Cricket icon Sachin Tendulkar gave a pep talk on Monday to members of the Indian women’s cricket team, who will travel to South Africa for a gruelling ODI and T20 series.

It is learnt that Tendulkar spoke to the members of the team captained by Mithali Raj, for over an hour, at the Mumbai Cricket Association’s facility at the Bandra Kurla Complex in Mumbai.
