Sachin Tendulkar sent congratulatory messages to the Indian cricket team after they defeated Bangladesh in the 2nd semifinals.
Here is what he said:
“So proud. Congratulations team India. Great performance by @imVkohli, A@ImRo45 & @SDhawan25! My best wishes for the finals against Pakistan,” tweeted Tendulkar, whose 75-ball 98 in a Pool A match against Pakistan in the 2003 World Cup will forever be talked about. India won that match by six wickets.
Tendulkar’s long-time opening partner Virender Sehwag, who many see as the next India coach, was at his humourous best.
“Well tried Pote (grandchild). Great effort to reach semis.Ghar ki hi baat hai (It’s all household matter). Father’s Day par Bete ke saath final hai. Mazaak ko serious mat liyo bete. (On Father’s Day, India will play their son (Pakistan) in the final. It’s a joke, don’t take it seriously!)
