“Well, it’s a pleasant surprise. The president is here, and Mr Kale and the other committee members are going to join us in a while. We’ve come here to identify a spot. 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,”
Tendulkar to ANI.
“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. 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 also at this very ground so it’s very special and a great moment for me.”
Wankhede a special place for Sachin Tendulkar
The Wankhede Stadium is a special place for Sachin Tendulkar fans. In 2011, Sachin won his first ODI World Cup trophy there. It was a big moment for him and for all his fans. Sachin’s performance was incredible, and it made the day unforgettable for cricket lovers around the world.
