Kolkata: Dec 3, 2012

Sachin Tendulkar, who has 200 international wickets to his name, during net practice at the Eden Gardens at Kolkata on Monday was seen giving bowling tips to a youngster who had come to bowl at the nets.

After a gruelling session at the nets, Tendulkar was watching others practice when he called out a boy who was bowling leg-breaks to India skipper MS Dhoni at the nets.

The boy came running to him and the master demonstrated how to bowl the leg-break. The boy kept on watching keenly as Tendulkar took pains to explain the position of the bowling arm and the wrist while delivering the ball.

After the nets, as Tendulkar picked up his kit bag and headed for the dressing room, the youngsters who had come to bowl at the nets gathered around him.

As they walked ahead, Tendulkar was seen giving out valuable suggestions to them as the budding players listened keenly.
