International Women’s Day: Sachin Tendulkar Highlights the Rise of Women in Sports

On International Women’s Day, legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar took to social media to celebrate the remarkable achievements of women in sports. He emphasized the significant progress made by women in the field, both in India and globally.

Tendulkar recalled an emotional moment in 2008, after the 26/11 Mumbai attacks, when India defeated England in a cricket match. He shared that one of the first people he embraced was a female ground staff member, highlighting the important role women play in the sport.

He also acknowledged the groundbreaking achievement of Jacintha Kalyan, who became India’s first female pitch curator in 2024. Tendulkar expressed his hope that Kalyan’s success would inspire many more women to pursue careers in sports.

“This #InternationalWomensDay, let us encourage and applaud these role models who continue to break barriers and set examples in all fields,” Tendulkar wrote.

Tendulkar’s message aligns with the United Nations’ call to “Invest in Women: Accelerate Progress.” By supporting women in sports and other areas, we can create a more equitable and inclusive society.
