Sachin Tendulkar took to social media to pay tribute to former Australia cricketer Sir Don Bradman on his birth anniversary. Born on August 27, 1908, Bradman became one of the best Test batsman in cricket history. After his retirement, the New South Wales native became an administrator for Cricket Australia and died in 2001 at the age of 92 due to pneumonia. Posting an old picture of him with the Aussie great, Tendulkar tweeted, “The folklore of Sir Don Bradman’s batting genius is synonymous with excellence in sports. You will continue to inspire sports women and men forever. Thinking of you, Sir Don on your birth anniversary.”
The photo was well-received by fans. In the picture, Sachin can be seen enjoying a fan moment with Bradman.
Sachin’s former India teammate Yuvraj Singh also hailed the batting great.
