At 39, Sachin feels he is still learning

Hyderabad, Aug 22: We all know that the 39 year old still looks hungry for runs. Having achieved almost every milestone, Sachin Tendulkar still feels there is no end to learning. His dedication cannot be compared with any other player, which makes him World's best batsman.

On Tuesday, when Team India practiced at Rajiv Gandhi Cricket Stadium ahead of India's first Test against New Zealand, master blaster was seen playing a few strokes during the batting session. After his turn, he walked close to coach Duncan Fletcher and had a chat with him, following which the little master was seen practising a few strokes.

It is learnt that Fletcher pointed out a few errors in his stroke play which was accepted by the master as he went on to practice those shots.

Being there for 23 years and continuing to play for the country, having created history by achieving the impossible feat of 100 centuries in the history of the game, Tendulkar's energy and attention was similar to a 16-year old when he was listening to Fletcher's talks and practising those shots to fine tune his skills.

This is definitely one of the reasons for Sachin Tendulkar's success, who wants to be perfect in whatever he does. This indeed is a lesson for many of us to learn as the master blaster who has scored 18,426 runs in ODIs and 15,470 in Tests continues to learn the nuances of the game.
