Dressed in Santa Claus attire, Sachin Tendulkar shared a short three-second video, in which he is seen wishing everyone a ‘Merry Christmas’ along with his endearing smile. Along with the video, Tendulkar posted a message which read:
"Merry Christmas everyone! Christmas has always been about togetherness and giving. Let's make it special for the people around us, even in the smallest of ways. Have a blessed one."
Like Sachin Tendulkar, other present and former cricketers also took to Twitter to share Christmas greetings.

Will it be a Merry Christmas for Team India?
A day after Christmas, India face Australia in the Boxing Day Test at the MCG. While Boxing Day is traditionally the day boxes of Christmas gifts are opened, India cannot expect any festive bonuses from the Aussies.
Down 0-1 in the series, having been badgered at Adelaide, they will have to be on top of their game to deliver an outstanding performance if they wish to make Christmas merrier for the Indian fans back home!Published 25 Dec 2020, 19:20 IST
