I wanted to bat like Sachin Tendulkar: MS Dhoni
Former India skipper MS Dhoni has always expressed his admiration for legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar. During a recent interaction in a school, MS Dhoni revealed that Sachin Tendulkar has always been his role model. He added that he wanted to bat like the Mumbai cricketer, but realized that he cannot.
“My cricketing role model has always been Sachin Tendulkar. I was exactly like you guys, I used to watch Sachin Tendulkar play and wanted to bat like him. Later on, I realized I can’t play like him but inside my heart, I always wanted to play like him. He was my cricketing idol growing up,” said MS Dhoni in a video shared by the Chennai Super Kings on social media.
