Watch: Sachin Tendulkar turns into Santa Claus for Christmas


Batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar on Friday shared his Christmas greetings with all his followers on Twitter by posting a video where the former India player can be seen wearing a Santa Claus attire and he wished his fans Merry Christmas as well.


The video has been posted with the message, “Merry Christmas everyone! Christmas has always been about togetherness and giving. Let’s make it special for the people around us, even in the smallest of ways. Have a blessed one.”

However, the batting legend is quite expressive on social media ever since he has announced his retirement from the game. He shares photos and videos on social media quite often and interacts with his fans and followers. Recently, he opened up about India’s Test series and the captaincy of Ajinkya Rahane.

He has backed the stand-in captain Ajinkya Rahane to lead India in the absence of their regular captain Virat Kohli in the rest three Tests of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy against Australia. Kohli has returned home to be with his wife, Anushka Sharma for the birth of his first child.

Now, Rahane is ready to lead the Team India for the upcoming Boxing Day Test against mighty Australia in Melbourne, which is slated to begin on Saturday. However, Rahane has led the team previously on two occasions where India won. But this time, the task will be tough as India have already lost the first Test by 8 wickets which was a day-night affair as well.

“Ajinkya has led India earlier also, and his calmness doesn’t mean he is not aggressive. Each person has his way of showing aggression. Someone who doesn’t show aggression doesn’t mean he’s not aggressive. (Cheteshwar) Pujara, for example, is very calm and composed; his body language is into the game, focussed. But that doesn’t mean that Pujara is trying any less than anyone else,” Tendulkar told the Business Standard.

He further added, “Each person has his own way of reacting and responding to situations, but I can assure you everyone’s destination is one; they’ve different routes to get there — and that is how they can make India win. So, Ajinkya’s would be a different style, different strategies. That is up to the team management — how they plan, how the pitch plays, and what our batting and bowling line-ups would be.”
