The edtech platform, Unacademy has enabled all aspiring young cricketers to learn from Sachin Tendulkar, the icon himself. The master blaster will teach the fundamentals of the game in his first-ever cricket course.

Our 1st Iconic Course is with the legendary @sachin_rt where he will teach the fundamentals of the game in his first-ever Cricket Course.” The video also includes the 48-year-old.
In the video, Sachin Tendulkar can be seen on the field with the crowd cheering for him; in the background, a voice can be heard encouraging his cricket shots such as cover drive and straight drive. Tendulkar also speaks to the audience, saying, “It’s time to bring all of my learnings to you, join me as I take you through the game of Cricket in my new series, Cricket with Sachin only on Unacademy, this time it’s me, Sachin Tendulkar, cheering for you, let’s crack the game.”
