A game of dodgeball followed before Prince William picked up the willow at Oval Maidan in Mumbai, with the ball in cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar’s hand.

Royal afternoon with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Bowled over by their humility,” Tendulkar tweeted.

Ajay Pawar, another child from the slums near Cuffe Parade, became a hero when he caught a ball lobbed high by Kate Middleton.

“The couple asked me my name and said well done,” said the eight-year-old. The outing concluded with a joyride on an open bus.
