Speaking exclusively to NDTV, Master Blaster confessed to his fear of losing career in cricket when he suffered from tennis elbow injury.

"The only time ever again that I was ever that scared again was after my tennis elbow and I thought I would never play cricket again. I thought my career was over. I don't have the strength to hit the cricket ball. I prayed to god to give me one chance."

Tendulkar also said that he wants his son to love cricket as much as he do.

"I want my son to love cricket. I want cricket to be in his heart. My son loves to hit sixes like me. I keep telling him test cricket is real cricket."

The legendary player, who will begin his third decade in international cricket from November 15, divulged that he wants to be remembered as an unselfish player.

"I want to be remembered as someone who was not a selfish cricketer."
