Master Blaster, Sachin Tendulkar is currently in Australia for the Bushfire Bash charity fundraiser match, which will be held on Sunday. He spoke about Marnus Lebuschagne, who is an Australian player of South African origin. This is what he said about him:
“I happened to be watching the second Test match at Lord’s between England and Australia. When Steve Smith got injured, I saw Labuschagne’s second innings,”
“I was sitting with my father-in-law. I saw Marnus get hit off the second ball from Jofra Archer and, post that, the 15 minutes he batted, I said, ‘This player looks special’.
“There is something about him. His footwork was precise. Footwork is not physical, it’s mental. If you’re not thinking positively in your mind, then your feet don’t move.
“That clearly indicated to me that this guy is mentally strong because if you’re not, your feet will not move. His footwork was incredible.”
It is a big deal if God of cricket praises the way you play and expects good of you. Also, read what Sachin Tendulkar said about Virat Kohli and Steve Smith:
