Sachin Tendulkar, the former Indian cricketer, is known for his legendary stature, skillful batting and great sense of humour, as the right-handed batter proved it once again during banter with RP Singh and commentator Aakash Chopra on Twitter. While commentating for a recent SA20 game, the former Indian pacer Singh and commentator Chopra were discussing the ‘non-striker runout’, with the pacer recalling an incident from his days with team India.
To add more, Singh recalled a game where he played a straight drive that deflected off the bowler’s hands, dislodging the bails at the non-striker’s end. Further, the left-armer revealed that the non-striker was Tendulkar and Chopra, who was a fellow commentator, took to Twitter to apologize to the legendary batter as he shared the video of the discussion.
Tendulkar, who quote tweeted the same, said that the straight drive was never his favourite shot. Further, the right-handed batter revealed that Singh used to take wickets even while batting, during his days with the Indian team. “For once, the straight drive wasn’t my favorite shot! @cricketaakash @rpsingh bhaiyya toh batting karte samay bhi wicket lete the! (RP Singh bro used to pick wickets even while batting!)” Tendulkar wrote on Twitter.

Can India win the second ODI against mighty New Zealand?
In other news, the Men in Blue will take on mighty New Zealand in the second ODI of the three-match contest on January 21, Saturday and it remains to be seen if they could carry on with the form from the previous game. As far as the first ODI is concerned, it was the Rohit Sharma-led team India who won the game by 12 runs after setting a target of 350, with Shubman Gill top-scoring for the team with his 208, while Michael Bracewell’s heroic 140 came in vain for the Kiwis.
Suryakumar Yadav, the star batter, would look to carry forward the momentum from the T20Is and contribute in the middle-order with his unorthodox batting. While Hardik Pandya’s continued mediocre run is a cause of concern, Ishan Kishan would be expected to fire in the lower order, who is playing in place of southpaw Rishabh Pant.
