Ashraful spills a few interesting details about Sachin
When India had toured Bangladesh, Mohammad Ashraful had invited a few Indian cricketers to his home for a meal. Sachin Tendukar was also on the list. However, Ashraful was skeptical about Sachin’s eating habits as the legend possessed a controlled personality. Revealing further details about the incident which left him surprised, Ashraful said:
“Believe me, Sachin ate all the items my mother cooked. Then he also ate a lot of yoghurt and sweets. I couldn’t ask Sachin how he could eat so much.” Ashraful also revealed that at one point Sachin himself said, “I eat less most of the time. I eat a loaf of vegetables. But sometimes I eat. I eat as much as I can on the day when I wish to eat.”
