Indian cricketer Prithvi Shaw called Sachin Tendulkar his mentor and revealed that the latter talks more about the mental aspects.
“I was eight years old when I met Sachin Sir and since that time, he is my mentor and I have learnt a lot of things from him (ranging) from on the field what you have to do (to) off the field, discipline, and everything,” Shaw said during an Instagram live chat with his employers ‘Indian Oil’.
Shaw feels privileged that Tendulkar, even now from his busy schedule, takes time out to watch him practice.
“Even now, whenever I go for practice, if Sachin Sir is there to watch me, he will talk, not much technically but mentally more… so it’s been a great journey for me under the guidance of Sachin Sir and lot of coaches,” added Shaw.
He also revealed that he was a ball boy during one of the Test matches in Mumbai.
