Sachin Tendulkar Requests Fans to Remain Vigilant About Misleading Images on Social Media
Tendulkar cautioned his fans to remain vigilant about misleading images on social media.
Mumbai: Apart from being the all-time leading run-scorer, Sachin Tendulkar is easily one of the most respected cricketers to have graced the game. In India, he is considered a demi-god – not just for his cricketing achievements, but also for the spotless career he has had. On Thursday, after a few misleading images of the legendary cricketer endorsing a casino went viral, Tendulkar himself took to Twitter to provide clarity to fans.
Tendulkar cautioned his fans to remain vigilant about misleading images on social media. His post read: “Requesting everyone to remain vigilant about misleading images on social media.”

His post also had a note which read: “It has come to my notice that there are multiple ads being shown on social media platforms, with a morphed photo showing me endorsing a casino. I have never endorsed gambling, alcohol, or tobacco – directly or indirectly, in an individual capacity. It pains me to see that my image is being used to influence people. While my legal team would be taking the required action, I felt it was important for me to share this information with everyone.”
Today was also the day Tendulkar created history by becoming the first cricketer ever to score a double hundred in ODI cricket. He did it in 2010 in Gwalior against South Africa. He remained unbeaten on 200* off 147 balls and that knock helped India beat South Africa by 153 runs.
