Two of India's biggest inspirations, Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar and Google CEO Sundar Pichai, were seen together in a single frame during India's ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 clash against the hosts England at Edgbaston in Birmingham on Sunday. India, who had been enjoying their undisputed run, finally lost their first game of the tournament by 31 runs. Nonetheless, the picture of the two icons ended up winning a lot of praises on social media.
The Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) took to Twitter to share a photo of Sundar Pichai and Sachin Tendulkar at the venue.
The Little Master later took to Twitter and relived the memories of his interaction with Google's Chief Executive Officer.
Now, Pichai has also commented on Sachin's tweet. He has come forward and quoted India's 2011 World Cup-winning skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni. This is what the Google CEO said.
Sundar Pichai, who was cheering for India, had earlier expressed his desire to watch an India-England clash at the finals of the World Cup at an event organized by the US-India Business Council. The Little Master, on the other hand, had made his commentary debut during the ongoing quadrennial event.
Even the netizens came forward to show their respect for both Tendulkar and Pichai. Here are a few tweets.
Meanwhile, India earned their semis spot after getting the better of Bangladesh by 28 runs at the same venue on Tuesday. The Men In Blue will now play their final league match against Sri Lanka at Leeds on Saturday.
