Danielle Wyatt is perhaps the most famous overseas women cricketer in India. The England star first grabbed the limelight in this cricket-obsessed nation when she sensationally gave India batting star Virat Kohli a marriage proposal in 2014 after the right-handed batsman’s exploits in the ICC World Twenty20.
Kholi marry me!!!

She had also praised Kohli on several occasions and had recently tweeted a picture of a bat presented to her by Kohli. Well, after posting several tweets expressing her liking for Kohli, the English cricketer, on Tuesday (January 2), posted a tweet for another Indian cricketer and this time the tweet was for none other than the legendary Sachin Tendulkar.
The 26-year old posted the message after watching Tendulkar’s biographical film ‘Sachin: A Billion Dreams’. Posting a screenshot from the docudrama, she wrote:
What a top bloke. @sachin_rt #respect

The movie was released last year and was received well by the audience all over the country. Directed by James Erskine, the movie compiled footage from Sachin’s games throughout the years and never-seen-before visuals of the legendary batsman with his friends and family. The biopic also traced Sachin’s life right from the time he was born to the time he brought down curtains on his international career in Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium in 2013. The Master Blaster himself narrated the whole movie.
Sachin, who still holds the record of being the youngest to play for India, bowed out of the game after representing India for well over two decades. He represented India in a world record 200 Tests, and 463 ODIs and retired with almost all the significant batting records to his name.
The only player to have scored 100 international centuries, the first batsman to score a double century in ODIs, the holder of the record for the most number of runs in both ODI and Test cricket, Tendulkar is the most decorated batsman in the history of the game.
