Sachin Tendulkar recently participated in the Road Safety World Series T20 tournament where he captained the India Legends team. He was in fine form with the bat, especially towards the end of the tournament as India Legends beat Sri Lanka Legends in the final to clinch the title.
His top score of 65 in the tournament came against the West Indies Legends in the first semi-final.
Sachin Tendulkar, one of the greatest batsmen to ever play the game, brought the curtains down on his glittering international career in 2013. He finished with 100 international hundreds and over 34,000 international runs.
