As Sachin Tendulkar announced his retirement on Thursday, many people have voiced their opinion on what they felt about his career. Newspapers, television channels and websites have devoted their entire attention on the big event in cricket. Many current and former cricketers have recalled some of their most cherished memories with Tendulkar.
Tendulkar’s former India and Mumbai teammate Jatin Paranjpe spoke to CricketCountry and recounted a story from their younger days. During an Under-15 national camp in Indore, Tendulkar had shown his eagerness and enthusiasm to bat, even at the most unexpected times of the day and night.
Both Tendulkar and Paranjpe were in the camp and they were coached by Jatin’s father Vasu Paranjpe. Jatin also explains how his father was part of Tendulkar’s early career. He also talks about what advises Vasu Paranjpe would give Tendulkar.
Jatin Paranjpe came through the ranks with Tendulkar at Mumbai. Paranjpe was a left-handed batsman and was quite successful in his domestic career. He played his entire First-Class career with Mumbai and played from 1991 to 2001. He scored 3,964 runs in 65 First-Class matches at an average of 46.09. Paranjpe scored 13 centuries and 15 half-centuries with a highest of 218.
Paranjpe also played four One-Day Internationals (ODIs) for India.
