Watch: Sachin Tendulkar smashes vintage six, Twitter says ‘Pick him for T20 WC’ | Cricket

Nine years after his retirement, Sachin Tendulkar still has it. At 49 years old, the Master Blaster produced a knock that will put many a T20 inning to shame. India Legends captain Tendulkar played a blistering innings of 40 off just 20 balls against England Legends in the Road Safety World Series including three fours and three sixes and got off to a blazing start, setting the stage for the big 40 run of his team. to win.

Tendulkar was nothing short of sensational in the ongoing series. He came out for 16 against South Africa but looked in top form in the next against New Zealand Legends. Tendulkar went undefeated on 19 off 13 balls in which he broke four boundaries – a Shane Bond pull-off, a lapshot and his signature backfoot punch – before rain ended his innings early. But on Thursday in Dehradun, fans could once again witness Tendulkar’s genius as he rolled back the years and did it in a certain style.

Leading off the innings, Tendulkar opened his account with a single before picking up his first frontier towards the back square leg. However, it was in the next over that Tendulkar went crazy, crushing former England pacer Chris Tremlett for 6, 6 and 4. The first six were a Tendulkar round, as the ball was carried all the way over the boundary with a fine leg. However, the second six broke the internet when Tendulkar stepped out of the fold to Tremlett, elevating him for a long time in a return to his 1998 Desert Storm innings in Sharjah.

In addition to the straight drive and the hindfoot punch, another shot that Tendulkar was known for in his magnificence was this one, where he would repeatedly jump out of the fold and break boundaries and sixes. He followed it up with a new boundary from the next ball to finish an expensive 18 run-over. The six caused a social media collapse, with many even demanding his return to the Indian T20 World Cup team. Here are some of the responses.

Tendulkar did not stop there. Rikki Clarke got another round of six and like Jade Dernbach, although it was a four, Sachin raced away to 40 from 19 balls. A fifty was up for grabs, but just as Tendulkar was burning Twitter with his blitzkrieg, he passed the ball back to leg spinner Chris Schofield for an easy catch and bowl. Nevertheless, Tendulkar had entranced the Dehradun crowd, enough to take them on a Nostalgia trip with its captivating innings. India-L placed 170/4 and ENG-L came up 40 runs short in response. Appropriately, Tendulkar was named ‘Man of the Match’
