The book is filled with memories, anecdotes and interesting tid-bits. For example, the book tells readers that Tendulkar’s first bat was a gift from his sister, Savita, and was bought in Kashmir and that he was a ball boy during the 1987 World Cup match between India and Zimbabwe. The book is an interesting read that will help you get to know the Little Master better. Published by Hachette India and available on Amazon.in
