Sachin Tendulkar’s connection with Sir Donald Bradman began with a neighbor’s letter from Australia’s cricketing great

“When were you first aware of Sir Donald Bradman?” I ask.

“It has to be at home,” Sachin Tendulkar says. “I must have been around five years old.”

I’m interviewing the Indian cricket great for the documentary, Bradman and Tendulkar, for ABC.

Tendulkar was born in 1973 (yes, he will turn 50 in three months).

“And because both my brothers followed cricket, and [my] sister obviously, I had no choice but to listen to their conversation. Parents followed a little bit. Not much,” he says.
