As India clinically finished off Pakistan at Eden Gardens on Saturday, Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar watched from the stands.
As Dhoni and Kohli walked off the pitch after victory, India’s Test skipper raised his bat at Tendulkar.
The team waved towards him after the game as well. This gesture was a way to show how much they, along with the country, miss him.
The Master Blaster got quite emotional about the gesture which he said made him feel like he never left the team.
Tendulkar took to Facebook and shared an emotional post. This match also saw Kohli bowing to the legend after reaching fifty. It was a humble gesture which Tendulkar acknowledged while praising Kohli’s knock.
When one takes into account the chants of Tendulkar’s name during a ceremony ahead of the game, there is no doubt that the batting icon has not been forgotten by the cricket lovers.
