On July 10, the former Indian captain, who was in England to watch Wimbledon tennis championship, had tweeted a picture of himself at a bus stop.
He had written, "In Great Haseley Oxfordshire. Missed the last bus, can anyone give me a lift??."
Many fans who were surprised to see this tweet, started replying instantly to Tendulkar. There were responses in which many offered him a ride back to his destination and some rued that chance to meet the legendary cricketer.
There were no further updates on that tweet till yesterday (July 13). However, on Monday evening, he posted the same picture of him waiting at the bus stop and wrote on it, "Not the bus, but some seem to have missed the joke."
It was prankster Tendulkar who bowled over his 7.15 million Twitter followers.
