As Sachin Tendulkar was travelling throughout Kashmir and enjoying the beauty of Kashmir with his family, the former Indian cricketer stopped at a road and played a game of gully cricket with the locals.


The Master Blaster shared a video of the moment on his social media platforms with the caption, 'Cricket & Kashmir: A MATCH in HEAVEN!'

Tendulkar performed some lofted straight strokes and down-the-leg flips in the video. He playfully turned the bat over down towards the end, daring the bowler to remove him. But the bowler could not prevail, as the batting icon executed the shot with ease. 

The former Indian Cricket Team icon had earlier visited a local bat factory and talked about his first Kashmir willow bat, which was a gift from his sister. Moreover, a video showed Tendulkar sitting in an Indigo aircraft, and the stewardess made the announcement of his presence. It led to the fans chanting the iconic 'SACHIN, SACHIN!' chants.
