I batted left-handed in nets just for fun: Sachin

All eyes at the Indian team's net session here yesterday were on Sachin Tendulkar. And those eyes almost popped out when the maestro decided to swing the bat... left-handed at the Chinnaswamy Stadium.

As the local bowlers ran in and delivered ball after ball, Tendulkar whacked them all over the park. Three of those deliveries sailed over the rope, much to the amusement and astonishment of his teammates.

True, the bowlers might not have been at their fiery best as Tendulkar was without any protective gear, but there was no doubting the smoothness and style of his shots. What that brief stint also did, was dispel all concern over his fitness. But, from cricketing point of view, was the world's best batsman trying to add new weapons to his armoury?

"It was nothing serious. I played left-handed today just for fun and nothing else. I just tried to enjoy the net session," Tendulkar told MiD DAY after nets.
