“Sachin Tendulkar was someone who changed the way everyone looked at the sport in this country. He was literally an emotion and not just a cricket player,” said the Indian cricket team captain.

During the show, he also revealed how sometimes ends up seeing nothing but a ball coming out of a “blurred vision.” “Sometimes I go into a state where I don’t even look at the bowler,” he says. “It’s literally just a ball coming out of, you know you can almost call it a blurred vision. I follow my instinct to a level that I feel like there is no negative streak in my body at all, at that moment.”
In a documentary that aired on ‘Mega Icons’ series on National Geographic, Kohli revealed that the incident happened in his first season in the Ranji Trophy. He had to go out and bat the day after his father died. “It happened in my arms,” says the 29-year-old.
“It was 3 in the morning, and I was batting overnight. I was 40 not out, and I had to go in the morning and bat the next day because it was a four-day Ranji Trophy cricket. We just couldn’t get help. We tried to get help from the neighbours, whoever we knew was a doctor. It was such a time of the night that no one responded. By the time ambulance and everything came, everything was already gone,” he said.
