Gayle cried in Sachin’s farewell match
Former India opener Sachin Tendulkar is one of the best batsmen in the history of world cricket. He played in international cricket for the last time on 15 November 2013, making the fans cry.
Not only his contemporaries but also the cricketers present on the field cried at his farewell. When Sachin was returning, one of the famous cricketers of the opposing team hid his tears behind his sunglasses. He is none other than West Indies star batsman Chris Gayle.
Sachin was out for 76 after giving a catch to Darren Sammy, who stood on the first slip in that match at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
Darren Sammy could not believe that Sachin’s 24-year career ended with his hand. Grief touched them. Fearful batsman Chris Gayle’s eyes got wet at the departure of one of the best batsmen in the history of cricket. He had sunglasses in his eyes, so teary eyes could not be seen on camera. Gayle’s teammate Kirk Edwards reminisced this after a long time.
“For the 200th Test match, I was there. It was very emotional for me as well,” Edwards told CrickTracker in a video chat on Instagram.
“I had my shades on. I was next to Gayle as well. Both of us were sniffing (tearing up). We tried to not let water fall out of our eyes. It was a very touching moment. Knowing that you’re never gonna see this guy in the park again playing cricket.”
