On the demand of his fans, Indian cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar joined the current trend of right-handed cricketers using mirror images to seem as left-handed batters, and vice-versa, on social media.
On Wednesday, August 3, Tendulkar shared a video on Twitter, wherein the Master Blaster can be seen using his left hand to play golf. He can be seen hitting the golf ball with his left hand in the rearview mirror of a cart, but actually, he used his right hand to strike the ball.
However, it was the effect of the mirror that was clear to see in the video shared by the batting maestro on Twitter. The video has already garnered 409.9K views and over 19K likes on Twitter.
Tendulkar captioned the video: “To all those who wanted to see me play left handed ????????ÔłŹ.”
Notably, many people know that Tendulkar is ambidextrous and that he can perform some simple tasks with both hands. The legendary batter had earlier revealed that he uses his left hand for eating and writing, and uses his right to play cricket or when he needs to use chopsticks.
On his Instagram, Tendulkar explained the advantages of being ambidextrous, saying he uses his left hand for eating with a fork and knife, but he has to use his right hand while using chopsticks, as he is unable to use his left hand. He also called himself a "complicated person".
He added that his left hand manages all the writing and eating work, while his right-hand handles all the wooden sticks, including cricket bat.
