Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar was seen enjoying a much-needed tea break during a road trip on Wednesday. Like everyone driving a long distance, the cricket maestro, too, needed a small tea break! Sachin posted a video on Instagram, in which he can be seen buying a cup of tea from a shop while his car was parked on the side of the road. The former India batter also used the opportunity to express his fondness for the classic chai-toast combination as well. Sachin also offered a cup of tea to his son Arjun Tendulkar.
In the video, Sachin can be heard saying that he is driving on the Belgaum-Goa Expressway and had to stop to experience the taste of “hard toast.”
“By the way, this is Belgaum-Goa expressway. Chai, enjoy it with ghar ka rusk. Called toast, hard toast. It tastes incredible,” Sachin said in the video.
