Meanwhile, Sachin Tendulkar gave a priceless reaction after being commemorated with a life-size statue. “Well it’s a pleasant surprise. The president is here, Mr. Kale and the other committee members are going to join us in a while. We’ve come here to identify a spot,” he said.
“The idea was shared with me, and as I said it is a pleasant surprise. My career had started here and this is like the completion of a big circle.
“It’s been a journey with unbelievable memories and the best moment of my cricketing career came here when we won the World Cup in 2011,” Tendulkar told ANI.
“The reason that happened was a long time ago when [Ramakant] Achrekar sir (Sachin’s coach) reprimanded me and from there on, I became a serious cricketer. The last international game I played as also at this very ground so it’s very special and a great moment for me,” Sachin added.
