Donald Trump has been trolled by the ICC, after he referred to India cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar as ‘Soochin Tendulkar’. The US President was speaking during the ’Namaste Trump’ rally at the Sardar Patel Stadium, in Gujarat.
Trump was speaking to more than 100,000 people at the world’s largest cricket stadium.
It was the biggest political rally of his career, and did his best to please the crowd by speaking about cricket.
Trump name-checked a couple of India’s players, who he claimed were “the greatest in the world”.
But, he struggled to pronounce the name of Tendulkar, who is largely regarded as one of the best players in the history of the game.

Tendulkar retired from international cricket in 2013.
He scored the most amount of Test match runs in the history of the game, after completing 200 matches in total.
The India star recorded 15,921 runs throughout his international Test career, averaging for more than 53.
He also hit 51 centuries, with a high score of 248, not out.
The ICC couldn’t help but react to Trump’s Indian cricket gaffe.
Cricket’s governing body made reference to his Tendulkar mistake on Twitter.
ICC tweeted on Monday morning: “Sach-, Such-, Satch-, Sutch-, Sooch-… Anyone know?”
The post was accompanied by a short video, appearing to show Tendulkar’s name being changed to ‘Soochin’, in its official database.
