LEGENDARY Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar shared his experiences and insights with a group of 30 young cricketers during a special coaching session at the Singapore Cricket Club on Tuesday morning.

In Singapore at the invitation of The Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS), the 41-year-old, considered one of the finest batsmen the world has seen and who retired from international cricket last year, imparted tips to the boys and a girl on the intricacies of batting and the sport in general.

Later, he addressed the media, during which he spoke about his life after retirement and excitement about captaining the Marlyebone Cricket Club against the Rest of the World at the Lord's Bicentenary match in London on July 5.

Tendulkar also participated in a charity initiative, driven by RBS staff in Singapore, with the proceeds going to the Dyslexia Association of Singapore.

"I love Singapore and have always enjoyed the warmth and hospitality of the people," he said. "Through my association with The Royal Bank of Scotland, I was able to spend some time with some budding cricketers who have tremendous potential. I would like to thank the Singapore Cricket Club for hosting this interactive session and encouraging the sport of cricket. I commend the charity efforts undertaken by The Royal Bank of Scotland and am happy to have played a small role in their initiative to support the Dyslexia Association of Singapore."
