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 all-rounder and world number one female bowler Ellyse Perry.
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, Ellyse Perry placed a bowling challenge in front of Sachin Tendulkar on social media. Sachin accepted Perry's challenge and came down to bat in one over today.
Ellyse Perry wrote 'Can you face me one over Sachin.' To this, Tendulkar immediately responded and said, "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."
Sachin batted an over in the middle of the match, fulfilling Ellyse Perry wish. Sachin hit a four on Ellyse Perry very 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.
