In his interaction at Shri Ram College, Pichai talked about his days in Chennai and how he tried to pursue his career as a cricketer.
In this fast age of technology, surprisingly, Pichai said that he was not a big fan of the short Twenty20 format of cricket and preferred the grind of Test cricket.
Pichai revealed in his interaction that he idolised Sachin Tendulkar and Sunil Gavaskar and admitted that he was a huge fan of Lionel Messi and the Brazilian football team.
Pichai spoke in an interaction at SRCC with an 1,800-people strong audience comprising school and college students and teachers. The event was hosted by renowned cricket commentator, Harsha Bhogle.
