New Delhi: Indian batting legend Sachin Tendulkar has revealed yet another success mantra for the youngsters, who aspire to play cricket at the highest level.
Sachin, who suffered several injuries during his spectacular career that lasted for 24 years, shared words of wisdom for the youngsters.
"Season (cricket) ball hurts, believe me. First you have to show the opposition you are fit (to continue playing after getting hit) even if you are feeling that pain. Not showing it to the opponents, give them the upper hand.
"As a kid I used to throw the season (cricket) ball up and take it on the body to get used to that pain. If you get hit it should not come as a shock to you. If you want to play cricket you are going to break bones here and there.
The batting maestro is currently a mentor for the Mumbai Indians, who are the defending champions of the Indian Premier League.
