Kohli in an interview said, “I started playing cricket because of him. I was inspired to do things he did for the country. I always visualize myself in those situations. It is just a great honor to share the same dressing room with him. I remember when I was small, my only dream was to see him in real life and to play with him now is just a great honour for me. I couldn’t have asked for anything more,” he further added, “ Tendulkar’s tips have also helped him grow as a batsman.”
“If he saw something he would come up to me himself and tell the areas I need to work on, which is quite rare. People of his stature won’t always do that. It always gave me confidence and I got a chance to bat with him and have big partnerships. That was the most special thing I could have asked for,”
