Jai Bhanushali's love for cricket, courtesy Sachin

Mumbai, Nov 16 : TV actor Jai Bhanushali says as a child, he always wanted to play cricket on the same pitch as Sachin Tendulkar did when he was a youngster.

"The meaning of cricket changed when Sachin entered cricket. Every child who has ever been inspired by cricket is because of Sachin Tendulkar," Jai said here Friday at the launch of Charisma Spa.

"I remember when I was in seventh or eighth standard (in school), I used to plead with my mother to let me go and play cricket at Shivaji Park and on the same pitch on which Sachin used to play and (I used to say that I) will learn from the same coach," he added.

Jai has a lot of happy memories thanks to Sachin.

"There are a lot of memories associated with him, and he has also been a source of happiness. Whenever there was an India-Pakistan match and he used to hit sixes, it was a moment of joy. He will be missed by all," Jai added.

Sachin Tendulkar played his 200th and final Test at the Wankhede Stadium here Saturday, with India defeating the West Indies by an innings and 126 runs to claim the series 2-0. Sachin scored 74 runs Friday in the only innings India played.
