5. Pradeep Mandhani, a Photographer said,
Barely two hours after landing in Johannesburg on the 1992-93 tour to South Africa, the team was to visit Tolstoy Farm, Mahatma Gandhi’s first Satyagrahi Commune founded in 1910. It was situated 35 kms from Jo’burg and most of the Indian players showed little interest, longing to rest in the hotel after the long flight. But Tendulkar, still a teenager, looked keen and hungry to learn more about Gandhi. His volley of questions to the guide reflected his national pride.

The X-rays show that Tendulkar suffered a torn ligament and tendon to the finger that is affecting the finger joint," Paley said after the operation. The star batsman, who played the World Cup in South Africa with the injury, won the man-of- the-tournament award scoring a record 673 runs at an average of 61.18. Tendulkar is the only batsman in the world to score over 21,000 runs at international level with 12,219 in 314 One-dayers and 8811 in 105 Test matches. The doctors said he was in pain every time he fielded the ball during the World Cup. "Clearly, he performed well at the World Cup despite this, but he was in pain. It mostly affected his catch. Every time he had to catch the ball, it was painful.
