Legendary cricketer, Sachin Tendulkar shared a video of him playing Golf left-handed on Wednesday. In the video, Tendulkar can be seen getting ready to take a shot as he swings the club with all his might and completes the shot. The batter added the commentary of Aakash Chopra in Hindi to make the moment even more dramatic. He captioned the video ‘To all those who wanted me to play left-handed’.
The video actually shows the mirrored image of Tendulkar playing the shot, which means he was batting right-handed only.

Tendulkar has often revealed that he’s ambidextrous. He once said that though he plays cricket as a right-hander, he writes with his left hand. The legendary batter was also once seen batting left-handed in the nets. Since his retirement, the batter keeps posting fun videos to engage with his fans on social media.
Earlier, in a clip uploaded on his Instagram handle, he explained the benefits of being ambidextrous. He said that when it comes to eating with a fork and knife, he normally eats with his left hand but while using chopsticks, he uses his right as he is unable to eat with his left.
The legendary batter has the most number of runs in the longest format of the game with 15,921 runs to his name. He also has the record of maximum Test centuries (51).
Tendulkar finds himself at the top of the list of most ODI runs, with a total of 18,426 runs, including 49 centuries and 96 half-centuries. Regarded as the greatest batter of the 21st century, Tendulkar also has the incredible record of scoring 100 International tons in International cricket.
The 49-year-old announced his retirement from International cricket in 2013 after becoming the only player in the history of cricket to play 200 Test matches for his country. The batter has innumerable records to his name and was inducted into the ‘Hall of Fame’ by the apex cricket body in 2019. Tendulkar was also awarded the prestigious cricketer of the year award in 2010.
