Watch video: Brian Lara's son reminds Sachin Tendulkar of his childhood days

Published: May 28, 2020, 11:43 IST | IANS | Mumbai

Brian Lara and Sachin Tendulkar are considered two of the finest batsman of their era

West Indies cricket legend Brian Lara shared a video of his son playing cricket with a plastic bat. The West Indies great noted that the way he grips the bat shows that he wants to be a left-handed batsman but the boy is batting right-handed.

"Look at the way he grips the bat, that tells me he wants to be a left-handed batsman," the former West Indies cricketer said in his caption to the video.

Fellow batting great Sachin Tendulkar then replied to Lara, pointing out that he too held the bat in a similar fashion. He posted the famous photo of him as a toddler holding the bat and placed it alongside a clip from the video Lara had posted."@brianlaraofficial I know of another boy who had a similar grip and didn't do too badly in international cricket," Sachin captioned his post on Instagram.
