Tendulkar in Sri Lanka



Indian cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar on Monday visited two schools in Sri Lanka and interacted with students in his role as UNICEF’s Goodwill Ambassador.

Tendulkar was appointed UNICEF Ambassador for South Asia in 2013 to advocate good hygiene and sanitation across the region.

He toured the southwestern Sabaragamuwa province’s Kegalle district on Monday, visiting selected schools.

Tendulkar, 50, visited two schools where he interacted with primary school students and senior students and also participated in a game of cricket with teams consisting of male and female students, PTI reported.

In a statement, provincial Governor Navin Dissanayake said he had an interesting interaction when the iconic cricketer visited a preschool in the province.

“Appreciate his time and great humanity in undertaking this cause on behalf of the Sabaragamuva province,” Dissanayake posted on Twitter.
