Scroll down to know how he is always so calm on the cricket ground. Catch the entire video live on our YouTube channel.

Sachin Tendulkar Had A Calm Demeanour On The Cricket Ground

While on the topic of cricket, Kamiya asked him about how he maintained his composure on the ground. Just as she said that, the camera shifted to Sachin Tendulkar for his response and he laughed it off. He said, “Kaun kehta hai main calm and composed tha!” (Who said I was calm and composed!)

He admitted that he would get pissed off. Sometimes he deliberately showcased this aggression on the field and sometimes he had to conceal it. This faking of aggression was directly related to how the situation was currently on the ground and the audience’s hooting and boos.

Sachin Tendulkar shared quite an unforgettable incident in detail. In 2003, the World Cup match was against Pakistan. He informed us that chasing 274 runs against Pakistan was a big deal back in the day and India didn’t want to lose any wickets. Soon, the Indian cricket team started hitting fours and sixes.

This resulted in a confidence decline in Pakistan’s team. Seeing the change in their confidence, he and Virender Sehwag played further mind games on the field. They started conversing loudly so that the Pakistani players knew they intended to keep up this pace.

Guess what? India won by six wickets! Hence, playing mind games is extremely crucial as it depends upon the opposition and the situation of the match.
