Iconic India batsman Sachin Tendulkar has recalled the time when he once fielded for Pakistan in a match.
Tendulkar noted that he came on as a substitute fielder for Pakistan when batting great Javed Miandad and legendary spinner Abdul Qadir had to leave the field.
The ‘Little Master’ made the astonishing revelation in his autobiography, Playing It My Way, and hopes that former captain Imran Khan, who is now Pakistan’s Prime Minister, remembers the incident.

“I don’t know whether Imran Khan remembers this or has any idea that I once fielded for his Pakistan team as a substitute fielder when Javed Miandad and Abdul Qadir had to leave the field,” Tendulkar wrote in his autobiography as quoted by Saj Sadiq on Twitter.
India and Pakistan have not played a bilateral series since the latter toured India for two Twenty20 Internationals and three ODIs from December 2012 to January 2013.
Since then, the two arch-rivals have only clashed at major cricket events like the World Cup, T20 World Cup, Champions Trophy and Asia Cup.
