Last Updated: 09/08/18 3:56pm
Sachin Tendulkar is the most decorated cricketer of all time.
'The Little Master' is worshipped across the whole of India after scoring over 34,000 runs in Test and ODI cricket.
We despatched former England captain Nasser Hussain to Mumbai to find out more about Tendulkar's glittering career and find out what motivated him to become a true batting superstar.
Press play on the video above to watch episode two in full.
Sachin tells Nasser that he was "clueless" when he made his Test debut in Pakistan against an attack featuring Wasim Akram, Waqr Younis, Imran Khan and Abdul Qadir - he admits becoming teary and doubting whether he could cut it at the top level after falling for 15 in his first innings.
Tendulkar also discusses how important preparation was for him and how he kept a journal in which he would jot down his record against opposition bowlers, where they got him out and where his boundary options were.
Plus, we hear how Sachin has coped with fans always wanting a piece of him and whether that pressure has been difficult for him and his family.
Sachin looks back on his childhood and explains how his love of sport - and cricket in particular - blossomed under the guiding influence of his parents, brother and coach.
He also shares insights into his philosophy as he worked his way up through the ranks and the drills that helped hone his skills in the early days.
'The Little Master' also reflects on the time his hero Sunil Gavaskar came to watch him bat - and earned the right to face Kapil Dev in the nets at the age of 14.
