New Delhi, Oct 7: His more than two decades long career is a stuff of legends and handing out tips on chasing success, Indian cricket icon Sachin Tendulkar said one should be smart enough to hide weaknesses against rival bowlers.
“You can’t expose weaknesses. Once I got hit in the rib-cage. The bowler kept staring at me and I kept staring at him. It had become difficult to breath but I did not show. I knew it was broken, hit on the spot. But you never stop, you keep moving forward,” the retired batting legend said at launch of IDBI Federal Life Insurance New Delhi Marathon, to be held on February 26.
Tendulkar, who was announced face of the event, said running made a huge impact on his training in his magnificent 24-year long career.
“Running had a positive impact on my fitness. For us it was about speed, the short bursts and recovery to play the next ball. For running between the wickets, it was run, decelerate, touch the crease and accelerate. That’s what worked for me,” he said.
