The World Cup match between India and England on Sunday was memorable for a whole lot of reasons. And the bonhomie on display between master blaster Sachin Tendulkar and Google CEO Sundar Pichai is one of them.
The BCCI posted an image of Pichai with batting great Sachin Tendulkar on its social media pages.
An avid cricket fan, Pichai had earlier said at an event organised by US-India Business Council that he is backing India and England to reach the final of the World Cup. He has also admitted of dreaming of being a cricketer during his growing up years and idolised Sunil Gavaskar and later Tendulkar.
Although India lost the match miserably, these pictures of the two stalwarts standing shoulder to shoulder stole the limelight. Tendulkar and Pichai were spotted together at the game and who knows what they discussed apart from cricket?
Sachin too shared the picture on his Twitter handle with a pun that has us chuckling:
Irrespective of the match's outcome, fans seemed over the moon with the picture of the two legends and responded with witty jokes and fun comments.
I wonder what conversation did they have ?— Harshal Mehta (@mharshal91) July 1, 2019
Ye to 'Sach' me "sunder" "pich" hai.— Niharika (@bumbling_laugh) July 3, 2019
For most Indian fans, this was a moment of great pride and they couldn't help but react with overwhelming joy and adulation.
