Sachin: A Billion Dreams


...and loosen your left hand.

- And... hit the ball.

- Got it?


- It's on. Hurry up.

- Come on! Lets go.

- I was only 10 years old...

...when India reached

the 1983 World Cup Final.

- We don't have a chance.

- Look at their team.

- Holding... Roberts... Garner...

- And our team?

I didn't know the significance

of being World Champions...

...but I felt differently...

...there was a buzz in the air.

And from there on, you know, this

beautiful journey staned.

I wanted to play for India.

I wanted to play for India

and then win the World Cup.

The person who understood me best...

...and guided me,

was my brother Ajit.

Ajit was the first

to notice the talent in me...

...that spark.

He took me to Ramakant Achrekar sir.

Feels nice to be back

here at Shivaji Park again.

Brings back all the

wonderful memories.

This net is where

for the first time...

...l tried on pads, gloves,

thigh pads, et cetera... and batted.

The main reason for taking

Sachin to Achrekar sir was that...

...Achrekar sir was the

coach for Shardashram School...

...which was a champion team.

I was very tensed... nervous...

I had no clue what's

going on around me.

The season ball bounces differently...

...and the rubber ball,

obviously has more bounce.

It comes directly on to the bat,

so you can hit it better.

But I was getting the feeling that

this ball was keeping slightly low.

So I couldn't do much with it.

- He must be feeling intimidated

because you're watching.

- If you stop looking...

...he'll loosen up and stan playing.

- He plays really well.

So... this time when I looked back...

...l saw that sir wasn't

standing there anymore.

Sir had taken charge of another net.

- What did you say

your brother's name was?

Sachin Tendulkar...
