New Delhi: While the entire world awaits the launch of batting legend Sachin Tendulkar's much-anticipated autobiography – Playing It My Way, the batting maestro gifted the first copy to his mother Rajni.

Tendulkar, who has been in news for the last few days for some of the revelations he has made in the book, said on micro-blogging site Twitter that his mother was the first one to get the book.

Batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar's tell-all autobiography, 'Playing It My Way' will be released later today. Even before its launch, the book has already created enough stir in the cricketing world.

In his autobiography, the legend has accused former India coach Greg Chappell of being a "ringmaster" who imposed his ideas on players. Tendulkar's not holding back narration on the Aussie coach's role has also got the backing from his contemporaries including Sourav Ganguly, VVS Laxman, Zaheer Khan and Harbhajan Singh.

The batting maestro also disclosed that Chappell had made a "shocking" suggestion to him to take over India's captaincy from Rahul Dravid months before the 2007 World Cup in West Indies.
