After bidding adieu to international cricket in November 2013, Sachin Tendulkar has been very active on social media platforms. Be it his inspiring speech to transform India from a sport loving nation to a sport playing one or his message to bikers about the importance of wearing helmets while driving, Tendulkar keeps creating a buzz on the internet.

And now a video featuring Tendulkar playing cricket with kids in the streets of Mumbai has gone viral on Twitter. The video was posted by Tendulkar’s former teammate and childhood friend Vinod Kambli on Monday.

No sooner did the video appear online than people started thanking Kambli for sharing the video. Later, other users went on to post the complete video that shows Sachin coming out of his car and then approaching youngsters who are indulged in a game of street cricket. The youngsters look absolutely awestruck when Tendulkar joins them for a game of cricket.

Sachin is currently busy in the Indian Premier League (IPL) where he is Mumbai Indians’ team icon.
