Cricket on the streets with Sachin

Cricket on the streets with Sachin

To the good old days of playing the game of cricket on the streets.

It must have been a shocker then, for unassuming fans playing next to a Colaba-Bandra Metro line-3 barricade in Mumbai, when Sachin Tendulkar himself walked out of his vehicle and joined them to play some late-night gully cricket on the streets of Bandra. A video is doing rounds on the streets where Sachin is playing street-cricket with some youngsters. The video displayed the batting maestro playing some deliveries while the boys bowled with a rubber ball.

Dressed casually in white shirt and blue denims, Sachin got down his swanky auto and met the metro workers who were playing cricket. A few shook hands with him before a small session of throw downs began.


Tendulkar is presently the team icon of Mumbai Indians (MI), the franchise he represented in the IPL.

Meanwhile, former Australia cricketer Michael Slater also posted a video on his Instagram account where he is seen playing gully cricket with kids in India. But now that he's retired from the sport (in 2013), the 'Master Blaster's focus has shifted from competing on the field to outwitting the opposition with his expertise.

In a star-studded career, he had seen him become the first batsman to cross the 200-run mark in the ODI format, Tendulkar managed to win the 2011 ICC World Cup in his hometown of Mumbai at the Wankhede stadium.
