Two of India’s greatest cricketing icons, Sachin Tendulkar and Virat Kohli, were recently seen attending a spiritual satsang in New York City. This rare sighting of the batting legends comes amidst India’s ongoing T20 World Cup 2024 campaign in the United States and the West Indies, adding a unique twist to their high-pressure sporting commitments.

The image of Kohli and Tendulkar together was shared by renowned sports host Vikram Sathaye, known for his show ‘What the Duck.’ The picture, which also included journalist Sunandan Lele, quickly went viral across social media platforms. Sathaye humorously captioned his post, “Satsang with the combined energy of 185 plus international hundreds ❤️. I covered my bald head because I didn’t want to disturb the halo & energy.”

 

Notably, Sachin Tendulkar, a former Indian cricket legend, is currently in the United States for the marquee event and attended the high-stakes match between India and Pakistan, which India narrowly won by six runs. His presence added an extra layer of excitement and inspiration for the Indian team and fans alike.

This satsang marked Kohli and Tendulkar’s first public appearance together since the 2023 ODI World Cup semi-final, where Kohli surpassed Tendulkar’s long-standing record for the most one-day international centuries.

Virat Kohli’s achievement of his 50th ODI century in that match was a poignant moment as he paid an emotional tribute to his mentor, bowing down in respect. Virat Kohli is set for a challenging role as an opener in the T20 World Cup. Despite an outstanding IPL season, where the 35-year-old was the highest run-scorer with 741 runs, Kohli has struggled in the World Cup, falling for single-digit scores in India’s first two matches against Ireland and Pakistan.

However, the Indian team is expected to persist with Kohli at the top of the order when they face the USA on June 12 at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium. A victory in this match would secure India’s place in the Super Eights phase of the tournament.
