The International Cricket Council (ICC) trolled Sachin Tendulkar after he posted a video of himself bowling in nets. The legendary batsman was trolled for stepping outside the line while bowling to his former team-mate Vinod Kambli. Tendulkar and Kambli took the time to play against each other during the lunch break at Tendulkar-Middlesex Global Academy camp.
The ICC took the opportunity to troll the master blaster, “Watch your front foot, @sachin_rt.” Tendulkar took his time to give a wicked reply as he wrote back, “At least this time I am bowling and not batting.. umpire’s decision is always the final decision.” Tendulkar was a victim of many controversial umpiring calls.
Felt great to be back in the nets with @vinodkambli349 during the @tendulkarmga lunch break!— Sachin Tendulkar (@sachin_rt) May 11, 2019
It sure took us back to our childhood days at Shivaji Park... 🏏
Very few people know that Vinod & I have always been in the same team and never played against each other. #TMGA pic.twitter.com/DzlOm12SKa
