Legendary Indian batsman Sachin Tendulkar recently finished the second season of the Road Safety World Series on a high as he led the India Legends to the title for two consecutive seasons, of the two played so far.
Even though Tendulkar himself got out for a duck, Naman Ojha’s century powered India Legends to a massive total of 195, chasing which the Sri Lanka Legends fell 33 runs short.
Tendulkar is 49 and so you don’t know if he will ever take the field again in such a competitive tournament. One might even consider this as Sachin Tendulkar’s last match at a competitive level.
Anyway, another striking fact that a Twitter user, with Twitter handle @Sachislife, recently pointed out has blown everyone away. This Twitter user brought to light an interesting fact that Sachin Tendulkar has won all of his last matches in the three formats and also in other tournaments.
Sachin Tendulkar’s last Test match was in 2013 against West Indies, which India won. His last ODI was in 2012, against Pakistan in the Asia Cup which India won. Tendulkar hit fifties in both of these matches.
His last World Cup match fulfilled his dream and ended India’s wait of 28 years: India defeated Sri Lanka in the final of the 2011 World Cup. He played only one T20I, India’s first T20I, in 2006 against South Africa which also India won.
Coming to Mumbai Indians, Tendulkar’s last IPL was in 2013 against SRH which MI won. MI won their maiden title that year, under Rohit Sharma’s captaincy. Tendulkar’s last Champions League match was the final against Rajasthan Royals, which also MI won.
Here is the tweet that has gone viral:

Having made his India debut in 1989, Tendulkar became an emotion in the country and worldwide with his extraordinary cricketing skills and his humble nature off the pitch. The master blaster still remains the leading run-scorer in Tests and ODIs, with overall 34357 international runs.
