Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar on Tuesday challenged former Indian cricketer Vinod Kambli to rap ‘Cricket Wali Beat’ song. Sachin was seen in the video giving a deadline of one week to Vinod Kambli to do the Challenge.

The ultimate idea of ‘Cricket Wali Beat’ rap is that it is a collaboration by between Sachin Tendulkar and music star Sonu Nigam. The rap is nothing but a dedication to each and every cricketer that Sachin Tendulkar played alongside in the six ICC World Cup tournaments he had played.

Meanwhile, former Indian legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar and former West Indies bowler Courtney Walsh were also ready to coach the team in the Ponting XI and Warne XI respectively in the Bushfire Cricket Bash.

The match which is scheduled for February 8, will be played in a bid to raise funds. All the match profits will go to the Australian Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery Fund.

“Mr. Kambli, I challenge you to do the rap of my song #CricketWaliBeat! You have 1 week. 😜@vinodkambli349,” Sachin wrote on his official Twitter handle.

Character of pitches in New Zealand has changed: Sachin Tendulkar

Sachin Tendulkar had recently said that the character of the pitches in New Zealand has changed over the years. India will play five T20Is, three ODIs and two Tests during the full-fledged tour starting with the shortest format on January 24 at Eden Park, Auckland.

The former batting great said that the pitches in New Zealand have become a lot more batting-friendly over the years. Keeping this factor in mind, India have all the ingredients to pose a major threat to the hosts during the upcoming series according to Sachin.

“Of late, the Tests in New Zealand have been high scoring and surfaces have changed,” Sachin Tendulkar told PTI during an exclusive interview.

“I remember when we played in 2009, the Hamilton pitch was different compared to other pitches. Other pitches got harder (Wellington and Napier) but not Hamilton. It remained soft.

“But Napier became hard with passage of time (where Gautam Gambhir scored an epic match-saving 12-hour hundred in 2009). So, from my first tour (in 1990 till 2009), I realised pitches got harder with passage of time,” Tendulkar said.
