It’s been almost a decade since former India batsman Sachin Tendulkar announced his retirement from international cricket. Tendulkar is currently leading India Legends in the second season of the Road Safety World Series. While India defeated South Africa Legends in their opening game, their match against West Indies Legends was washed out in Kanpur. Ahead of their game against New Zealand Legends on Sunday, Tendulkar was seen hitting the nets at the Holkar Stadium in Indore.
Tendulkar rolled back the days with an amazing lofted off-drive in the nets.
That lofted shot!
