Monty Panesar, the first Sikh to play cricket for England, has said he never imagined that his first Test wicket would be master batsman Sachin Tendulkar.
“It (getting Tendulkar out) was beyond my imagination - I never dreamed of taking his wicket as my first Test wicket,” the spinner said.
The Northamptonshire left-armer was drafted into the touring side to India after Ashley Giles was unable to make the trip due to injury.
“Playing against the Indians and interacting with them was a good learning experience,” Panesar said.
“Whenever you get the chance it is good to talk to them and learn something from them,” he told ‘The Independent’.
The Indian crowds took Panesar to their hearts, which took him by surprise.
