Fans in awe as Sachin Tendulkar demolishes England Legends bowlers – Back-up opener for India in T20 World Cup


Sachin Tendulkar

Sachin Tendulkar retired from international cricket nearly nine years ago, but his hunger to score more and more runs hasn’t diminished by any stretch of the imagination.

The 49-year-old is currently taking part in the Road Safety World Series in Dehradun and he hasn’t flattered to deceive by any means. On Thursday, September 22, the Master Blaster took his team, India Legends, off to a flying start against England Legends.

After India Legends were put in to bat first at Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium, Tendulkar started throwing the kitchen sink right from the word go.

He started his knock with a classy four off Stephen Parry through the backward square-leg region. In the third over, Tendulkar went completely berserk and smashed fast bowler Chris Tremlett for two sixes, followed by a four.

He also took the attack to pacer Rikki Clarke in the fourth over. Just when he seemed good to get to his half-century, Chris Schofield accounted for his wicket. Tendulkar gave a simple caught and bowled to the leg-spinner.

Tendulkar perished with India’s score at 67 for the loss of two wickets in 6.2 overs. Sachin got out after scoring 40 runs off 20 balls with the help of three fours and as many sixes.

In the meantime, fans were awestruck with the way Sachin played. One of the fans even went on to say that India should pick Sachin as a back-up opener for the upcoming edition of the T20 World Cup. Tendulkar, well and truly, gave a glimpse of his stupendous self during the match in Dehradun.
