Sachin Tendulkar has had several cricket partnerships through his 24-year career. The one he cherishes the most in his life though is the 'partnership' with his wife. An emotional Tendulkar thanked Anjali for standing by him throughtout his career which ended at Wankhede with his 200th Test on Saturday. "The most beautiful thing happened to me in 1990 when I met my wife Anjali. Those were the most wonderful years," he said.
"Being a doctor, there was a wonderful career ahead of her. She told me when we wanted to have a family that I should concentrate on cricket and she will take care of everything. Thanks for being there. You are the best partnership I have had in my life."
Anjali had tears in her eyes when Tendulkar was making his speech as a packed Wankhede cheered his every word. The Little Master went on to thank his in-laws too for supporting him. "My in-laws have been loving and caring. It is so important to have a strong family. They allowed me to marry Anjali, so thank you very much," he said.
