Throughout his cricketing career, Sachin’s biggest support has been his gorgeous wife Anjali.

Sachin Tendulkar has always been shy about his love life. Not many of us know their love story, but let us tell you it is nothing less than a fairy tale. Love at first sight to being the biggest support to each, their relationship is a true inspiration. Here is everything you ever wanted to know about Sachin and Anjali’s love story.

It was love at first sight for them and this miracle happened at the Mumbai International Airport. Sachin was returning after playing his very first international game in the year 1990 and Anjali had come to receive her mother. That is how they saw each other and were instantly attracted. Later, somehow they managed to meet at a common friend’s house and from there on their love story began.

Anjali in one of her interviews told that her ignorance about cricket was the first thing that attracted Sachin. However, after they began dating, Anjali did every bit to make sure she knows everything about the game, only for her man. So sweet!

Anjali wrote a lot of letters to Sachin because that is the only form of communication they had. Making calls was not easy since she had to walk miles to make one phone call. However she still took all the efforts needed to keep their relationship going. They got married in 1995 after dating for 5 long  years. Being six years older to Sachin Tendulkar, people have often questioned Anjali about how distance has affected them, if at all.  But the couple has always maintained that this age gap is just a number for them. Instead the love and understanding has only grown because of the gap.

They now have two kids, Sara Tendulkar and Arjun Tendulkar. Their family photos are true family goals. While Sachin was always busy on the field, Anjali, who left her medical career, took it upon herself to support the family and take care of the household and kids. This was totally her choice and she did it happily.

Sachin Tendulkar is not only the best cricketer India has, but he is also a perfect husband to his wife, an idea father to his kids. They have a beautiful, happy family now thanks to all the efforts Anjali and Sachin took together. Their level of understanding is truly inspirational.
