Sachin Tendulkar, the god of cricket, has donned the India Legends Jersey for the second time running in the Road Safety World Series. The fans were in a tizzy watching him bat against the New Zealand Legends where he smashed 4 boundaries in his short cameo of 19 runs. With the score at 49-1, the heavens opened up and ensured that the match would not get a result.
In that bright and breezy innings, he should a glimpse of his vintage best when he played a lap shot of the bowling of New Zealand’s former premier pacer Shane Bond. That shot which went for four was a trip down the memory lane as this particular shot would be played when Sachin was at the top of his game.
It was poetry in motion, the way the ball came on to the bat and the way it left the bat to race away to the boundary for four. The video evoked a sense of nostalgia amongst the fans, with many showering praise on the god of cricket.
One fan wrote, “He is playing similar shots he played vs Nz when he scored 160 in nz nd retired hurt. Please edit those shots in that match with this.”
“That’s why he has been termed as the GOD of #Cricket. And, GOD doesn’t define through age numbers, he is above all of that. His every shot(s) are so damn precise …again what am I saying here man!!! he is GOD & those have to be perfect. #SachinTendulkar @Sachin_rt”, another fan wrote.
“He is little genius of cricket and so humble and no ego, just like Messi little genius of football and so humble and no ego. Actually, both are God gifted they are born to play”, another stated.
Here is the video of that stunning shot
