Cricket icon Sachin Tendulkar, who often does his bit to encourage and inspire the masses all across the globe, has some flattering words to say about his former team-mate Mohammad Kaif’s son named “Kabir”.
Ever since his retirement in 2013, Tendulkar is fairly active on social media sites. He regularly posts some unique stuff on his official Twitter page. Recently, the batting maestro was a part of a campaign through which he raised awareness amongst people to wear the helmet while riding a vehicle. The Master Blaster also highlights the achievements of many lesser known sportspersons through his informative tweets.
On Friday (December 29), Sachin shared a very adorable video of Mohammad Kaif’s son playing cricket.
“Junior Kaif smashing it beautifully through the covers. Well done. Keep playing always,” the Little Master wrote in the video caption.
Delighted with Tendulkar’s praising remark for his little one, senior Kaif responded back and thanked the batting legend for his immense contribution to transform India as a sporting nation.
“I always found it difficult to pick you in the nets @sachin_rt Paaji,whether it would be leg-spin,off-spin,cutter, wrong-un. My son Kabir seems to have handled your bowling much better :) And as you say ,India will transform when we keep playing a sport atleast.With you,always!” Kaif wrote in his reply.

Just a week ago, Tendulkar had posted a video on various social media platforms wherein he stressed on building a sporting culture in the country. He put forward his roadmap to accomplish those goals through three 'I' - Invest, Insure and Immortalise.
"We must invest our own time and effort and ensure our wellness and each one of us must to start adopting one active sport and play regularly," Tendulkar had said in the 15-minute long video.
Tendulkar, who was nominated as the Rajya Sabha member back in 2012, also requested the ministries of Human Resource Development and Sports to work towards transforming the school structure so that ‘sports should be at par with other subjects at school.’
"Our citizens and school children should have access to more sports infrastructure. Open spaces and playgrounds should be retained and along with smart cities, we should look at building smart sport cities," he had further quoted.
It is my endeavour to transform India from being a sport loving nation to a sport playing nation. I urge you all to participate in this effort and help make my dream, our dream. Always remember, dreams do come true! Jai Hind???????? https://t.co/h6l3Iq5lHT— sachin tendulkar (@sachin_rt) December 22, 2017
