Former India captain and legendary batter Sachin Tendulkar played 'valley' cricket with locals in Kashmir during his visit to the Union Territories on Wednesday, February 21.

Tendulkar is currently on vacation with his family in Kashmir and visited MJ Sports Bat factory on Wednesday where he recalled getting his first cricket bat from his elder sister. The batting legend received Kashmir willow as his first bat from his sister Savita Tendulkar.

The Master Blaster on Thursday, shared a video from his X handle (formerly Twitter), where he can be seen playing cricket with Kashmiri locals and Indian Army soldiers on a hilly road in Gulmarg valley.

The soldiers and locals bowled at Tendulkar but couldn't get him out despite the cricket legend playing the final ball he faced with his bat reversed.

Apart from playing cricket with Kashmiri locals, Tendulkar also enjoyed riding on snowmobiles with his trainers alongside during his visit to Kashmir's Gulmarg. Before travelling to Kashmir, Sachin Tendulkar and his wife visited Agra, where they clicked the picture in front of Taj Mahal.

Earlier, legendary batter Sachin Tendulkar received a rousing welcome by the passengers on the flight, on which he was travelling to Kashmir.

In a video that went viral on social media, chants of 'Sachin, Sachin' reverberated around the aircraft as Tendulkar stood up to acknowledge the passengers for their warm welcome.

The God of Cricket

Sachin Tendulkar is one of the greatest cricketers to have graced the game of cricket. The 50-year-old has numerous records and achievements to his name during his career-spanning 24 years for Team India on international arena. Tendulkar currently holds the record for the most centuries (100) and runs (34,357) in International cricket.

Tendulkar's record of 49 ODI centuries was shattered by his former teammate and another batting legend Virat Kohli, who became the first player to record 50 centuries in ODI cricket during the semifinal match against New Zealand in World Cup at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai in November last year.

Sachin Tendulkar retired from cricketer after playing his match in whites at his home ground Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. The final Test match was his 200th Test match of his illustrious career.
