How would you feel if your beloved Sachin Tendulkar supports England ahead of India. Well, in his latest tweet the batting legend has pledged his allegiance to England. But before you all get the wrong picture, let us tell you that the master blaster just tried to get under the skin of the fans.

He took to Twitter to show his support for the Three Lions for their upcoming semifinal clash against Croatia in FIFA World Cup. The former India batting star posted a cheeky video on Twitter and also tagged David James, the former England goalkeeper and the head coach of his football team Kerala Blasters.

At the start of the video, Tendulkar had a cricket ball in his hand as he perhaps tried to deceive the fans.

“Guys, this time I am backing England,” he said before taking a pause, kicking a football and then said:“in football.”

England have made it to the last four of A World Cup for the first time since 1990. Harry Kane & Co. have looked in good form at the competition and are just two wins away from leading England to their second World Cup. They made it to the semifinal with a comfortable 2-0 win over Sweden and are now up against a side which has punched above its weight. Croatia have defeated the likes of Argentina, Denmark and hosts Russia to book a place in the last four.

Meanwhile, not very far away from Russia, England will be looking to avenge their loss against India in the T20Is when the ODI series gets underway. Eoin Morgan & Co. were in good form when the T20I series started. However, the Men in Blue thoroughly dominated the series to win it 2-1.

The focus now shifts to the three-match ODI series, starting on July 12 in Nottingham.



An avid cricket lover, I just love this game more than anything. Writing about cricket keeps me closer to the game.
