Batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar has signed his autograph on numerous issues for his followers and gamers he has performed with and towards, and one one such signature he placed on a photograph of his shattered stumps, bowled by former Australia Chinaman bowler Brad Hogg in 2007.During the third One-day International towards Australia on October 5 in Hyderabad, India chased 291 to win.

After the match, Hogg had revealed in an interview to The Sunday Age, Tendulkar gave him in writing to the Australian that he would by no means take his wicket once more.”I got him out in one of the games, and there was a photo of it I asked him to sign for me. He did it and wrote me a message. Underneath his signature, he wrote, ‘This will never happen again, Hoggy’,” Hogg had informed The Sunday Age on the time.
It so occurred that Hogg by no means took Tendulkar’s wicket once more. But that autograph stays a “prized possession” for the cricketer-turned-commentator.”It’s a bit of a prized possession. It’s an honour to be on the field with the calibre of a player like Sachin Tendulkar. To bowl at him is a great experience. It’s not overawing, just a great experience. If I’m out there, I’m out there to compete against him and make life as hard as possible for him,” he mentioned.India misplaced that match by 47 runs, regardless of Yuvraj Singh’s 115-ball 121. However, Tendulkar stored his phrase and by no means bought out towards Hogg once more in his profession.
