The Indian batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar has a wonderful message for the Men in Blue who are currently in the island nation. He has said that his best wishes are always with the team and will continue to support even if the team’s performance doesn’t meet the expectations all the time.
Virat Kohli led Indian side are set to play the first ODI of the 5-match series against Sri Lanka on Sunday. The team thrashed Sri Lanka in the Test series by 3-0 convincingly and once again proved everyone that they are the best in the world in the longest format of the game. The side is expected to return home in the second week of September post the conclusion of the lone T20I on 5th of the same month.
Tendulkar expressed that he is always with the team, doesn’t matter if it is men’s or women’s squad. “Our good wishes are always with the (Indian) team. Be it men’s team or women’s team,” Sachin told reporters ahead of the first ODI in Dambulla.
“Our good wishes are there, we will go with them, whether their performance is good or it is little less than our expectations. I will say that we will continue to support the team and I expect that you are there with me,” the batting legend added.
Tendulkar batted for a fit and healthy India
The right-hander also stated the importance of staying fit and healthy in the modern era. He was speaking after flagging off the IDBI Federal Life Insurance Mumbai Half Marathon in the suburban Bandra Kurla Complex. He also flagged off the 10K and 5K run as part of the event amid rains.
“We are talking about the good health of our nation and clearly in sometime, we are going to have healthier people around, because it is about living a healthy lifestyle, being fit, being more active and what is going to happen after that is something that we can be proud of. Because I believe that good fitness will always bring more consistent and better results in whatever you want to be in life,” the master-blaster said.
