Sachin Tendulkar meets Sir Garfield Sobers
The second ODI between India and England was full of sports stars like Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly, MS Dhoni, and Suresh Raina. However, it was a bad day at the office for India as they lost the contest by 100 runs and as a result, the three-match series stands level at 1-1 with the decider to be played in Manchester on Sunday.
After the match, Sachin posted on Twitter “Got to watch the game at Lord’s with the One and Only Sir Gary!
Sir Garfield Sobers is considered to be one of the greatest cricketers to play the sport and he is also remembered as one of the best all-rounders.
Sobers played 93 Tests and 1 ODI for West Indies. In the longest format, he scored 8,032 runs and took 235 wickets. On the other hand, in his only ODI, he did not get a chance to bat, and with the ball, he took one wicket.
And if we are talking about Tendulkar, he is the highest run-getter in Tests and ODIs. In Tests, he also scored 15,921 runs while he registered 18,246 runs in ODIs.
He was the first batter to score a double century in ODIs. Tendulkar had called time on his international career in November 2013 and he had played his last Test against West Indies on home turf — Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai.
