Indian cricket icon Sachin Tendulkar bats for Kashmir tourism

Legendary Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar on Wednesday shared a "beautiful experience" from his Kashmir trip which will always be "etched" in his memory and the Master Blaster also emphasised the importance of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's statements.

The cricket icon also visited a cricket bat manufacturing plant. For those who don't know, Kashmiri willow bats have a global reputation for excellence. Tendulkar also lauded the craftsmanship of the Kashmir Willow bats, describing them as great examples of 'Made in India' products. The legendary cricketer also encouraged people to visit Jammu and Kashmir, which he referred to as "a precious jewel of Incredible India," as well as other places in India.

"The Kashmir Willow bats are great examples of "Make in India, Make for the World." They have travelled across the globe, and now I recommend people across the globe, and India, to come and experience Jammu & Kashmir, one of the several jewels of @incredibleindia," Tendulkar noted.

During his visit, the cricket icon fulfilled his promise and met the Jammu and Kashmir's Para cricket team captain Amir Hussain Lone. The renowned Indian batter finally met Amir Lone, who had previously captured Tendulkar's attention with a video of himself training in Kashmir.

The two spoke about cricket, as the Kashmir batter couldn't conceal his enthusiasm and joy at having met his role model. Tendulkar also praised Amir, calling him a great inspiration for this generation's children, citing his pure will, determination, and passion for the game that propelled him to where he is now. Tendulkar gifted a bat to Amir which has a personalised inspiring message that read "To Amir, the real hero. Keep inspiring," with his signature.

During his trip, the former batter was also seen playing 'gully cricket.' Tendulkar also shared a short clip of him playing cricket with the locals. In the video, it can be seen Sachin was travelling with his family but the cricket maestro stopped his car to hit some shots in between the snowy mountain. The 50-year-old did not hesitate to loft the ball over the head of the bowler and play a few drive shots.
