India's great batsman Sachin Tendulkar has seldom got involved in any controversy in his 24-year cricket career ... Tendulkar's temperament was calm on and off the field. Many players have expressed their displeasure with the BCCI during their careers, but this has never happened to Tendulkar
In 1998, two Indian teams were playing in different tournaments. Under the leadership of Ajay Jadeja, Sachin Tendulkar had gone to Malaysia to play in the Commonwealth Games. However, Tendulkar's form did not work out at the Commonwealth Games and India were knocked out in the knockout stages.
During the same period, India's second team was playing Sahara Cup against Pakistan in Toronto, Canada. There were three matches against Pakistan here till the end of Team India's challenge from the Commonwealth Games.
The BCCI has decided to send Sachin, Ajay, Robin Singh and Anil Kumble to Canada. So that these players can play the remaining two matches against Pakistan.
Pakistan objects to Commonwealth Games players playing in Sahara Cup Therefore, the BCCI decided to send Jadeja and Sachin.
Jadeja arrived in Canada to play his fourth match, but Tendulkar was nowhere to be found. After the Commonwealth Games, Tendulkar went on a picnic with his family. Even the BCCI did not know this.
Somehow they found Tendulkar and Tendulkar arrived in Canada to play his last match against Pakistan. Tendulkar scored 77 runs in that match.
After Tendulkar's performance, Pakistan won the match by 5 wickets and won the Sahara Cup 4-1.
