Controversies Ball-tampering charge: Referee Mike Denness suspended him for one Test match in 2001 for failing to notify umpires that he was cleaning the seam of the ball during the Port Elizabeth Test against South Africa. Tendulkar was later found not guilty of tampering by the ICC. Tendulkar was cleaning the ball without the umpire’s permission, according to ICC spokesperson Mark Harrison, rather than tampering with the ball. He stated,

“It’s still an offense but it’s not as serious as ball tampering.”

• Criticism for low attendance in parliament: During his tenure as a Rajya Sabha Member, he was frequently chastised for being absent from Parliament sittings and failing to raise any questions in the house.

Name appeared in the Pandora Papers leak: On 3 October 2021, Sachin Tendulkar’s name appeared in the Pandora Papers leak, which was exposed by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ), a global journalistic collaboration. It claimed to have obtained financial information on many celebrities in 91 countries, including India. According to the ICIJ, secret documents linked offshore assets to some celebrities, including cricketer Sachin Tendulkar, pop music diva Shakira, supermodel Claudia Schiffer, and an Italian mafia figure known as “Lell the Fat One.” Tendulkar’s attorney, on the other hand, claimed that Tendulkar had already informed the authorities about his investments.

Casino used his morphed images for promotion: On February 24, 2022, Sachin Tendulkar took to Twitter to announce that he would file a lawsuit against a casino that used his morphed image for promotion. According to reports, a Goa-based casino called ‘Big Daddy’ used its morphed image to promote itself on social media.

Paytm First Games Promotion: Sachin Tendulkar received backlash from his fans after appearing in an advertisement endorsing an online gaming app, Paytm First Games. Many of his followers were disappointed by his association with such an app. On August 31, 2023, several politicians, including Bachchu Kadu, organized a protest outside Sachin Tendulkar’s home in Bandra, Mumbai. In an interview, Kadu expressed his concern that Sachin Tendulkar’s endorsement of a gambling app like Paytm First Games might call into question his suitability as a Bharat Ratna awardee. According to Bachchu Kadu,

“Those who have received the Bharat Ratna must adhere to a code of conduct. On August 30, 2023, we will send Sachin Tendulkar a notice. We had given him until the 30th to complete his task. He has yet to clarify any of his positions in this regard. So we’re going to serve him with a legal notice. Sachin Tendulkar has been awarded the Bharat Ratna. It is inappropriate for someone with a large fan base and Bharat Ratna to promote a gambling app like Paytm First. I request that the Maharashtra government and Sachin Tendulkar immediately ban this advertisement.”

To create power when hitting a drive, I required the weight. Everything had to do with timing.I believe that the bat should be used as an extension of your arm; if this is already the case, why would you need to modify?

    “I will personally go and strangle him if, by the end of his career, he does not score at least fifteen thousand runs and forty Test hundreds. Even though my hands wouldn’t be as strong in 20 years and he might still live, I think I’ll hire someone to do it for me. That’s how talented he is!”

  • He invited well-known American journalist Graham Bensinger to India in February 2022 for a comprehensive three-day photo shoot. It was during this interview that he disclosed that, before his farewell series in November 2013, he had spoken with the BCCI and asked the board to move his final match from Mumbai to a stadium where his mother could attend and watch him play. Additionally, he disclosed that it was the sole occasion on which his mother had visited the stadium to watch him play. He declared,

    I informed the BCCI board as I was ready to play my final match that these two matches would be my last, but all I asked for was to play my final game in Mumbai so that my mother could attend and watch from the stadium. She had never seen me play live in 24 years until they kindly agreed to host the final game in Mumbai.
