REVEALED! Why Sachin Tendulkar used to nod his head while batting ?

The secret why former batting legend Sachin Tendulkar used to nod his head while batting has been disclosed.

Speaking to comedian Vikram Sathaye on his show ‘What The Duck’, Sachin Tendulkar finally revealed the reason behind him nodding his head while batting. The former legend explained that the helmet straps were extremely uncomfortable for him and so as to make it loose he used to strap it up with a tape so that it never came off. He also revealed that during the latter half of his career it became more of a habit than anything else.

Sachin also talked about a funny incident between him and Harbhajan Singh. In the year 1995-96 when Harbhajan wasn’t yet playing for India, he was a teenager bowling to Sachin in the nets and like his habit Sachin nodded before and after playing a ball. On certain occasions, Harbhajan thought that Sachin was calling him. The off-spinner illustrated the story to Sachin a few years back.
