Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar carried a legendary status throughout his more than two decade-long career and has been one of the most admirable personalities in India. 

Fans across the globe not only craze for his on-field mastery with the willow but also revere his off-field conduct. However, his cricketing journey is not a bed of roses. People who have watched the little genius closely have often been vocal about how Sachin had to struggle a lot before he could make his debut for India at the age of 16.

Recently the cricket maestro shared a heartfelt video on Instagram in which he could be seen standing next to a bus by the number 315. Sachin revealed the interesting story behind his unspoken love with the bus and how he often used to eagerly look forward to get his favourite seat in the vehicle after long and tiring day of practice.

“Bus number 315 would ply between Bandra and Shivaji Park. I used to travel by the vehicle and would be very excited about reaching Shivaji Park and start my practice with full of enthusiasm. After all the practice, I would get tired and hope that my favourite seat, the last corner in the bus by the window, would be empty. Then I could sit there and enjoy the ride with the cool breeze from outside. There were days when I would fall asleep and miss my bus stop. But it was great fun,” Sachin recounted his memorable days. 

The Little Master announced his retirement from all formats of the game in 2013 putting an end to his long and illustrious career.
