Sachin Tendulkar, the God of cricket, left the field a few years back and took retirement from the sport after creating some of the most historic records and innings in his 24 years long cricket journey. And, when Sachin walked the field for the last time, it was an emotional inning for every cricket fan all over the world, the same can be said about his speech at the end of the match.
Since then, while we may not have seen Sachin on the ground actually competing, he has been an integral part of team formation.
Sachin Tendulkar is currently associated with the IPL franchise Mumbai Indians as their team’s icon, but that’s not the news. The news is that a video of Sachin Tendulkar playing gully cricket with a bunch of kids on the streets of Mumbai is going viral. The maestro can be seen having a great time and enjoying the company of a couple of passionate crickets fans and players.

Every cricket player and fan from all over the world can only dream of playing cricket with the God himself, and somehow, the dream came true for these gully cricket players who’ll never in their life be able to forget this particular moment.
As for Tendulkar’s own IPL journey, his association with the league lasted 78 games and amounted to 2334 runs. During this period he scored one hundred and 13 fifties. Currently, MI hasn’t gotten off to the best of starts in the eleventh edition of the cash-rich extravaganza. Rohit Sharma-captained MI most recently suffered a seven-wicket loss to Delhi Daredevils to go three defeats in three matches played. Jason Roy scored a smash-and-grab 91* to take Delhi to victory in a last-ball thriller.
