Back in 1992, Sachin Tendulkar was signed up by Yorkshire Cricket Club to play in the English county cricket. The 19-year-old then had impressed everyone at the club. 28 years later, Tendulkar is probably the most celebrated batsman in the history of the game. The Mumbaikar has since shared a good relationship with the club and its members.

Recently, the Yorkshire club released its new range of first-class caps for their side. The club posted a picture on Twitter of a man wearing the new flat cap. The image was taken on the backdrop of the club’s home ground, the Headingley stadium in Leeds. This invited a series of tweets making up a conversation between Sachin Tendulkar and Micheal Vaughan.

Former England captain Vaughan played for only Yorkshire during his whole career. Interestingly, Vaughan made his first-class debut only a year after Tendulkar had taken the field for the club.

Yorkshire sends a cap after Sachin and Vaughan engage in a Twitter conversation

After seeing the picture of the new flat cap on Twitter, Vaughan replied to the post and said that he needs one. Tendulkar also responded by praising the new design. He also said that he wants one as well. “This is fantastic. I want one too! @YorkshireCCC,” the former Indian batsman tweeted in response to Vaughan’s tweet.

 

Seeing this Vaughan, who shares a good relation with Sachin, responded with a tweet. In his tweet, he promised to bring one to the IPL when it finally starts. “I will bring one to the #IPL if and when it gets the go-ahead this year”, Vaughan wrote in response. Michael Vaughan has visited India almost every year since his career as a commentary flourished. The ex-Yorkshire batsman has television contracts for the IPL and travels to various countries.

However, Yorkshire Cricket Club took it on themselves to solve the problem. The club tweeted by telling Tendulkar that they have already sent one for him. The tweet read, “One is on its way to you #OneRose”. Sachin Tendulkar has also some fond memories of being at the club. His stint was very impressive as he performed quite well during his stay. Interestingly, in 2002, Sachin scored a brilliant 193 against England in a Test at the Headingley, Yorkshire’s home ground.
