Beckham and Tendulkar acknowledged the wonderful response they received from the nearly sold-out crowd at the Wankhede stadium, which was filled with cheers and clapping for these sporting superstars as they wandered around the lively venue. Before the pivotal semi-final, the two spoke with players from both teams, with Kohli joining in on the conversation.

The fact that legendary figures from football and cricket will be competing against one another in this high-stakes event exemplifies the global appeal of sports in general and the comradery that exists between athletes from other sports.
