Speaking to Harsha Bhogle in the third episode of KuttiStorieswithAsh, the veteran offie said, “There is this whole group called ‘The 90s Kids,’ right? They talk about how Sachin Tendulkar was an emotion. What Sachin Tendulkar meant to them. You (Harsha) said that he was a poster boy of Indian cricket, wasn’t he? For me, he was the hope that I looked upon every day I got up in the morning."

I knew when Sachin got out, India had no chance: Ravichandran Ashwin

A lot of fans might relate to the fact that when Sachin got out, India didn't have many chances to win during the 90s. Ashwin mentioned the same during the conversation with Bhogle.


“When I saw Sachin bat, my stomach used to churn because when he got out, I knew India didn’t stand a chance at that point of time. Sachin was not just a poster boy. He was not just a hope. But he was everything. Not just in cricket. For a young Indian coming up in life, he was everything. Sachin Tendulkar was something else. He was not just a cricketer,” he added.
