Glimpse of Sachin Tendulkar’s lap shot© Twitter
Rain played spoilsport in India Legends vs New Zealand Legends match at the Road Safety World Series on Monday but Sachin Tendulkar made sure he entertained the fans with his stroke play in the limited time. Notably, only 5.5 overs of play was possible at the Holkar Cricket Stadium in Indore before rain forced the match to end without a result. Tendulkar had scored 19 runs off 13 balls by then. His unbeaten knock included four fours, one of which came through a superb lap shot which is going viral on social media.
Former New Zealand pacer Kyle Mills bowled around the good length area but Tendulkar played a beautiful lap shot on it for a four towards the deep fine-leg boundary.
