Sachin Tendulkar's son Arjun took so much offence after a school friend blamed the icon for a first-round exit from the 2007 World Cup that he punched him right then, warning him to never again say anything about Sachin. ('Felt Humiliated After Being Sacked as Captain')
In the 2007 edition of the World Cup, India failed to even cross the group stage in the West Indies. Arjun, who was just a 7-year-old schoolkid at the time, was not aware of the huge expectations his dad carried as an Indian cricketer every time he went to bat.
"We had told Arjun, who was seven years old then, that if someone makes bad comments at school about our first-round exit from the World Cup, he should ignore it," Sachin told The Times of India in an interview.
