Indian batting legend Sachin Tendulkar on Friday posted a video on social media from his playing days in which he can be seen batting on a waterlogged pitch. With his mates for company who are giving him throwdowns, Tendulkar can be seen ducking, swaying and even hitting a few drives leading to cheers and claps from those surrounding him.
Sachin captioned the video: "Love and passion for the game always helps you find new ways to practice, and above all to enjoy what you do.#FlashbackFriday". The video has since gone viral with many admiring the Little Master's hunger for runs and his committment towards the sport he holds dear.

A Twitter user wrote: "Love to watch" while another commented: "Miss you Sachin, love from Pakistan". Some celebrated Sachin's cult status: "salute to the greatest among all?????" and "Absolutely Genius cricketer of earth...." while a few others couldn't refrain themselves from bringing up the ultimate hyperbole often associated with Sachin: "Miss u God of cricket.....".
Recently Sachin revealed that he had to "beg and plead" to open the innings for India in an ODI against New Zealand in 1994, recalling a major turning point of his career.
The switch from middle-order to opening the innings proved to be a masterstroke as Tendulkar finished with a world record 49 hundreds in the 50-over format.
