During a chat with cricket.com, Sachin Tendulkar categorically talked about the two regrets he has in his career.

“I have two regrets. The first is that I have never played with Sunil Gavaskar. Mr Gavaskar was my batting hero when I grew up and not playing with him as part of a team remains a regret. Mr Gavaskar retired a couple of years before I made my debut,” Tendulkar told cricket.com.

Speaking about his second regret, Sachin Tendulkar stated that he never played against his childhood idol, Viv Richards. While the West Indies great played international cricket even after Sachin made his debut, but their paths never crossed in international cricket. However, they have played against each other in County cricket.
“My other regret is not having played against my childhood hero Sir Vivian Richards. I was fortunate to have played against him in county cricket, but I still rue not being able to play against him in an international match. Even though Sir Richards retired in 1991 and we have a couple of years overlapping in our careers, we did not get to play against each other,” he concluded.
