MCC vs RoW: Sachin Tendulkar bats confidently after rain interruption

Jul 5, 2014

After a brief rain interruption, the players are back out onto the field for the Marylebone Cricket Club vs Rest of the World XI contest at Lord’s. The MCC team are led by Sachin Tendulkar and are chasing 294 for victory. Tendulkar opened the batting with Aaron Finch. Earlier, Yuvraj Singh’s 132 took RoW to the total of 293 after they were struggling at 68 for five.

Tendulkar has rolled back the years in this game and has attacked the bowling after the rain interruption. He smashed a few silken boundaries through the off-side and then drove one down the ground in trademark style to get four. In 10 overs, MCC are 61 for no loss and seem to be on course early on. One only hopes the rain stays away.
