His good friend on and off the field, Yuvraj Singh, came up with a cheeky reply on the post. Yuvraj Singh commented, “Oye Sachin Kumar ehhh.” and the reply became a sensation shortly after that. This is not the first time the duo have had fun together. They both are great buddies off the field and they get along really well. Sachin Tendulkar and Yuvraj Singh played together in the Road Safety World Series conducted last year to spread awareness about Road Safety.
Meanwhile, Winston Benjamin, the former West Indian cricketer requested Sachin Tendulkar to provide cricket equipment to help the local talent. In a video uploaded by a journalist, Winston Benjamin said that he needs ten to fifteen bats to help the local talent. “I don’t want the benefit. All I want is for somebody to say ‘here is some equipment’ – 10-15 bats, that is good enough for me. I don’t want 20000 US dollars. I just want some equipment so that I can give back to youngsters. That’s all I am asking,” Benjamin said in the video.
“Previously, we used to have a tournament in Sharjah where it used to be like a benefit game for players from different countries,” Benjamin added further.
