There are certain things that you just don't do. You want to wrestle bears, by all means go ahead. Fancy a fight with a lion, give it a shot. People have managed both. You can even try to get Lady Luck to smile on you and try facing a lion and a bear at the same time.But then again, there are certain things that are just not done. You don't sledge the God and get away with it. Even Lady Luck will shake her head and walk away if you try to sledge Sachin Tendulkar. Just see how two Australian cricketers are wary of sledging Sachin. Brett Lee looks reverently at Sachin and dismisses any possibility of sledging getting to him. He has said “Sachin Tendulkar is a guy you don't want to chat to, period, because he will knuckle down, same as Brian Lara. There are guys you can stir up and get stuck into and there are others you leave alone.”Shane Warne has added “With Sachin Tendulkar and Brian Lara, it’s better to be friends and make them smile rather than wind them up.”Everyone didn't get the memo though. Here is a look at cricketers who regretted sledging Sachin Tendulkar.
#1 Abdul Qadir
Sachin Tendulkar marked his territory quite early in his career when he was just 16 years old. In 1989 he was facing Pakistan in a less than friendly environment. The crowd had signs reading "Hey kid, go home and drink milk." But Sachin was unfazed and he went about his business. He blasted Mustaq Ahmed by hitting two sixes in one over. That prompted Abdul Qadir to poke a lion.
