Sachin played hookey

As much as the runs he has scored, India master batsman Sachin Tendulkar is known for his dedication to practising his art. But it turns out that Tendulkar was not very different from an ordinary teenager, and he even used to bunk cricket practice!

"Teachers are very important in a person's life. I remember my cricket coach in particular. Ramakant sir (Ramakant Acharya) was always an inspiration. In fact, me and a few friends bunked practice a few times but he always used to ride his scooter to find and get us back," he said while speaking to children at NDTV's Coca Cola Support My School campaign in Mumbai yesterday.
