Mumbai: Legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar’s autobiography ‘Playing it my Way’ was awarded the Crossword Book of the Year Award in the Autobiography category.

The book gives a rare insight into the life of arguably the greatest batsman of all time, who was even called the ‘God of Cricket’ by his fans.

Just like Sachin, his autobiography also broke many records. Earlier, the book entered the Limca Book of World Records for being the best selling adult hardback across both fiction and non-fiction categories.

Sachin thanked his fans for their support and love.

"I cannot thank my fans enough for being a part of my journey while I was playing and during my life's second innings, their support continues to be invaluable,” Sachin was quoted as saying by India Today.

“Playing It My Way captured my journey in the cricketing world and life outside cricket. I'm delighted to know that the book has won the Popular Choice Award at the 14th Raymond Crossword Book Awards.

“I want to thank the Publishers Hachette India and Boria Majumdar for doing such a fantastic job and making this book memorable, something that's forever etched in the mind of its readers."

The legendary batsman’s autobiography has been written by cricket historian Boria Majumdar.
