Never before has there been a more urgent need for a collective effort to save the planet. So, on World Environment Day, Sachin Tendulkar led the cricket fraternity in sending out a clarion call to their followers and fans across the globe to help protect the environment. Their message was absolutely clear – it’s time to restore and heal the planet, together. Most of the Indian Premier League (IPL) teams, too, shared messages on social media and urged everyone to do their bit to save the planet threatened by the climate crisis.

Sachin Tendulkar shared a video on Twitter that showed him watering seeds in a field.

It also showed him walking through the field when the seeds grew into crops.

“I am so happy to see them grow. Unbelievable, so satisfying. What a feeling,” the batting great said.

“Nature. An ‘evergreen’ technology, to keep us healthy and happy,” he captioned the video.

On their official Instagram account, Mumbai Indians (MI) shared some tips on how all of us can take steps to protect the environment. MI captain Rohit Sharma, players Hardik Pandya, Jasprit Bumrah, and others called for saving water, recycling waste, growing more plants, and saving electricity.
Sharing an image of Earth as a huge, green playground, Delhi Capitals urged everyone to be more cautious in their everyday actions and do their bit for the environment as it’s “the only place we can play and watch cricket”.
