Tendulkar bats for brain development in Kathmandu

Batting legend Sachin Tendulkar paid a three-day visit here to raise awareness for the UNICEF Nepal's 'Bat for Brain Development' campaign.

Tendulkar, who is a UNICEF ambassador, played a fun game of cricket with the Nepal women's team and went to the famous Pashupati Temple and met the Prime Minister of Nepal, KP Sharma Oli, whom he thanked in a social media post.

"Thank you for meeting me despite health issues @PM_Nepal Shri Oli ji, I wish you a speedy recovery. I feel touched by the love and warmth received in Nepal. Like the beautiful lamp you gifted - may there be brightness, happiness & prosperity all over the world. @unicef_nepal," Tendulkar tweeted.   - IANS
