Indian cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar might not be an active player anymore. However, his love for the game is still intact. Unlike many of his contemporaries, the former batter hasn’t been an active coach or commentator. However, he’s pretty active on social media, expressing opinions on different topics of the game. Tendulkar has also been reacting to viral cricket videos, lauding cricket lovers.

On Thursday (October 14), Tendulkar took to Twitter and shared a video of kids playing cricket in a street. The video apparently showed a kid bamboozling batters with his leg-break bowling. The child seemed well-versed with the art as he bowled several sorts of deliveries. While his traditional leg-breaks spinning away from the batters, his googlies were coming in.

Several people faced him in the clip but none were able to execute a convincing shot. The kid also hit the stumps a couple of times. It has to be noted that the child was bowling over the arm. Hence, his deliveries were pretty legitimate as per the norms of professional cricket.

Sachin Tendulkar impressed by the kid’s passion

Tendulkar was left amazed after coming across the clip as he lauded the kid’s passion. The 48-year-old also informed that one of his friends shared the video with him. “Wow! Received this video from a friend…It’s brilliant. The love and passion this little boy has for the game is evident,” Tendulkar captioned the post.

The comment section got flooded in no time as fans were also impressed by the kid. Tendulkar was also lauded for promoting young talent. Meanwhile, the former cricketer was recently associated with his former team Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021. The cricket star served the team as a mentor.

Unfortunately for him, the tournament didn’t pan out for MI the way he would have liked. Having won four of their first seven games, the five-time champions were fourth in the team standings at the time of season suspension. However, they couldn’t do well in the UAE leg and lost one game after another. Subsequently, the Rohit Sharma-led side couldn’t qualify for the final clash.
