Legendary Indian cricketer, Sachin Tendulkar celebrated his 50th birthday on Monday and many of his former colleagues took to social media to extend their wishes to the batting stalwart. Virender Sehwag, his former opening partner, performed “Shirshasana”, a Yoga posture, and greeted Sachin in a very unique way. Yuvraj Singh, who also shared the dressing room with Sachin and played a key role in helping India lift his only World Cup Trophy in 2011, also recalled a few incidents involving him and the “God of Cricket”.

In the video, Yuvraj was heard saying, “One very special moment, when we won the Test match against England. 26/11 had taken place at that time. He had scored a 100, I celebrated by picking him up. He dedicated the knock to Mumbai victims. That was one very special moments.”

Sachin Tendulkar had then scored an unbeaten 103 off 196 balls in the second innings, while Yuvraj too returned not-out for 85 off 131 balls in the same innings, helping India chase down a hueg target of 387 runs to secure a superb win in the Test.

In addition, YuvrajSingh also mentioned how Sachin fixed his bat during the 2011 World Cup by just hammering a few nails into it. He recalled, “My bat was completely broken during the 2011 World Cup. We were playing South Africa in Nagpur and my bat was totally broken from the bottom. He puts in a couple of nails and I don’t know he fixed it.”

While these were tales from the cricketing field, Yuvraj also revealed another sport in that Sachin excelled, claiming it was impossible to beat him in that. “You CANNOT beat him in table tennis, no matter HOW Hard you try,” noted Yuvraj.

It has been a decade since Sachin Tendulkar bid farewell to international cricket, but his cricketing memories still remains evergreen.
