Sachin Tendulkar told me to stay away from fixers, says Sushil Kumar

At a time when match-fixing is plaguing sport at large, Sushil Kumar has revealed that Sachin Tendulkar advised him to keep safe distance from people who indulge in corrupt practices.

Speaking to a leading newspaper, the double Olympic medallist revealed Tendulkar had warned him against potential match fixers.A diehard Tendulkar fan, Sushil said, "You learn so much simply by just sitting next to him. Once during a promotional event, we were having dinner and he leaned over and told me, 'If you want to win another medal then stay as you are and don't follow these people by doing the things they do.' I looked up to see which people and he was pointing to some of his fellow cricketers. I won't name which ones. You make your conclusion," Sushil said with a wink.
