During an SA20 League match between the Pretoria Capitals and Joburg Super Kings, a striker was dismissed at the striker’s end after the ball hit the bowler’s leg after the striker hit a shot off the pitch. Former India batsman Aakash Chopra, who commentated on the match alongside ex-pacer RP Singh, shared his thoughts on the incident. However, RP Singh recalled an incident when he made Sachin Tendulkar run out in the same manner.
He added that he had apologized to Tendulkar right after the incident, but Chopra poked fun at the former pacemaker and asked him to say sorry to the batter again.
“I’ve never been able to run anyone out after the ball hit part of my body while bowling, but then one time I hit a straight drive while batting and the player at the end of the non-striker was exhausted because of it,” said Singh. replied.
Again sorry, @sachin_rt paji https://t.co/HIslvQciKf

Chopra later retweeted the video of the incident and apologized to Tendulkar, who then responded with a hilarious comment.
Also remembering the incident, he replied that the straight drive, a shot he had mastered throughout his playing career, was once not his favorite shot.
“For once the straight drive was not my favorite shot! @cricketaakash. @rpsingh bhaiyya toh batting karte samay bhi wicket lete the! (RP Singh always took wickets even while batting!)” Tendulkar responded to Chopra’s tweet .
