Riding on Virat Kohli’s another glowing performance of 89 runs from 47 balls, India set West Indies a target of 192. Mumbaikars turned out in huge numbers at Wankhede Stadium and if the thunderous knock of Kohli wasn’t enough to get them to cheer and applaud, it was the presence of one of their own – Sachin Tendulkar – that brought everyone to raise the sound level. When the maestro’s face was seen on the large screen, the crowd began cheering, “Sachin! Sachin! Sachin! Sachin!”. Something that this crowd has done numerous times in their lifetime.

Sachin Tendulkar along with his daughter Sara, Mukesh Ambani accompanied by wife Nita Ambani and Anil Kapoor were also spotted together supporting team India in their semi-final match against West Indies.
This isn’t the first time Tendulkar has been in the stand this World T20. He also was present during India’s win over Pakistan in the group stages where Kohli dedicated his knock to the Master Blaster.
