Mumbai: He is considered as God in the sub-continent but even God can be left stranded as one of the greatest cricketers of all time, Sachin Tendulkar was out without a bus during a visit to a rural English village.
The former India captain, 42, asked for help from his fans on social media after appearing to get stuck in Great Haseley, near Oxford, on Saturday afternoon.
Sachin posted a montage of pictures on his Twitter and Instagram accounts, showing him casually dressed at a rural bus stop, accompanied by the message: “In Great Haseley, Oxfordshire. Missed the last bus, can anyone give me a lift??”
Thousands of fans volunteered for help and the message was retweeted more than 40 times and he was deluged with messages and offers of help. But it looks like his problems have been solved as on Sunday he tweeted a picture of himself in shades outside a church, with the message: “Enjoyed Oxfordshire.”
Tendulkar retired from cricket in November 2013. In 663 Test and one-day matches for India, he hit 100 centuries and scored 34,347 runs.
