Sachin Tendulkar's 'Kit up challenge' - InsideSport

PV Sindhu has taken the lead in accepting Sachin Tendulkar’s “Kit Up Challenge”. India’s badminton icon was among the first one to post her video after the cricket legend has invoked support for his “Kit Up Challenge” for a fit and healthy life.

Sindhu was the first to except Sachin’s challenge and has posted a video today a few moments ago. She has further nominated Star Indian pugilist MC Mary Kom, Wrestler Sushil Kumar, and Tamil cinema actor/producer Suriya Sivakumar.

Sachin Tendulkar on Thursday came up with a new ‘Kit Up Challenge’, urging people to go out, play and share a video of the same on social media.

The 45-year-old cricket legend highlighted the importance of playing a sport to stay fit and healthy in a video that he shared on his Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts. Tendulkar has urged everyone to “kit up for whatever sports you like and go outdoors to play”.

The Master Blaster calls it an extension to “Hum Fit Toh India Fit” challenge, a brainchild of the Union Sports Minister and I&B Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore. The challenge has gained massive traction on social media platforms from the celebrities, sportstars, politicians and the general public alike.

Sachin went on to nominate a number of Indian icons, including Indian men’s cricket team skipper Virat Kohli, Indian football and Kerala Blasters star Sandesh Jhinghan, Indian woman cricketer Mithali Raj, elite boxer Vijender Singh, hockey star Sardar Singh and badminton stalwart Kidambi Srikanth for the challenge along with Sindhu.

“I have enjoyed playing all kinds of sports since childhood especially cricket. The fit India challenge is on. This is just an extension of that. Whatever sport you like to play, just go, kit up and enjoy playing. Stay healthy and fit, but above all have loads of fun,” he said in a video.

“I’m kitting up to go play the sport I love. Share a video of you playing the sport you love,” the master blaster captioned the video on Twitter.
