He shared a video of SRH all-rounder Vijay Shankar getting hit on the head when Nicholas Pooran threw the ball towards the striker’s end, attempting to run out the batsman. Tendulkar tweeted – “The game has become faster but is it getting safer? Recently we witnessed an incident which could’ve been nasty.
