Sachin Tendulkar remembers Sir Don Bradman on his 110th birthday

Indian Cricket god Sachin Tendulkar remembers his senior and legendary Australian cricketer Sir Don Bradman on his 110th Birthday. Sachin posted a picture with the Sir Don Bradman’s statue with a note sharing his memory of the meeting with Aussies’ player.

Sachin wrote, “It’s been 20 years since I met the inspirational Sir Don Bradman but that special memory is so vivid. I still recall his amazing wit, warmth and wisdom. Remembering him fondly today, on what would been his 110th birthday”.

With Sachin, Google doodle is also celebrating the birthday of the legendary Bradman with a picture depicting him playing with the bat while dressed up in the green hat and with field in the background.

Sachin remembers an incident when he asked to Sir Don Bradman about the early match preparations played between India and Australia in 1998 for which Bradman replies with the utmost simplicity.

Bradman told to Sachin that he used to go for his job of sharebroking before the matches and then return and play in the field. It has been a long time comparison of Sir Don Bradman and Sachin Tendulkar playing techniques.

The appreciation comes from both the sides as Bradman has praised Sachin in his book “Bradman Best”. In his book, he said that Sachin has best techniques and asked his wife to watch his outstanding performance.

In the book, it is written, “He was most taken in by Tendulkar’s technique, compactness and his shot production and has asked his wife to have a look at the Indian as he felt that Tendulkar played like he had. Jessie agreed that they appeared similar”.

Sir Don Bradman is called as the “greatest living Australian” as he had the rich cricket history behind him. In just 52 match, he had achieved 6996 runs with a superb average of 99.94 runs. The heap of runs includes 29 centuries and 13 half centuries.

He astonished everyone on July 11, 1930 by making 309 runs in a single match against England at Leeds and in 130 Ashes, he made 974 runs. In 2009, Sir Don Bradman was inducted in the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame.
