Sachin Tendulkar Tests Positive for Covid 19; legendary Indian batsman in quarantine

Tendulkar recently led India Legends to the Road Safety World Series title in Raipur when they beat Sri Lanka Legends in the title fight.

“I tested myself and took all recommended precautions to ensure Covid was kept in check. However, today I tested positive for mild symptoms. Everyone else at home tested negative,” Tendulkar wrote.

“I have quarantined myself at home and am following all required protocols as recommended by my doctors. I want to thank all the health professionals who support me and many others across the country. Take care of you all,” added the batsman in his statement.

Tendulkar was the brand ambassador and tournament commissioner for the Road Safety World Series while also overseeing the tournament’s Indian outfit. The now 46-year-old Tendulkar showed glimpses of his former form in the tournament when he unfolded some of these square drives and straight drives to delight the audience after a long time.

Tendulkar also saw current Indian skipper matching in a rare record. Kohli, who made half a century in the second ODI, was the second batsman to score 10,000 runs in third place after former Australian skipper Ricky Ponting. Sachin Tendulkar had run 10,000 runs beating second place for India.

In this context, Kohli became the second batsman in the world to score 10,000 runs in a certain position and go into a rare zone as a batsman. India and England are currently playing a three-game ODI series that is currently rated 1: 1. India had won the first game in Pune by 66 runs, but England hit back in the second game with a smooth 6-wicket win to find parity.
