It was in 1990 that Tendulkar met Anjali. During his retirement speech in 2013, Tendulkar had said it is the best partnership of his life.

“The most beautiful thing happened to me when I met Anjali in 1990. I know that being a doctor there was a big career in front of her. When we had a family, she decided that I should continue playing and she took care of the children. Thanks for bearing with me for all the nonsense I've said. You are the best partnership that I had in my life,” Tendulkar said after playing his 200th and final Test in Mumbai in 2013.

Currently, India is under a lockdown until May 31 to contain the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). Tendulkar has been sharing positive messages for fans and urging them to stay at home to win the battle against the virus.
