Sachin Tendulkar, India batting legend, took to micro-blogging site Twitter to express his appreciation to fans who gave the inaugural season of India’s newly launched domestic football tournament, the ISL an overwhelming response. Tendulkar is co-owner of the Kerala Blasters team which made it to the finals but failed to clinch the title losing to Athletico de Kolkata in the end.
