British actor Benedict Cumberbatch has recently stated that Indian sports icon Sachin Tendulkar would fit the role as superhero Doctor Strange quite well.

The actor, who is seen as the superhero, spoke about it when he met former Australian cricket sensation Brett Lee during the Avengers: Infinity War press tour in Singapore.

When quizzed on cricket, Cumberbatch said, “Graham Gooch was my hero when growing up. I loved playing cricket and because I was a wicketkeeper, I had my eye on Jack Russell.”

Lee asked Cumberbatch for his views on who would best fit the role of Doctor Strange. He said, “Sachin Tendulkar would do quite well in fitting the role as Doctor Strange as he is quite extraordinary.”

Interestingly, Sachin’s docudrama Sachin: A Billion Dreams released last year and was received well, commercially and critically.

It would be quite cool to see the master blaster test out his acting skills.

Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War is set to release in the UK on April 26, whilst the movie will release in India on 27th April.
