The ‘little master’ tweeted the photo and has been tracking Hughes’s progress for the last few days . Just like the rest of the world, he expressed shock at Hughes’s death.

The 42 year-old’s old MRF bat evokes old memories too. The year was 1998 and it is pointed out by many cricket connoisseurs that it was his best year in his career. Tendulkar was batting like a dream throughout the year and Shane Warne in particular, took a major beating from the blade. The scintillating 155 at Chennai, the ‘desert storm’ knock and the hundred in the final following that, the fluent 141 in the inaugural ICC knockout tournament, all came in the calender year and Tendulkar should be lauded for this touching gesture.
