Want to know what's inside Tendulkar's kit bag?
March 06, 2009

Ever wondered what Sachin Tendulkar [Images] carries in his cricket kit bag?

Now you can open it up and examine the contents for yourself.

Notice, first, that the devout Sachin has a selection of images of Lord Ganesh [Images] on the inside lid of his bag.

Then comes the kit itself: multiple pairs of shoes, batting gloves, and bats of varying weight. Another smaller bag contains jerseys and other articles of clothing.

Tendulkar has a fetish for tidiness -- he has a place for everything, and everything needs to be in place. It is no surprise therefore that his kit bag is one of the neatest you will ever come across in international cricket.

And then there is one final element -- Tendulkar's mostt prized possession: a little piece of art glued to the inside lid of his 'coffin'.

It is a hand drawn image of the Indian national flag, inscribed with the words "All The Best. From Mama, Sara, Arjun".

That tells you all you ever need to know, about Tendulkar the player, and the man.
