India's cricketing great Sachin Tendulkar enjoyed a game of gully cricket with Bollywood superstar Varun Dhawan during a shoot.

 

As expected Tendulkar started off with the bat against Varun's medium pace, smashing him all around the park in the tennis ball game.

He also then tried a few leg-spinners and did manage to beat Varun, who just could not contain his excitement playing against the Indian batting legend.

"It’s always good to mix work with play. Had a lot of fun playing cricket with the crew during a shoot & was pleasantly surprised with @varundvn dropping by along with @bachchan who joined us for some time," Tendulkar posted on Instagram along with a video of them playing cricket on the sets.

Varun, a big Tendulkar fan, was all praise for the Mumbai batting icon.

"Kya lag raha ho sir @sachintendulkar.  Sachin sir I have always felt very close to you like how entire india feels you are ours but also because 24 th April is a date I still have to do a lot of work to live up to," he tweeted.

Also joining them was Abhishek Bachchan, who termed it as a 'dream come true' moment of getting a chance to play with Tendulkar.

"Been trying to control my excitement since yesterday.... A dream come true! Thank you for not smacking my ball out of the park."
