Mumbai: A known cricket buff, legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar fasted for Team India during the high voltage World cup semifinal against arch rivals Pakistan and is now praying for her favourite Sachin Tendulkar to score his 100th century in tomorrow's finals.
The 81-year-old, who says that the master blaster is like her son, did not eat or drink during the nine-hour
"I had watched the whole match and I was very tense. Everyone in my family follows some kind of superstition when India is playing. I, Meena and Usha did not eat or drink anything during the semifinal match. I was constantly praying for the victory and we had our dinner after India won," Lata told PTI in a telephonic interview from Mumbai.
