Mumbai Cricket Association on Monday honoured the iconic Indian batsman ahead of his 200th and final Test by naming its Kandivili Ground after him in the presence of host political bigwigs.

“I appreciate not just this evening but the last 24 years,” said a beaming Tendulkar when he took the stage amid loud cheering and applause by the attendees, including his teammates and visiting West Indian team.

“It felt special to read my name on the entry of the (MCA) club. It feels good as I am not used to it. I didn’t expect this. It was a humble experience. I thank MCA for this kind gesture,” he said, referring to the renamed Sachin Tendulkar Gymkhana Club.

Tendulkar used the occasion to express his gratitude towards MCA for making its facilities available to him whenever he asked for it. “I want to thank the MCA for making the nets available for me at any time I wanted. I just needed to make a phone call to get it,” he said.

“I had the right pitches, the right wickets to prepare myself. To play for India has been truly memorable, I think every step was different and every tour required different preparations,” he said.
