What got Sachin Tendulkar into the 50 most influential people on Twitter list

Sachin Tendulkar has been very actively pursuing a number of social causes since his retirement. The ranking highlighted his "appreciable real work for the less fortunate, lending his voice and presence for the right causes, his inspired fans following his work and his partner brands' relevant impactful campaigns."

Among the top social causes that Sachin Tendulkar has been espousing is his role with the UNICEF in which he shoulders the responsibility of being the ambassador for South Asia. He has been in that role since in 2013.

Sachin Tendulkar's other social causes are in health, education, and sports.

Sachin has a massive following in India and the cricket-playing world not just for his batting abilities but also for his humble and ever-helpful nature. His batting prowess can be gauged from the fact that he has an average of 53.79 in Test cricket, 44.83 in one-day internationals and 33.83 in Indian Premier League (IPL). Sachin played his last Test match in 2013 and that was against the West Indies. It was played in Mumbai's Wankhede Stadium.
