“‘I’ve had a little bit of a bad experience while driving. I was going to Nagpur after my injury to play a one-day match and my flight was at around 6 or 6:30 in the morning and my car’s tyre got punctured at 5:30am, and I had to reach airport to catch flight. So I had to take a taxi to reach the airport. I was tensed that I probably won’t get a taxi,” Tendulkar told reporters at the launch of a Go-Karting circuit at Smaaash.
“But it took me a combination of a taxi and a rickshaw to reach the airport with all the bags. And I was able to practice that day too,” her added.
