When Anjali got a ‘headache’ because of husband Sachin Tendulkar!

Wives getting headaches due to their husbands in not an uncommon phenomenon and even if you are the great Sachin Tendulkar, you aren’t spared. Cricketers and their love for mean machines is no secret. Down the years, cricketers especially the ones from India have expressed their love for speed. Right since his teens, one such fan of mean machines is Tendulkar. But there was an incident when Tendulkar’s love for speed became a matter of headache for him and his wife ‘Anjali’ for the whole day.

“It was some years back in England. The BMW guys gave me one of their limited edition cars to check out. They told me to give them a feedback and said ‘Check out the brakes,” Sachin was quoted in a report from Press Trust of India (PTI).

“So I convinced Anjali to come with me for a drive and I really pressed it hard. I won’t tell you what speed I was driving. Since they told me to check the brakes, I applied it and it came to halt. Such was the G-force, me and Anjali both felt it and we both had a headache for the entire day. It was an experience I remember,” added the legendary cricketer, who graced the promotional event at Cyber Hub, Gurgaon on Thursday.

Spending family time

The legendary cricketer has been away from his family during most of his career but now has decided to spend the majority time with his children Sara and Arjun.

“I play paintball sometimes because of my son’s demand. My friends and his friends make two teams we play best of three or best of five. It is a real bonding time for our family because at times my daughter Sara also joins in when she takes time out of her own interests,” said Tendulkar.

“My son also enjoys bowling and we often visit a bowling alley. Earlier, when I was playing cricket, I did not have much time for my family but now it is about giving quality time to them which I feel is extremely important as it gives me immense satisfaction,” he added.

Post retirement, the batting maestro has kept himself busy in charity events and recently ended the Indian Premier League (IPL) campaign with a smile, when the team that he mentors Mumbai Indians (MI), lifted the trophy for the second time in IPL history.
