Many of us are aware that a Covid-19 test even,though quite harmless, gives jitters to others watching or undergoing one. However, to make it look easy and at the same time pull a fast one on the medical staff is something only a legend can do. One such prank was demonstrated by former Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar, who is currently is in Raipur with the India Legends squad for the ongoing Road Safety World Series.

Ahead of their match against England Legends on Tuesday, Tendulkar shared a video of him undergoing a mandatory Covid-19 test on his official Instagram account. In the video, the batting legend can be seen making a noise as the medical staff collects his nasal swab sample. While the India Legends skipper’s leaves the medical staff surprised, the batting maestro tries to ease down the situation by saying, “Tension aapko hai ya mujhe hai (Are you stressed or me)?”revealing he was acting and bursts into laughter.
