Viral: Sachin Tendulkar Posts Photos From Pahalgam, Shikhar Dhawan Finds ‘2 GOATs’ In It


Legendary batsman Sachin Tendulkar is currently enjoying his first visit to Kashmir with his wife Anjali and daughter Sara. Tendulkar, who retired from the game in 2013, played street cricket with locals in Gulmarg before enjoying the snowfall in Pahalgam. He was also seen riding a snow bike. The legendary batsman shared pictures from his recent trip to Pahalgam on social media. Tendulkar captioned the pictures on X (formerly Twitter), “Our 'first' snowfall in Pahalgam.” In one of the pictures, Tendulkar can be seen posing with a goat.

Reacting to the pictures, veteran batsman Shikhar Dhawan wrote: “Who else can see 2 goats in one frame?”

A few days ago, Tendulkar had shared a video of himself enjoying a game of street cricket with locals. In the video, Tendulkar also clicked some photographs with the local people. Despite holding his bat upside down, he challenged the bowler to dismiss him on the last ball.

However, the bowler failed to dismiss Tendulkar, who defended the last ball with the handle of the bat.

Tendulkar captioned the video, “Cricket and Kashmir: A match made in heaven!”

Earlier this week, Tendulkar had also visited the Aman Setu bridge – the last point on the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir's Uri sector.

During his visit that lasted for about an hour, Tendulkar interacted with soldiers at the command post near Aman Setu, officials said.

Little Master played roadside cricket with some boys in Uri. The boys carefully observed Tendulkar's footwork and how he played his shots.

The 50-year-old has a huge fan following across the world and is greeted with chants of 'Sachin-Sachin' wherever he goes.

In a video going viral on social media, Sachin was seen being encouraged by his co-passengers while clapping and chanting his name during the flight.

The cricket icon looked emotional at the appreciation he received and greeted other passengers on the flight with folded hands.

The chanting is common during most cricket matches in India and was a testament to his enduring popularity even after retirement.
