Sachin Tendulkar comes up with witty reply after ICC trolls him on Twitter

Published

Sachin Tendulkar’s batting excellence is common knowledge for any cricket fan but his bowling was also a major weapon for the Master Blaster and over the years, he has taken many important wickets with his brand of spin.

In a video posted on Twitter, Tendulkar and his friend Vinod Kambli were shown hitting the nets at the Tendulkar-Middlesex Global Academy camp in Navi Mumbai with Tendulkar bowling couple of trademark leg spinners.

“Felt great to be back in the nets with @vinodkambli349 during the @tendulkarmga lunch break! It sure took us back to our childhood days at Shivaji Park… Very few people know that Vinod & I have always been in the same team and never played against each other. #TMGA,” wrote Tendulkar on Twitter.

The video showed that Tendulkar overstepped while bowling a delivery and the official Twitter handle of the International Cricket Council (ICC) took the opportunity to troll the legendary cricketer. “Watch your front foot, @sachin_rt 😜,” the handle wrote on Twitter with a picture of umpire Steve Bucknor.

Steve Bucknor and Tendulkar share an interesting relationship as during his playing days, he was the victim of a number of controversial umpiring calls. However, Tendulkar came up with a witty reply to the tweet as he wrote, “At least this time I am bowling and not batting 😋 .. umpire’s decision is always the final decision. ☝🏻

Tendulkar’s son – Arjun Tendulkar – put up a decent all round show as Aakash Tigers Mumbai Western Suburb defeated Triumph Knight Mumbai North East by five wickets in the opening game of the T20 Mumbai League. The youngster snapped up a wicket and then chipped in with 23 runs for Aakash Tigers on his debut.

Sachin Tendulkar suggests unique alternative to ICC’s boundary rules to decide winner

Published

The final of World Cup 2019 saw a controversial ending with the hosts England being declared the winners after the Super Over against New Zealand ended in a tie. The Eoin Morgan-led side had scored higher number of boundaries in the regulation overs, and as per ICC rules, won the match and were crowned as the champions. As the debate over the rule carries on, India cricketing legend Sachin Tendulkar came up with a unique alternative to decide the winner.

“I feel there should be another super over to decide the winner, instead of considering the number of boundaries scored by both teams. Not just in a World Cup final. Every game is important. Like in football, when teams go into extra time, nothing else matters,” Tendulkar was quoted saying by 100mb.

“No one lost the final,” New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson said Tuesday as his team tried coming to terms with the gut-wrenching defeat against England in the World Cup’s greatest summit clash. Cricketers, current and former, shared New Zealand’s pain on losing the title on boundary count with many of them asking for a “serious look” into the rule, slammed as “absurd”.

“At the end of the day nothing separated us, no one lost the final, but there was a crowned winner and there it is,” Williamson told Newstalk ZB.
