Sachin Tendulkar offers prayers at Tirupati temple
Saturday 02 February 2013

Star batsman Sachin Tendulkar today sought divine intervention at the famous hill shrine of Lord Venkateswara near Tirupati in Andhra Pradesh. He offered prayers in the traditional manner, wearing a dhoti and a white shirt.

Tendulkar also participated in the ritual 'Suprabhatha recitation seva'. The temple management presented the ace cricketer with a sacred silk cloth, prasad and holy water, while the priests chanted hymns to bless him in his future innings.

In December, iconic batsman Sachin Tendulkar quit the one-day format of the sport to make way for youngsters to prepare for the 2015 World Cup.

Tendulkar possesses bundles of batting records in international cricket and achieved his long-cherished dream of being part of a World Cup-winning team in 201, when India claimed the 50-over tournament in his home city Mumbai.
