Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar currently leads the India Legends in the ongoing Road Safety World Series and the right-handed batter shows no signs of rusting with the bat. The maestro had retired from international cricket in 2013, but when you see him batting, it doesn’t look like Sachin has shut down his career. On Thursday, the 49-year-old hit 40 runs from just 20 balls against England Legends, including three huge sixes.
Tendulkar led off the at bat against England Legends and came off the goal with a single. In the over against Chris Tremlett, Tendulkar decided to go crazy when he crushed him for 6.6 and 4. The second six have now gone viral when he saw the Master Blaster dance across the track and knock him over the border fence.
