Cricket icon Sachin Tendulkar is now the brand ambassador for the upcoming International Cricket Council’s Women’s World Cup which is going to take place in England and Wales in couple of months. He is very proud to get this honour from the ICC.
True Cricket Fan
Sachin Said "If you are a true cricket fan, you need to get there in the middle and watch that action. They are skillful players, they are competitive, they fight hard and in the right spirit. Then why wouldn't you want to be there? I think you need a closer look at yourself in the mirror and ask yourself some strong question that are you a cricket fan or cricket lover. If yes, then you better be there."
women are for sport and sport is for women
To celebrate the launch of the tournament schedule on International Women's Day, He said "International Women's Day is something special and the World cup is a massive occasion; the biggest event in cricket and I believe that women are for sport and sport is for women. The two should go hand in hand and that's the reason I'm extending my support. The competitiveness and fierce competitions we will see is something we can all enjoy at the Women's World Cup and something everyone can appreciate,"
All are competitive teams
"This World Cup is going to be competitive. I have witnessed a few games and I know for sure that Australia, South Africa, England, New Zealand, they all are competitive teams," Sachin Said
My heart is with India
"But my heart is with India. India has got a solid competitive Team and a couple of players I have followed and interacted with - (Jhulan) Goswami and Mithali Raj. So, all in all, I think this is going to be a great tournament. Let's wait and enjoy cricket and I know for sure that people will not be disappointed at all." he said
Enjoy the game
Tendulkar felt it was unfair to compare men's cricket with women's cricket, and stressed the need to enjoy each format independently.
