It has been nearly ten years since former Indian 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 match, 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 Holkar Stadium in Indore.
Tendulkar rolled back the days with a great loft off-drive in the nets.
That lofty shot!

India Legends is the defending champion of the tournament, while New Zealand did not participate in the Road Safety World Series last year.

A beautiful half century from Stuart Binny and brilliant spin bowling spells from Rahul Sharma and Pragyan Ojha helped India Legends beat South Africa Legends by 61 runs
India batted first, posting 217/4 in 20 overs thanks to Stuart Binny’s unbeaten 82-run knock-off from just 24 balls.
In response, South Africa was limited to a total of 156 for nine.
