Sachin and a BBL offer

New Delhi: Sachin Tendulkar, if a report in an Australian daily is to be believed, was approached by Big Bash League (BBL) franchise Sydney Thunder to feature in this year’s edition of the T20 tournament, but eventually the deal could not be reached.

According to a report in the Sydney Morning Herald, Sachin was offered an “attractive” package by the Thunder, who are desperately looking for a turnaround in their fortunes, having won just one game out of their last 19 matches, stretching 25 months.

But talks with the icon, who retired from all forms of the game in November last year, fell apart when Harry Harinath resigned as head of Cricket NSW early last year.
