Sachin first met Anjali at the Mumbai International Airport. The batting great was returning from his first International cricket tour in 1990 while Anjali was at the airport to receive her mother. They both took an instant liking to each other on the first time they met. As Sachin turned 42 on Friday, we share you some beautiful lines they said about each other in media

Anjali Tendulkar- “I think what he liked about me was that I knew nothing about cricket when I first met him.I didn't even know who Sachin was.”

Anjali Tendulkar- “I've not known any other person in my life except Sachin. I understand him so well. So whether I am his girlfriend or his wife, it's the same thing, just an extension of that bond."

Sachin Tendulkar- "Anjali actually taught me to be thankful for what the God has given me and for what the God has not given me.”

Anjali Tendulkar- “I could not be married to Sachin and also have a full-time career. It wasn't possible because he depends on me for almost everything. It was my decision. With Sachin not around and me with two kids at home, it wouldn't have been possible. I took a decision and I have never, ever regretted it."
Anjali Tendulkar- "I don't eat. I don't answer phones. I don't drink. I don't even move. I don't reply to any sms until he's out."

In his recently released autobiography, Playing It My Way, Sachin has confessed that it was Anjali who helped him deal with and get through the debacles that he faced as the captain of the Indian cricket team. Sachin has written, "I confided in Anjali that I feared there was nothing more that I could do to stem the tide of defeats.” He further added, "Anjali, as usual, managed to put things in perspective and assured me that things would surely get better in the months to come.”
