Us mortals can never understand ‘Godly’ humour. Sachin Tendulkar tweeted the other day that he had missed the last bus out of Great Haseley, Oxfordshire, and needed a lift back home. Millions of followers responded, thinking that their God was in peril. But like always, Sachin’s timing was impeccable and he was one step ahead. The Little Master was merely playing a prank. Forget about hitching a ride, he was taking social media for a ride.

How do we know this? Because this is what he tweeted next:

Now you know how bowlers around the world felt. They were outdone by God. Just like all of us. Some people even went over to pick him up:

Anyone else would’ve pissed us off with such a random prank. But not Sachin Tendulkar. He’s probably tired of hearing this but.. Well played Sachin, well played!
