From the video, it is clearly visible how much fun the trio had while playing the sport with each other.
For Abhishek, it was his dream to play with the Master Blaster Sachin.
He commented: "Been trying to control my excitement since yesterday.... A dream come true! Thank you for not smacking my ball out of the park."
Like Abhishek, Varun could not resist his excitement and shared his fan moment with Sachin on social media.
"#SportPlayingNation, what a brilliant initiative this is sir. Had a lot of fun running into you that day sir," Varun tweeted.
Not only this, Sachin and Varun made a video in which they discussed about the importance of fitness and lauded PM Narendra Modi for launching 'Fit India Movement'.
Our Hon. PM Shri @narendramodi's #FitIndiaMovement launched today resonates with my dream of transforming 🇮🇳 into a #SportPlayingNation.— Sachin Tendulkar (@sachin_rt) August 29, 2019
