Just for Sachin

Sudhir Kumar, an Indian cricket fan, never hesitates to spend his hard-earned money to watch the batting of master batsman Sachin Tendulkar.

That's why the 24-year old dairy farm worker from Bihar came to Chittagong, that too riding on his bicycle to watch his favourite cricketer bat in the first Test.

"It is for the second time that I have travelled with my bicycle abroad. I first visited Pakistan only to watch Sachin because he is my favourite player and I love his batting," said Sudhir.

"I hardly need any money because I always travel with my bicycle," he said claiming that he has a talking term with the Indian batting stalwart.
