The iconic former Indian batsman, Sachin Tendulkar, made an unexpected appearance at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai, where the Afghanistan cricket team had assembled for their upcoming match in the ongoing ICC ODI World Cup 2023. Afghanistan is set to face the Pat Cummins-led Australia on Tuesday, November 7, and their preparations for the game were in full swing.
Sachin Tendulkar’s visit had a dual purpose: to spend time with the Afghan team and to offer them words of encouragement. He honored Mohammad Nabi with a memento and engaged in a heartening pep talk with the entire squad, support staff, and even some ground staff, forming a huddle of motivation and inspiration.
