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

Look at the way he grips the bat, that tells me he wants to be a lefthanded batsman. Mummy is giving him some good advice. Look at the attitude when told to switch hands. ðð "Both hands on the bat" ð NO Action time swings right misses swings left and makes contact #donedeal #leftiebatsman "Don't you want to play like daddy" NO! ð #betterthan That's my boy!
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.
Lara reacted to the post saying: "I can see that @sachintendulkar and some of the best bowlers in the world felt that sword! Well I am not interfering then lol. Thanks for the advice. #rightvsleft #legend #mostruns #recordsmen."
Tendulkar then said that the boy has a bright future considering he is going to learn from the "one of the greatest batsmen in the world."
