Indian batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar displayed his batting masterclass in the ongoing Road Safety World Series 2022. He opened the innings for India Legends in the 14th match against England Legends on Thursday, September 22 in Dehradun.
The 49-year-old wreaked havoc among England’s bowlers. He started with a classy four off Stephen Parry after being asked to bat first. Chris Tremlett came over to bowl the third over. Sachin Tendulkar went bonkers and destroyed him with two sixes and one four. At one point, his strike rate touched 264.
Just when he looked comfortable, Chris Schofield showed him the way to the dressing room. He was caught and bowled by Schofield. He finished his innings at 40(20) with a strike of 200. Tendulkar’s short, explosive innings have sent a wave of nostalgia among the fans.
People are awe-struck on social media, seeing glimpses of master blaster’s true old great self. A Twitter user also demanded that BCCI should name Sachin as a backup opener for the upcoming T20 World Cup. Here are a few Twitter reactions:

Sachin Tendulkar: The God of Cricket
Former Indian captain Sachin Tendulkar announced his official retirement in the year 2013. Popularly known as the “God of Cricket”, Sachin made a gigantic record of 100 international centuries in his career span of 24 long years. His list of runs and records is endless.
Having debuted at the tender age of 16, Sachin never looked intimidated against world’s best and fastest bowlers. His elegance, fearlessness, and sheer class made him the greatest of all time. Even after 9 years of retirement, everything still seems the same whenever he comes out to play. Fans still stay glued to the television, cheering and chanting the famous chorus “SACHIN…..SACHIN”.
