Google CEO Sundar Pichai meets ‘Idol’ Sachin Tendulkar
Birmingham: It was an absolute fanboy moment for Google CEO Sundar Pichai when he met his ‘idol’ Sachin Tendulkar here. The tech giant and sporting legend met on Sunday when India was playing England at Edgbaston in the ongoing 2019 Cricket World.
India might have lost unceremoniously to England, but the highlight of the match was watching India’s two favourite sons in one frame.
The BCCI posted an image of Sundar posing with master blaster Tendulkar on its social media pages.
An avid cricket fan himself, Pichai had earlier said at an event organised by US-India Business Council that he is backing India and England to reach the final of the World Cup. He has also admitted of dreaming of being a cricketer during his growing up years and idolised Sunil Gavaskar and later Tendulkar.
The Twitterati went overboard with several appreciation posts for tech giant Sundar Pichai and cricketing legend Sachin Tendulkar. Let’s have a look at a few tweets.
