Sachin Tendulkar in Kashmir, Visits Pulwama Bat Factory

Srinagar (Jammu and Kashmir): Legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar arrived in Kashmir on Saturday (Feb 17) taking fans by surprise. The little master is expected to meet the captain of the J&K Para Cricket Team Captain Amir Hussain Lone. Last month, Tendulkar had wished to meet the inspiring para cricketer.

Videos and pictures showed Tendulkar paying a visit to a bat manufacturing factory MJ Sports in Charsoo area of Pulwama district's Awantipora township along the Jammu-Srinagar highway.

The cricket legend was in awe of the intricate craftsmanship behind the production of cricket bats. The bat manufacturing facilities in Kashmir are known for producing high-quality bats. The craftsmen welcomed Tendulkar with open arms. The Master Blaster was also seen sipping Kashmiri tea at the bat manufacturing owner's house. Tendulkar, widely regarded as one of the greatest batsmen in the history of the sport, took a keen interest in the manufacturing process, engaging in discussions with the skilled craftsmen behind the scenes.

Sources said that during the visit, Tendulkar expressed his admiration for the craftsmanship involved in creating the perfect cricket bat. He highlighted the significance of using the right equipment for players, emphasizing the impact it can have on their performance. He is accompanied by his wife Anjali and daughter Sara.

Tendulkar is likely to meet para-cricketer Amir Hussain Lone, a talented athlete who has overcome numerous challenges to pursue his passion for cricket. Lone, who lost both his arms in a tragic accident, has become an inspiration for many aspiring cricketers. Last month, Tendulkar shared a heartwarming post and commended Lone for his dedication and resilience, encouraging him to continue pursuing his dreams.

"And Amir has made the impossible possible. I am so touched watching this! Shows how much love and dedication he has for the game. Hope I get to meet him one day and get a jersey with his name. Well done for inspiring millions who are passionate about playing the sport," Tendulkar tweeted on January 12.

As Tendulkar departed from Charsoo on Saturday, the factory echoed with a sense of enthusiasm and motivation, leaving a lasting impact on both the craftsmen and the aspiring cricketers who were fortunate enough to witness the cricketing legend's visit.
