Sachin Tendulkar has finally responded to Maria Sharapova’s ignorance about the legend’s existence. Tendulkar, who has retired from the game, said that he was not offended by her comment. ‘Comment [was] not disrespectful, maybe she doesn’t follow Cricket.’, he was quoted as saying by a television channels.
The French Open champion was recently asked by the press during Wimbledon whether she knew Sachin Tendulkar. ‘’I don’t.’’, she had said. Sharapova’s comment outraged many Indian fans who follow cricket religiously.
Maria Sharapova was born in Russia, and brought up in USA, two countries where cricket is not followed.
