Angry cricket fans on Friday (November 28) criticised a national daily for making a blunder in one of its sports pages where "RIP Sachin Tendulkar" was printed.

"The Times of India" published cricketers' tributes to Australian opener Phil Hughes, who died on Thursday (November 27) after being struck by a short-pitched ball during a Shefffield Shield match on Tuesday (November 25). (Cricketers who died due to on-field injuries)

Print blunder:

In a selection of tweets on Hughes, published in today's edition, batting legend Sachin Tendulkar's was also included. But instead of the former India captain's actual words "RIP #PhilHughes", the newspaper put out "RIP Sachin Tendulkar".

"Shocked to hear about Phil. Sad day for cricket. Deepest condolences to family, friends and well wishers. RIP #PhilipHughes," wrote Tendulkar on his Twitter page on Thursday. (From Twitter - Cricket world mourns)

However, "The Times of India" made an error, which read, "Shocked to hear about Phil. Sad day for cricket. Deepest condolences to family, friends and well wishers. RIP Sachin Tendulkar," with "Sachin Tendulkar, Cricket Great" under it. (Tragic end of Raman Lamba)

Some of the fans who noticed this blunder, took to Twitter to slam the paper. One of them wrote "Biggest blunder of the century." (Doctors explain cause of Hughes death)
