India's batting legend Sachin Tendulkar returned to practice nets on Thursday as he gears up for the Road Safety World Series. Tendulkar will lead the Indian Masters side in the tournament, which also includes Virender Sehwag, Yuvraj Singh, Ajit Agarkar and Mohammad Kaif, among others.
Tendulkar charged down the track on practice nets to hit some of his trademark shots, and the fans are justifiably excited to see the ‘Master Blaster' back on the cricket pitch.
The 47-year-old recently played an over off Ellyse Perry and Anabelle Sutherland during the Australian Bushfire Bash, a relief match for the bushfires which destroyed a large part of the country's ecosystem.
Here is the video of Tendulkar taking on the bowlers in the practice nets:
On most of the deliveries, Tendulkar stepped out of the crease to smash the ball over long-off, and also hit one straight over the bowler's head. He also played a flick shot towards the end of the video.
The Road Safety World Series 2020 league will feature five teams ‘ India Legends, Australia Legends, South Africa Legends, Sri Lanka Legends and the West Indies Legends. India Legends will face off against the West Indies legends in the first match of the Road Safety World Series at the Wankhede Stadium on March 7, 2020. The India Legends team include the likes of batting great Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, Zaheer Khan and Yuvraj Singh.
