It’s Christmas week and cricketers are in a festive mood as they wished fans on social media. Legendary India cricketer Sachin Tendulkar, too, was not far behind as he celebrated the festival in a unique way after dressing up as Santa Claus and gave a surprise visit to underprivileged kids at the Ashray Child Care Centre in Mumbai.
The video was put up on Master blaster’s official Twitter handle which read- “Ho..Ho..Ho… Merry Christmas to all of you! Just amazing to be with these young ones at Ashray Child Care Centre. The joy on their innocent faces was just priceless! #BecomingSanta #MerryChristmas.”
Merry Christmas to all of you!?

Tendulkar’s visit to the center brought cheers on the faces of young children and he also played a game of cricket with them. After a brief interaction, the-45-year-old gave out gifts to the youngsters, much to their delight.
Tendulkar was recently in the news for slamming the ICC for rating Perth pitch as average. “Pitches play a crucial role, especially in Test cricket. In order to revive Test cricket and generate excitement, we need to provide more pitches like the one at Perth, where the skills of batsmen and bowlers are truly tested. This pitch was by no means ‘Average’,” Tendulkar tweeted on Sunday.
