WATCH: Australia's Glenn Maxwell Mimics Sachin Tendulkar's Shots

Australian cricketer Glen Maxwell has found a new coach, or rather the ideal coach, in Sachin Tendulkar.

In a recent video that has been going viral, the Australian all-rounder is seen practising with the 'Master Blaster' in a coaching session for the Mumbai Indians. Maxwell may be known as 'The Big Show' for his extravagant shots, but he clearly wants to up the ante this season, by learning a few batting tricks from Tendulkar.

In the past, the Aussie all-rounder has proven himself an ardent fan: This April, after Australia was crowned World Champions for the fifth time, Maxwell was giving interviews with various TV channels, when he noticed the 'Little Master' passing by with ICC dignitaries. Leaving his sessions halfway, he immediately ran up to Tendulkar and gave him a hug, proving that sharing a moment with the Indian cricketer tops talking about a World Cup win.
