Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar is currently leading the India Legends in the ongoing Road Safety World Series and the right-handed batter is showing no signs of rustiness with the bat. The maestro had retired from international cricket in 2013 but when you see him batting, it doesn’t look like Sachin has called time on his career. On Thursday, the 49-year-old smashed 40 runs off just 20 balls against England Legends, including three massive sixes.
Opening the batting against England Legends, Tendulkar got off the mark through a single. In the over against Chris Tremlett, Tendulkar decided to go berserk as he smashed him for 6,6 and 4. The second six has now gone viral as it saw the Master Blaster dancing down the track and smashing it over the boundary fence.

The shot immediately went viral on social media, and the fans have started comparing this with Tendulkar’s famous innings at Sharjah in 1998 famously known as the “Desert Storm”.
