Gudi Padwa is one of the significant festivals in Maharashtrian households and is observed as the New Year. Sachin Tendulkar wished all his fans ‘Gudi Padwa Hardik Shubhechha’ and also mentioned about the great beginning of the month Chaitra, New Year as Team India beat Australia to lift the Border-Gavaskar trophy by winning the four-match Test series 2-1. Earlier, Sachin has posted a collage of pictures from the fourth Test where India out rooted Australia by 8 wickets.

Tendulkar tweeted “Indiaaa Indiaaa 👏👏👏 Indiaaa Indiaaa!!!! #IndVAus.” Yes, on the same lines as fans cheered him ‘Sachiiin Sachiiin’ every time he took the field during his playing days. Sachin had been incredibly in support of the current Team India, and one could see his strong faith for the side when Virat’s men lost the opening Test to Aussies by 333 runs in Pune. Well, Master Blaster did not lose hope, and it did pay off well in the end.
