Sachin Tendulkar is impatiently waiting for ICC Cricket World Cup 2015




In a recent ICC event Sachin Tendulkar told media that he is impatiently waiting to witness India’s performance in the forthcoming ICC Cricket World Cup 2015. Officially the tournament will start on February 14 and will continue for the next forty-five days. This time the tournament is being co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand.

ICC has recently appointed Sachin Tendulkar as the official brand ambassador of the upcoming cricket extravaganza. This is for the second time he has been given such a post. In 2011 also Tendulkar served as the brand ambassador for the cricket’s biggest event and he has successfully played his role throughout the event.

Tendulkar retired a year back, but he is a complacent man now. He has successfully chased his dreams and accomplished most of them, including that of being a member of the world champion squad. He has relentlessly pursued to win the World Cup title since 1989 but he won the coveted championship only 22 years after his debut. Obviously Tendulkar’s innumerable batting records catch our attention first, but his real aim was always to win the World Cup for the country.

Exactly four years back when Dhoni hit a towering six against Sri Lanka at the historic Wankhade stadium in Mumbai on 2nd April 2011 we saw a rare glimpse of the emotional Master Blaster like never before. Tears rolled down his cheeks and he hugged each of the members of team India. It was indeed very emotional feeling for every Indian. Our long cherished dream of winning a World Cup trophy was finally accomplished after a long 28 years.

In a recent ICC article Tendulkar felt that the Indian cricket team for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2007 was the best one, but unfortunately the team was knocked out of the tournament in the primary round. Sachin admitted that India’s disastrous World Cup 2007 has only strengthened him further and eventually all his critics were proved wrong when team India won the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 just four years later with more or less the same team that it has during 2007. “Winning the World Cup in 2011 was the highest point of my career as it unified the nation.” the master blaster said.

The last six consecutive editions of the ICC Cricket World Cup saw the Little Master remaining an integral part of team India, but this will be the first time ever that Indian cricket team will have no Sachin Tendulkar in its World Cup squad since 1992.

Who knew that the four decade old tournament would feature a ball-boy from Indian cricket team in 1987 who will go on to rule the entire world cricket for the next twenty four years. It is interesting to know that out of ten world cup events that have been held so far Sachin has participated in the six of them. This is a world record in itself.
