After thrashing Royal Challengers Bangalore by nine wickets, Tendulkar came to the post-match presentation ceremony along with Rayudu.
As soon as the presenter Robin Jackman announced Tendulkar's name as man-of-the-match, Tendulkar walked up with Rayudu and announced, "It will be bad if I don't share this with Rayudu." The legend then handed over the cheque of Rs 1 lakh to the youngster.
When Rayudu was asked about Sachin's gesture, the shy Hyderabadi could only mumble, "I thank him for my innings."
Rayudu scored an unbeaten 63 off 50 balls, while Tendulkar notched up 55 not out from 46 balls as the two put on an unbroken stand of 110.
