Sachin Tendulkar carries drinks: The Master Blaster was seen serving drinks in a charity match for a noble cause in 2005.
During the one-off Tsunami relief match between ICC World XI and Asia XI in 2005 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar was seen carrying drinks for the Asia XI team after World XI captain Ricky Ponting was dismissed.
It is worth mentioning that the charity match was played on the back of the infamous Tsunami which arrived on the Boxing Day of 2004 in Sri Lanka.
While Ponting led the World XI team, former India captain Sourav Ganguly was given the reigns of the Asia XI team which also comprised of other Indian cricketers such as Virender Sehwag, Rahul Dravid, Zaheer Khan and Anil Kumble.
After winning the toss and electing to bat, Ponting led from the front as he scored his 16th ODI century to propel the team total to 344/8 in 50 overs. Coming in to bat at No. 3 in the second over, Ponting ended up scoring a match-winning 115 (102) with the help of eight fours and three sixes.
Chasing a 345-run target, Asia XI were bundled out for 232 in 39.5 overs. Having scored 75* (71) with the help of five fours, Dravid was the highest run-scorer for Asia XI. With bowling figures of 10-0-58-3, Daniel Vettori was the pick of the bowlers for World XI in the second innings.

While the likes of Chris Lynn, Glenn Maxwell and Fawad Ahmed had announced to donate money with respect to every six that they hit in the Big Bash, legendary spinner Shane Warne recently auctioned his baggy green for a huge sum of more than one million dollars for the same cause.
