A mobile phone app dedicated to Sachin Tendulkar, ‘100 MB’ was launched in Mumbai. The cricketer started his digital innings, as the app dedicated to him was launched on Friday.
The app is conceptualised and developed by JetSynthesys and has been envisioned by Sachin himself.
A song sung by Sachin with the ace singer Sonu Nigam will feature on the app on Sunday at 10 PM.
Speaking on the occasion, Sachin said, “Many of you and my friends have asked me what are you going to do in your second innings of life. The first innings went on for 24 years. There are number of things which I am involved in, but something which I am looking forward to starting soon, in fact now, is the digital innings.
“It will allow me to get closer to my fans. My journey started as a 10-year-old who saw India win the World Cup in 1983, so in my song, what I have tried to do is thank all those cricketers who have helped me realise my dream, six World Cups that I have been,” he added.
“I was fond of music, but never thought I will sing a song,” he said.
Among other things, all social media updates of Sachin will be available through the app.
