Cricket icon Sachin Tendulkar started his digital innings following the launch of a mobile phone app, aptly titled ‘100 MB’ in Mumbai on Thursday.

The app, envisioned by Sachin and dedicated to himself, is conceptualised and developed by JetSynthesys.

Sachin has hummed a duet with singer Sonu Nigam and the song will feature on the app on Sunday at 10 PM.

Speaking on the occasion, Sachin said, "Many of you and my friends have asked me what are you going to do in your second innings of life? The first innings went on for 24 years. There are number of things which I am involved in, but something which I am looking forward to starting soon, in fact now, is the digital innings.

"It will allow me to get closer to my fans. My journey started as a 10-year-old who saw India win the World Cup in 1983, so in my song, what I have tried to do is thank all those cricketers who have helped me realise my dream, six World Cups that I have been," he added.

"I was fond of music, but never thought I will sing a song," he said.

Among other things, all social media updates of Sachin will be available through the app.
