9. The cake and the flag
As the 2007 World Cup was about to commence, the Indian High Commission had invited the Indian team who were in Jamaica for a function. In that ceremony, Tendulkar cut a cake that had the Indian National flag on top of it. Such a depiction, according to Indian law is not acceptable and Tendulkar’s name was involved in this matter. Since the program was itself arranged by the government officials, it was said that they should have known better. Various members from Parliament and Cricket Board took to Sachin’s support.
