Pune: JetSynthesys, a digital and technology company, on Wednesday announced the launch of a game on cricket, ‘Sachin Saga Warm Up’ under its gaming arm Playizzon. The company is associated with cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar, who trains the players to gain expertise in playing the game. Sachin Saga Warm Up is a batting game, where players across the globe can compete in real time. This 2 minute powerplay allows users to get assistance from Sachin himself on shot selection based on where the ball pitches and what kind of delivery it is. The game targets people belonging to the age group of 8 years 45 years and is also going to be made available in 7 languages.

Sharing his thoughts on the game Tendulkar said, “The Sachin Saga Warm-up will serve as a prequel to “Sachin Saga” where gamers across age groups can play an exciting new format of cricket digitally! I look forward to receiving the feedback as users play each delivery on its merit.” Tendulkar few days back took to social media to pay his tribute to MS Dhoni, who had stepped down as ODI and T20I captain. “Congratulations to MSD on a wonderful career as a captain leading India to success in both T20 and ODI World Cups. Have seen him emerge from an aggressive player to a steady and decisive captain. It’s a day to celebrate his successful captaincy and respect his decision. Wish MSD the very best,” Tendulkar wrote on Twitter.

Tendulkar holds the world record for most ODI (18,426) and Test runs (15,921), representing India from 1989 to 2013.
