‘Super Hero Mode On’: Irfan Pathan’s son boxes with Sachin Tendulkar – Watch

Former Indian cricket team all-rounder Irfan Pathan’s son Imran met legendary batsman Sachin Tendulkar during the Road Safety World Series in Mumbai on Saturday. In a video that was posted by Pathan on Instagram, the two of them were seen boxing with each other jokingly after they measured their heights. Pathan posted the video with the caption – “Super hero mode ON????! Imran boxing with @sachintendulkar , this kid has broken the cardinal rule & will realize it only years later!” The 3-year-old looked quite happy in the company of Tendulkar and the veteran was pleasantly surprised at the power of the punches thrown by the kid.

Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag used to torment bowlers in their prime and they did it once again on Saturday, putting the West Indies Legends bowling attack to the sword while adding 83 runs for the first wicket during the opening match of the Road Safety World Series between WI Legends and India Legends.

Sehwag (74 not out; 11×4) played all the shots in the book, including the traditional late cut, while Tendulkar (36;7×4) executed drives, upper cuts and stepped out to spinners, something he did with majestic grace all through his illustrious career.

Tendulkar hammered Suleiman Benn for three successive fours amid the familiar ‘Sachin-Sachin’ chants from the Mumbai crowd.

And as was the case earlier, the legend’s dismissal brought about ‘pin drop’ silence in the stadium.

After Mohammed Kaif (14) and Manpreet Gony (0) fell, Sehwag, in the company of Yuvraj Singh (10 not out), chased the 151-run target as the hosts won by 7 wickets.

Earlier, India Legends restricted WI Legends to 150/8 with pacers Zaheer Khan, Munaf Patel and spinner Pragyan Ojha grabbing two wickets.

Opener Shivnarine Chanderpaul made 61 (6×4; 2×6).

Brian Lara (17; 4×4), in his brief stay at the crease, showed the crowd why he is considered among the finest to have ever wielded the willow.
