Sachin Tendulkar Shares ‘Dil Chahta Hai Moment’ With Yuvraj Singh, Anil Kumble Suryakumar Yadav Reaction Can’t Be Missed
Cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar retired from the game in 2013 but will always remain a big name in the game owing to the many records he holds. Making his debut against Pakistan in 1989, Sachin became the highest run scorer in the history of Test cricket with a total of 15921 runs. He also ended his career as the highest run-scorer in the ODI format with 18426 runs. Apart from his achievements on the field, Sachin is also known to be active on social media. Recently, the former batsman took the internet by storm after he posted a picture with Anil Kumble and Yuvraj Singh in Goa.
Taking to Instagram, Sachin posted a picture with his former teammates, making a reference to the 2001 cult-classic film, Dil Chahta Hai. “Goa Mein Hamara Dil Chahta Hai Pal! Who do you think Akash, Sameer and Sid are?” Sachin captioned the picture. Dil Chahta Hai is a Bollywood movie, which was released in 2001 and starred Aamir Khan, Akshaye Khanna and Saif Ali Khan in lead roles.
The picture soon went viral on the social media platform and India batsman Suryakumar Yadav wrote a hilarious comment on the post, “With due respect to Akash Sid Sameer.”
Sachin, Kumble and Yuvraj were part of the Sourav Ganguly-led Indian team that reached the 2003 World Cup. Kumble skipped it in 2008, while Sachin and Yuvraj were part of the Indian team that lifted the prestigious 2011 ODI World Cup trophy under the captaincy of MS Dhoni.
Sachin has scored 34,357 runs across all formats in 200 Tests, 463 ODIs and 1 T20I for India. The Master Blaster holds the record for most international centuries with 100 centuries. He won the World Cup in 2011 at Wankhede. Fans will also see a life-size statue of Sachin at the Wankhede Stadium, which will be unveiled during the 2023 ICC World Cup.
It will be erected on a circular platform outside the MCA lounge. The MCA is celebrating the master blaster’s golden jubilee year at the Wankhede and the statue is a part of the festivities.
