Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar was one of the complete cricketers that this beautiful game has ever seen. Branded as a childhood prodigy, Tendulkar’s success at the International level wasn’t a byproduct of his obvious talent but it was of relentless hard work that he put in during the course of 24 years to harness that talent.
Tendulkar’s work ethic was something that separated him from the rest of the pack. His desire to keep getting better at his art was inspiring to say the least. And, it was one of the major reasons why he ended up as the greatest-ever batsman to have ever played this beautiful game.
He might have retired from elite cricket more than seven years ago but his habit of having impeccable preparation ahead of an outing on the pitch remains the same.
And, so it’s hardly surprising to see that the champion cricketer has hit the nets in order to be in the best possible batting form ahead of the upcoming edition of the Road Safety World Series.
The Master Blaster will be back in action next month when the Road Safety World Series- a tournament involving retired cricketers from countries like India, Sri Lanka, South Africa, West Indies, and Australia- gets underway.
The first edition of the tournament took place last year but it had to be postponed after just four matches due to the proliferation of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The tournament will commence next months and will be played amid a bio-secure environment of Raipur
Hence, Sachin, who will be leading the Indian Legends, has already hit the nets in order to prepare himself for the competition.
A fan account of the Master Blaster took to Twitter to upload a video where Sachin Tendulkar can be seen sweating it out in indoor nets.

Meanwhile, due to travel restrictions, Australian Legends will not take part in this years’ Road Safety World Series. And, to make up for their unavailability, England Legends and Bangladesh Legends have been added to the competition.
“It gives me immense pleasure to welcome the England Legends and the Bangladesh Legends to the Unacademy Road Safety World Series. Their participation will add to the competitive spirit of this exciting series, Senior member in the Road Safety Cell of Maharashtra and the founder of Road Safety World Series said.
”The importance of this series has gained further relevance given the fact that the number of deaths due to road accidents haven’t lessened even during the pandemic. We all need to carry on with our efforts to create maximum awareness towards road safety and save as many lives as possible on Indian roads,” he added.
