Urging the International Cricket Council to make helmets mandatory, Tendulkar advocated for safety of the players. He posted a picture of India and SRH all-rounder Vijay Shankar getting hit on the head as he tried to complete a tight run against Kings XI Punjab on October 24 in Dubai.

"The game has become faster but is it getting safer? Recently we witnessed an incident which could’ve been nasty. Be it a spinner or pacer, wearing a HELMET should be MANDATORY for batsmen at professional levels. Request

@icc to take this up on priority," Sachin tweeted.

He also tagged India coach Ravi Shastri and recalled an incident when Shastri got hit by a full-toss bowled by Sunil Gavaskar during an exhibition match.

@RaviShastriOfc,this also reminded me of the time when you got hit after top edging a full toss bowled by Mr. Gavaskar during an exhibition game. That could’ve been a grave injury too but thankfully wasn’t! tweeted Sachin.
