Donald Trump Spectacularly Fails To Get Sachin Tendulkar's Name Right

Donald Trump Spectacularly Fails To Get Sachin Tendulkar's Name Right

Donald Trump proved he was no cricket fan by failing to pronounce the legendary Sachin Tendulkar's name correctly, although the crowd in India still cheered for their hero.

The President of America is currently in Asia visiting India for the first time, on a 36 hour trip, and addressed a massive crowd of people at the Motera cricket stadium, which is yet to officially open.

During the address the POTUS spoke about Indian cricket heroes Tendulkar and current captain Virat Kohli but managed to get both names totally wrong, although the fans still cheered their very half mention.

Based on the amount of people trying to leave the stadium the pronunciation didn't go down all too well:

It's not actually the first time that Trump has been connected with the world of cricket. The former US Apprentice star once followed Australian cricketer Damien Martyn.

The president only follows 47 people on the social media network and one of them was briefly the former batsman, although no one knows why.

It's no wonder that it was Tendulkar and Kohli's names that Trump got wrong, he's a much bigger fan of Rahul 'the Wall' Dravid.
