New Delhi: Legendary India batsman Sachin Tendulkar will face an over from Australia women’s team all-rounder Ellyse Perry at the Junction Oval.
During the innings break, Perry will bowl an over to Tendulkar with 10 of her Aussie teammates in the field as per reports. Perry threw out the challenge on social media saying, “Hey Sachin, it’s awesome to have you out here in Australia supporting the Bushfire match,”.
I know you’re coaching one of the teams but a few of us were sitting around last night chatting and we thought it would be absolutely amazing to see you potentially come out of retirement for one over in the innings break out at Junction Oval. “We’d love to have a bowl to you and obviously fetch a few balls from over the boundary that you’ve hit. “We thought it would be an awesome way to raise a bit more money for the Bushfire Appeal, which I know you’re already doing so much for. “If you’re at all up for it, we’d love to have you out here — I know there’d be some girls very keen to field some balls that you hit. So let us know, and thanks again for everything.”
Tendulkar said “Sounds great Ellyse,”. “I would love to go out there and bat an over (much against the advice of my doctor due to my shoulder injury). “Hope we can generate enough money for this cause, and to get me out there in the middle.”
