Sachin Tendulkar’s Kit Up challenge is truly reaching places. So far many sports personalities including Virat Kohli have picked up the challenge already. The Kit Up Challenge was introduced by the Master Blaster for encouraging the youth to pick up a sport and stay fit. Now, the latest to join the bandwagon is the Australian pacer Brett Lee.
Brett Lee shared the video of himself putting on the pads and then nominated Shane Watson to perform the act. The video was shared with the caption, “@Sachintendulkar, i’m all set to accept your Fitness kit-up Challenge, I'm kitting up to play the sport I love. I nominate @srwatson33 to kit up and share a video too. #100MB #KitUpChallenge #heisanopeningbatsmen #scared #goodluck.”
A few days ago, Sachin shared a video on social media where he spoke about the challenge. The tweet read, “I'm kitting up to go play the sport I love. Share a video of you playing the sport you love. I nominate, @SandeshJhingan, @imsardarsingh8, @imVkohli, @M_Raj03, @srikidambi, @Pvsindhu1, @yesmrinmoy & @NavaniRajan. @PMOIndia #HumFitTohIndiaFit #KitUpChallenge #SportPLAYINGIndia" (sic).”
The Master Blaster also nominated footballer Sandesh Jhingan, Hockey player Sardara Singh, cricketers Virat Kohli and Mithali Raj, along with badminton players Srikanth Kidambi and P. V. Sindhu to perform the act. Virat a few days ago accepted the challenge and shared the video of the act on social media.
The video was captioned, “@Sachintendulkar paaji, thanks for nominating me for the Fitness kit-up Challenge, I'm kitting up to play the sport I love. I nominate @parthiv9 to kit up and share videos of the same. #ComeOutAndPlay #KitUpChallenge #SportPlayingIndia #HumFitTohIndiaFit.” The Indian cricket captain nominated Parthiv Patel for the Kit Up Challenge.
