Away from the VIVO IPL, Sachin Tendulkar romances the pause

He may have signed out of the IPL in terms of active play, but Sachin Tendulkar doesn’t miss an opportunity to knock a ball about — no matter what sport is involved. Fresh off the greens from Vizag, we hear cricket’s master blaster has been romancing the pause with his new passion: golf. While in Visakhapatnam as mascot of the Mumbai Indians recently, Sachin took time away from all the VIVO IPL action to tee off at the East Point Golf Club in Mudasarlova.

“To be able to play 18 holes is not easy,” Sachin has confessed in the past, but it seems the cricket legend is getting better and better at it. “He’s a natural,” say those in the know, adding that Sachin is also exceptional at table tennis and loves to play the racket sport when some downtime presents itself.

So what is it about golf that attracts the Mumbai-based maestro? Believe it or not, Sachin himself confesses, his favourite thing about the sport is the silence!
