Yuvraj Singh touched Sachin Tendulkar‘s feet after the latter dismissed him during the exhibition match between Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) and the Rest of the World (ROW) XI at Lord’s on July 5 last year. Yuvraj was dismissed on a score of 132 after he was caught by substitute fielder Matthew Renshaw at long on. The swashbuckling left-handed batsman did not miss out on the opportunity to take the blessings of the batting maestro, with whom he played 13 years of international cricket.

The match was held to mark the two-hundredth anniversary of the Lord’s Cricket Ground in London. While Yuvraj and Virender Sehwag were the Indian cricketers in the ROW XI team, Indian batting legends Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid represented MCC. ROW rode on Yuvraj’s 134-ball knock to finish on a score of 293 for the loss of seven wickets. MCC, in reply, were off to a blazing start courtesy Tendulkar’s stroke-filled innings of 44 from 45 balls, that included seven boundaries. He put up a 107-run opening stand with Aaron Finch before getting bamboozled by a Muttiah Muralitharan delivery.

While Brian Lara managed to add 23 runs to the total from 38 deliveries, Dravid was disappointingly bowled by Paul Collingwood off the first delivery that he faced. Finch however, was unstoppable on the occasion as he smashed six sixes and 23 fours, remaining unbeaten on a score of 181 from 145 balls to guide the MCC to an easy seven-wicket victory.
