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.


Tendulkar who made his debut in 1989 is the leading run-scorer in both Test and one-day internationals. Tendulkar has amassed a total of 34,357 runs, thus achieving the demi-god status in Indian cricket.

Tendulkar has 15,921 runs in Test cricket and 18,426 runs in one-day internationals. The ‘God of cricket’ has broken many records during his 24-year long career. Tendulkar retired from all forms of cricket in 2013 after playing his 200th Test.

Tendulkar is the only cricketer to register 100 international centuries and he was the first player to score a double-century in ODI cricket. Tendulkar still has the highest number of centuries in both Test (51) and ODI (49) cricket.

Tendulkar is currently the mentor of Indian Premier League franchise Mumbai Indians for whom he played till 2013.
