When legends Sachin and Richards met

New Delhi, Apr 22: Indian Premier League witnessed on Sunday (April 21), one of its most memorable moments when Sachin Tendulkar walked up to legendary Sir Vivian Richards, who has just been engaged as an advisor with rival team Delhi Daredevils.

It was a scene worth capturing when Daredevils mentor T A Sekar informed Tendulkar about Richards' arrival. Tendulkar who was engaged in a knocking session just dropped all work and trudged slowly towards the iconic West Indian as they were cheered lustily by all those present at the stadium.

First, they were engaged in bear hug and then Richards pointed at Sachin's abs and patted it as they shared a hearty laugh.

May be the King was pointing out that even at 40, Tendulkar doesn't have an inch of flab.

Then Richards took hold of Sachin's bat, had a close look and did a bit of shadow practise.

After a 10-minute session with Tendulkar, Richards along with Sekar walked towards his team's training session. As the boys welcomed him with a clap, he again had some words of wisdom in his pep talk during the official team huddle before the players dispersed.
