Sachin Tendulkar’s reply to Brain Lara’s video post

Former West Indies Cricketer Brain Lara shared a glipse of his son Zende who was learning to bat with a little help and some instructions from his mother. Brain Lara who is considered as one of the greatest batsman of all time holds several cricketing records, including the record for the highest individual score in first-class cricket, with 501 not out for Warwickshire against Durham at Edgbaston in 1994.

Lara recently posted a video on his Instagram where his con seen learning to bat with some advice from his parents.

The video soon caught the attention of his good friend Sachin Tendulkar. The master blaster shared the pic of Lara’s son with a childhood picture of himself holding the bat in a similar manner.

“@brianlaraofficial I know of another boy who had a similar grip and didn’t do too badly in international cricket,” Tendulkar wrote.
