Sachin Tendulkar, 50, hits breathtaking straight drives, ‘puts Babar to shame’ | Cricket


Sachin Tendulkar is almost 51, has been retired for 10 years, turns up only occasionally to play the Legends League cricket or the one odd exhibition match focussed at charity. But even today, everytime he picks up the bat, it’s magic all over again. Some people are born for certain things, even if they let it go. For Tendulkar, it’s batting. A decade has passed since Tendulkar rode off into the sunset, but his genius is such as if nothing has changed. That crouch, the stance, that grimace of his face while facing the bowler… and of course, the shot-making. Tendulkar’s still got it.
