Their is lot of disappointment among Sachin fans on his decision to retire from one day cricket. Why ???
Rather than getting disappointed, true fans should salute him and his wise decision because the God of Cricket will be spending more time in improving the sports scenario in India through his responsible position in Rajya Sabha and also nurture the talents in cricket, clearly mentioned in his statement while announcing his retirement from ODI – ”India should look for new talent to defend title in 2015 !!”
The God of Cricket had simply surrendered to his subconscious mind which always take one to the right path.
Shared below is one of his interview with NDTV on 3rd May 2012 where he shared the spirituality element in sports :
Good to surrender to subconscious mind while playing: Tendulkar
Notwithstanding his perfectionist image, Sachin Tendulkar believes that “surrendering” to the subconscious mind while batting can be a good idea.
“It is good to surrender yourself to the subconscious mind (while batting). The conscious mind can sometimes create problems,” he said during an interaction with budding cricketers of a local club here on Thursday.
Stating that nobody can be perfect despite their best preparation, the senior India batsman asked the young cricketers not to be afraid of making mistakes.
“A player has to make mental adjustment and self-belief is important. If you believe in your ability, you can take on any opposition,” he said.
On the temperament needed for Twenty20 cricket, he said, “Things depend on the team composition. There is no particular formula. You have to play your assigned role. If you are supposed to hit out and if you get out doing so, you should not regret.”
Asked how much importance the team meetings hold, Sachin said they are desirable to the extent that they boost the players’ confidence, but the exercise could be counter-productive if it involves “grilling and raising too many questions”.
“What a sportsman needs is a clear and healthy mind,” he added.
The God of Cricket is still batting for improving sports, for healthy India.
As a mark of tribute – we should help him and ourselves by supporting all initiatives in promoting sports among masses.
