Tendulkar had shared a video of a specially-abled kid Maddaram where the youngster could be seen showcasing his unrelenting love and passion for the game, on New Year day, where he hailed the kids passion as an inspiration.
And, now the Master Blaster has gone ahead and gifted the specially-abled youngster a cricket kit. According to a report in a news daily, Tendulkar’s manager went to deliver the special gift to Maddaram, who at the time was en-route to Raipur where he was scheduled to play the finals of a wheelchair tournament.
