Protestors Gather Outside Sachin Tendulkar’s Residence: Former Indian batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar is once again embroiled in controversy, as protests erupted near his Bandra residence on Thursday (31 August). Protests were organised by the party members of an independent MLA named Bachchu Kadu in response to Tendulkar’s previous association with an online cricket gaming company.
Soon, all demonstrators under Bachchu Kadu’s direction were brought to the Banda Police Station. A demonstration occurred just two days after the former State Minister in the Maharashtra government.

“Recipients of the Bharat Ratna must adhere to a code of conduct. On August 30, 2023, a notification will be sent to Sachin Tendulkar. We granted him time until the 30th. Regarding this, he has not yet clarified any of his positions. Therefore, we will issue him a notice through an attorney.”
It is important to note that similar protests subsequently began outside the home of Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan.
Sachin Tendulkar retired from international cricket as the all-time ODI and T20I run scorer:
In the meantime, Sachin Tendulkar’s excellence in the game cannot be disputed, as he has scored 34,357 runs in 6 international matches. The right-handed batsman has scored 15921 runs in Tests and 18426 runs in ODIs. Additionally, the Mumbai-born cricketer became the first batsman to achieve a century in ODIs.
Tendulkar’s first World Cup victory occurred in 2011, when the Men in Blue defeated Sri Lanka by six wickets at the Wankhede Stadium. Although the right-handed batsman failed to make a significant score in the final, he was India’s leading run-scorer in the tournament, scoring 482 runs in 9 innings at a rate of 53.55.
