WATCH: Sachin Tendulkar bats against Ellyse Perry | Cricket News
Tendulkar faced the Australian star, the cricket player of the year 2019, Ellyse Perry, and her former teammate Alex Blackwell. He said while walking towards the field that it was the first time in five years that he was raising a bat and the 46-year-old ended up hitting a four on the first ball he faced.
ICC posted a video of the saying in excess. “Ellyse Perry’s bowls, Sachin Tendulkar bats. That’s what dreams are made of.”

Tendulkar is in Melbourne as coach of the team led by former Australian captain Ricky Ponting, who is playing against a team led by former Australian player Adam Gilchrist. Perry, however, launched a challenge to Tendulkar on Saturday through a video message tweeted by the Australian women’s team. Tendulkar in turn accepted the challenge.
“Sounds great, Ellyse. I would love to go out and fight (very much against my doctor’s advice due to my shoulder injury). I hope we can generate enough money for this cause, and take me out in the middle,” he said.

Ellyse Perry threw four balls at Tendulkar, and the Master Blaster managed to score a limit on the first ball of the over.
The rest of the two balls were thrown by Sutherland. When Tendulkar was batting, the Australian women’s team did the fieldwork.
