Sachin Tendulkar doesn’t want young children who aspire to become cricketers are held back due to lack of sports equipment required for playing.
Sachin Tendulkar the batting legend said in an interview in London that he wants to help under privileged children across India and the world so that they are able to play cricket and live their passion.
Sachin tendulkar said “ I know how it feels when you don’t have enough money in your pocket and you wish to buy a particular bat for yourself. Sachin who is called the Master Blaster has his roots growing up in India. He wants to help the poorest of the children who aspire to play cricket.
The former Indian cricket captain and one of the world’s most revered batsmen wants to ensure that no child who aspires to become a cricketer is held back just because they hail from a poor family, and hence do not have money to buy sports equipments. He announced his new investment in sporting gear firm Spartan International here today.
Due to lack of equipment so many under-privileged promising cricketers end up playing for their state but don’t go on further after that.
I want to help them and provide them with proper cricketing gears, so that they don’t have to worry when they break a bat that where will the next bat come from. I just want the kids to play with a free mind and just live their dreams without any fear. Sachin made an official announcement of his the plan for making cricketing gears for such children.
Sachin wants to supply the equipments so that these kinds will just have to go out and live their passion. They should only concentrate and think about scoring runs or taking wickets and giving their best.
Sachin said the best feeling is when you are out there on the field and batting for your team and scoring, winning or losing is part of the game and all depends on your performance, what really matter is scoring for your team. I want this to happen to as many children as possible.
“My career started when I saw the World Cup being lifted by Kapil Dev in 1983, from there on I wanted to chase my dream and there were gradual steps which I had to take. It wasnt like from day one I had the best of bats in my hand. So I want to address that, as there are children who may not be able to afford a bat. I want to help and sponsor them,” he said.
