The Bushfire Charity Match to be held to collect funds for the Bushfire Victim in Australia was played on Sunday (9 February). In this match, Sachin Tendulkar completed the challenge of Australian women's cricket team allrounder Alice Parry. Sachin Tendulkar came out to bat an over in the middle of the match and hit a four off the first ball.
In fact, the day before this match, Ellis Parry placed a bowling challenge in front of Sachin Tendulkar on social media. Sachin accepted Parry's challenge and came down to bat in one over today.
Alice Parry wrote, 'Can you face me one over, Sachin.' To this, Tendulkar immediately replied, "Yes, I will do it at all, although the doctor has refused to do something like that due to a shoulder injury, I will still play an over in the field." I hope we will raise enough money for bushfire victims with this noble cause and you can also get me out.
Sachin batted an over in the middle of the match, fulfilling Parry's wish. Sachin hit a four off Parry's first ball. He retired from cricket on 16 November 2013 at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Now Sachin returns to the field after five and a half years.
