Even Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar was in absolute praise for Sanju Samson after his solid goal-keeper-like leap to dismiss Pat Cummins went viral at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.

Shocked and surprised over Samson's brilliant catch, Tendulkar took to social media and recalled the bitter-sweet memories of taking a similar catch against the West Indies in the 1992 World Cup. 

"Brilliant catch by @IamSanjuSamson! I know how much it hurts when you bang your head like this on the ground. I experienced it in the 1992 World Cup in our match against the WI when I took a catch," Tendulkar said in a tweet.
