Mumbai: Sachin Tendulkar is not known for showing his temper or angry reactions on the cricket field, but at home he is a different person.
Many a time, his mother and wife are at the receiving end of his occasional outbursts, the batting maestro himself revealed at a function here this evening.
Speaking after releasing a collection of poems penned by his brother Nitin and a CD containing Marathi poems written by his father late Ramesh Tendulkar, the champion batsman said sometimes he does get angry on the field.
But you have to control your temper on the ground as you are representing India. Sometimes I take out the frustration in the dressing room. Many times there are situations when decisions go against you and the match is lost. It has happened many times, but I dont need to take the name of umpires, the 37-year-old said.
Asked whether he fears his mother or wifes temper, the master blaster said actually they fear his anger. I don't react on the ground. But I give vent to my feeling at home.
Tendulkar, who at times became emotional, recalled his formative years in Shardasram School at Dadar and thanked his aunt and uncle with whom he stayed for a few years. (PTI)
