Delighted fans set Twitter abuzz with snaps of the two ace cricketers hugging each other. For many, it was their favourite moment of the match to see “God” (Tendulkar) being crowned with a 'pagdi' (turban) and hugged by the “Prince of Kolkata” (Ganguly).
Comments trending are: “The best moment was when Sourav Ganguly hugged Sachin Tendulkar” and “When God met the prince.”
“What a moment!!! The two gr8s, Ganguly & Sachin hugging each #Goosebumps #ThankYouSachin @SouravGanguly @sachin_rt Treat to watch d scene,” tweeted one.
Fans have begun to register that Tendulkar now has only one match to play before retirement.
“Sachin Tendulkar has just one match left in his career. Let that sink in. #ThankYouSachin #IndvWI ... SACHINNNNNNNNNN SACHINNNNNNN,” wrote a fan.
With the Mumbai Test drawing closer, it is a frenzy for fans to cheer for their hero one last time.
“Friends the last match of @sachin_rt is too nearer !!!!! so come on lets cheer it for the "GOD OF CRICKET," said a fan.
