Indian batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar on Sunday said that all the prayers and good wishes are with Sushil Kumar who has entered the final of wrestling in the 2012 London Olympics.

“All our prayers and good wishes are with Sushil Kumar.” Tendulkar wrote on his Twitter page.

Sushil Kumar came from behind to beat defending champion Ramazan Sahin of Turkey 3-1 in his first bout and advance to the quarterfinals of the men’s 66kg freestyle wrestling event in the London Olympics here on Sunday.

The Indian, bronze winner in 2008 Beijing Olympics, lost the first two-minute period by two technical points but rallied to win the next two periods in fine fashion at the ExCel arena.

Sachin had earlier tweeted good wishes for Saina Nehwal, Mary Kom, Vijender Kumar and other Indian athletes competing at the Olympics.
