Watch : Sachin Tendulkar and Virat Kohli reunite at the Wankhede ahead of MI Vs RCB!

Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli and the Wankhede Stadium these 3 three things in Indian cricket has experienced a figurative passing of the torch moment between Kohli and Sachin.

In 2011, as Tendulkar walked returning to the dugout following his departure at 31/2 in the World Cup final—in what would be his final World Cup—a 22-year-old Kohli entered the field. Kohli and Gautam Gambhir  produced a game-winning 83-run combo to draw India back into the match. The top two century makers in international cricket had a brief discussion, which Tendulkar most recently shared on Twitter.

“The ball is swinging even now,” the veteran told Kohli, who went on to win hearts by stating that , “He (Tendulkar) has carried the burden of an entire nation on his shoulders. It’s time we carried him on our shoulders.”

During Tendulkar’s dismissal in his last inning for India in 2013, the then-25-year-old Kohli entered the field and hit a boundary on the first ball. Therefore, every remembrance would have come back as the two reunited together on Monday at the exact same setting. Not only for them, but additionally for everyone who saw them catch up prior to Tuesday’s match between the Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore.

The two clubs contested a match to kick off the 2023 Indian Premier League season, with RCB handing the five-time winners an eight-wicket beating at Bangalore’s Chinnaswamy Stadium.

Bangalore has only won four of their subsequent nine games since that time. Due to a lower net run rate than RCB, Mumbai has also won five out of ten games this season and is currently sixth in the standings. MI also have a 50% home record, with two victories and two losses so far.
