Number 10 previously worn by the batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar himself and many thought the jersey number should never be used again. However, he was forced to change the jersey number from 10 to 54.

Although his internationl stint didn’t stay long and he is out of form currently. However, he is a key player of the Mumbai team in the domestic circuit. While Shardul Thakur wants to forget the memory of having worn the no.10 Jersey, his Mumbai teammate bought the controversy back again in a most hilarious way on his social media.
