Mumbai: Batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar on Thursday said that Indian team's World Cup victory has had a huge impact on his son, Arjun, but he would not force him to become a cricketer.
Talking to reporters at Wankhede Stadium -- the venue of the historic triumph -- Tendulkar said, "I was inspired by Indian team's victory in 1983 World Cup. The 2011 victory has made a huge impact on my son Arjun... I will not pressurise him to become a cricketer. He can choose what he wants to do."
Tendulkar was at the stadium to meet his Mumbai Indians team-mates, and partake of the mood on the eve of Indian Premier League's start in Chennai on Friday.
