In the request of Australian women’s cricket star Ellyse Perry, Sachin Tendulkar finally came out to bat on Sunday (9th February) during the innings break of Bushfire Cricket Bash.

Initially, Sachin Tendulkar joined in that game as a coach. Tendulkar coached Ponting XI that was led by the legendary Australian World Cup-winning captain Ricky Ponting. But after Ellyse Perry requested Tendulkar to set up more funds for the bushfire affected communities, the legendary Indian cricketer came to bat for an over. To accept that request, Tendulkar also revealed that he had to take that decision against the advice of his doctor due to his shoulder injury.

After Ponting XI set the first innings total of 104/5 (10 overs), Sachin Tendulkar came to bat. He borrowed everything to bat in that one over. The right-handed batsman got the bat from Daniel Christian who was also representing for Ponting XI.

Sachin Tendulkar faced Ellyse Perry and Annabel Sutherland

On the first delivery of Ellyse Perry, Tendulkar hit for a boundary. It was a short delivery which Tendulkar flicked for a four. The legendary Indian cricketer comfortably handled the next three balls of Perry. Youngster Annabel Sutherland delivered the last two balls and Tendulkar also handled those balls comfortably.

After a long time, we saw Sachin Tendulkar in batting. Last time we saw him during the Cricket All-Stars Series at Los Angeles in November 2015. In that three-match series, Tendulkar led Sachin’s Blasters, and his opponent was Shane Warne-led Warne’s Warriors.

Coming back to the Bushfire Cricket Bash, Ponting XI beat Gilchrist XI by just one run. In that 10 overs match, while Ponting XI scored 104/5, Gilchrist XI replied with 103/6. The highest run-scorer from both sides were Brian Lara (Ponting XI) and Shane Watson (Gilchrist XI) as both were retired out for 30 runs.
