable ones of his life.
“The way we played and made a comeback was special. We won the match on the last day. We did not play well on the first three days.
“From the post lunch session fourth day we turned things around. I scored a hundred which gave me one of the most memorable moments of my career,” he said.
“Always a terrific feeling to be in Kolkata. The first time I played here was in 1990 at the Eden Gardens when I played an international game. Since then every outing has been special. The support here is truly special. The crowd has been right behind us in every win,” the little master said.
