The living sports legend Sachin Tendulkar was only 15 when actor-thespian Tom Alter (who was a sports enthusiast himself) interviewed him. On Wednesday, it was Tom Alter’s fourth death anniversary. Sports legend Sachin Tendulkar himself remembered Tom and paid tribute while sharing a post on Twitter.

On Tom Alter’s fourth death anniversary, we take you back to 1989 when Sachin Tendulkar was interviewed by Tom Alter in one of the rare videos. In the video, Tom Alter asks Sachin Tendulkar if he gets tired now of back to back interviews? Alter shoots another question asking whether, “you will be happy if you got selected for West Indies or you are going to wait for a few more years before going for it? Sachin replied, keeping his answers short, “This is just a beginning, I think”. To this, Tom replied, “It is part of being a star in the field of cricket”. Sachin was then asked if he preferred fast bowlers, to which he nodded and said, “Yes. The ball then comes straight to the bat”. This interview goes back to January 19, 1989 Mumbai.
