Sachin Tendulkar smashes sixes batting left-handed

Sachin Tendulkar practise with lefthand

He has spent more than two decades in world cricket but not many would know that Sachin Tendulkar is ambidextrous. Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar surprised everyone when he opted to bat left handed during the team's practice session at the M Chinnaswamy stadium in Bangalore on 23rd Feb, Wednesday.

Tendulkar grabbed everyone's attention by choosing to bat left-handed with a few of his teammates and local bowlers bowling at him. He also did not wear gloves, while all other batsmen, who faced two deliveries each, wore their cricketing gears. Tendulkar sent the very first delivery he faced over the ropes before stepping out to hoist another six sixes, missing only one out of eight deliveries.

The Indian cricket team, which has been camping in Bangalore for their crucial Group 'B' league match against England on Sunday, had a rigorous batting session at the National Cricket Academy before shifting to the stadium.

Besides the rigorous batting session, the team also went through a brief 10-minute catching practice session.
