You can take a man out of a sport, but not a sport out of a man.

A video of Sachin Tendulkar playing cricket on a Mumbai street yesterday evokes that emotion.

The video shows him, wearing white shirt and black trouser, emerging from a car and approaching the youngsters already playing cricket.

The stunned youngsters handed him the bat and his magic began.

The video, recorded by his childhood buddy Vinod Kambli, shows 44-year-old Sachin playing near a construction site in Bandra.

He could just play five balls, before crowd started gathering.

He obliged his fans by clicking selfies with them and took a moment to think of a reply when someone requested him to visit his restaurant located nearby.

"I could see childhood's Sachin," said Kambli.

"Once a cricketer always a cricketer," Kambli rightly points out

"They would have got a shock as 'God' came in front of them. These people normally see us in the stadium. It is their luck to see Sachin from close. I and he have the same feeling: once a cricketer always a cricketer," said Kambli.
