Sachin Tendulkar has long hung his boot but he continues to amaze everyone with his cricketing skills. It has been nine years since the legendary cricketer bid adieu to international cricket but he has still got that class. Sachin Tendulkar is currently taking part in the second edition of the Road Safety World Series wherein he is representing India Legends. And in his latest appearance for the team, Tendulkar dished out some stylish strokes that left cricket fans in awe of the Master Blaster.
In the match between India Legends and New Zealand Legends, Tendulkar came to open the innings for IL along with Naman Ojha. Although the match got abandoned due to rain, the 49-year-old gave immense joy to his fans during his stay at the crease. Sachin scored 19* off 13 balls during his stay at the crease with the help of four boundaries.
One of those boundaries came from a glorious scoop cum lap shot Tendulkar played in the fifth over of India Legends’ innings. The batter effortlessly scooped a good length delivery from Jacob Oram for a boundary in the fine leg region. Before this shot, Tendulkar also played a clever lap shot against Kyle Mills. But the best one came in the very first over when the batter opened his account with a beautiful backfoot punch.
Sachin sent everyone down memory lane with his shot as he nonchalantly punched a good length delivery from Kyle Mills on the fifth ball of the first over. Everything about that shot was perfect- the balance, timing, placement, and the result. The batter also played a pull shot against Shane Bond for his second boundary.

There is only one God!
As Sachin left everyone in awe with his skills at the age of 49, it was proved that there is only one ‘God of Cricket’. Former India cricketer Amit Mishra spoke for all those cricket fans who saw these four boundaries from Sachin as he tweeted “There can be many GOATs of cricket but there will always be just one GOD.”
