Sachin Tendulkar's final countdown...


Sachin Tendulkar, Master Blaster, God of Cricket!! And So on. The more we talk about Sachin, the less it will be. October 10, 2013 was the date when he announced that the second Test against the West Indies would be his final match. That news broke like fire and soon broke hearts of millions of cricket fans.

Once the news was out, soon it was time to speculate where he will play his final Test Match!! Will it be Kolkata or Mumbai, ie Eden Gardens or Wankhede Stadium. As expected it was finally decided to have the 2nd and final test match at Sachin's Backyard i.e Mumbai.

Sachin's final match

The moment that was decided, there was a huge wave of fans eagerly waiting for the tickets for the final test match. This match, to be played 14-18 November at the Wankhede stadium. And his 199th Test Match will be played from 6-10th November. So what all special things have been planned for the final two matches!! Well, before that, let's look at some amazing facts from Sachin's 24year long career.

  • Sachin made is Test Debut on 15th Nov 1989 against Pakistan. Aged just 16 years and 223 days
  • During the Australian tour of India in 1998 Matthew Hayden said "I have seen God. He bats at no. 4 in India in Tests
  • He has been Man of the Match 13 times in Test matches and Man of the Series four times out of them twice in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy against Australia
  • He also holds the record of highest number of centuries in both Test (51) and ODI (49) cricket.
  • Sir Donald Bradman, considered by many as the greatest batsman of all time, considered Tendulkar to have a batting style similar to his
  • He has taken 200 international wickets - 45 in Tests, 154 in ODIs where he is India's tenth highest wicket taker
  • Tendulkar has opened two restaurants: Tendulkar's[197] (Colaba, Mumbai) and Sachin's[198] (Mulund, Mumbai) and Bangalore
  • He is also the only player to score fifty centuries in Test cricket,[249] and the first to score fifty centuries in all international cricket combined

Well the list is endless, and one can never forget his contribution to Indian and World Cricket. So coming back at the special arrangements for the final 2 test matches. Wankhede stadium has a seating capacity of 32000 and be sure that it will be jam packed on all 5 days. The same goes with Eden Gardens, but with a bigger capacity of 90000. There are plans to distribute Tendulkar masks to all the fans in the stadium in Eden Gardens. While one day he may be greeted by the placards, on another morning the balloons. While in Mumbai, MCA was planning quite a few measures like printing the tickets with Tendulkar's photo on both sides. Did you know that around 50-100
dabbawalas will take a few days off from the tiffin delivery service to be present at Wankhede Stadium and give a salute to the legend.

Awesome Tribute to the Master Blaster.

So get ready to watch "God of Cricket" on the field for the last time. Till then you can Share your Views, Reviews, Comments and Suggestions about  this post on  Twitter-iDubba and set reminders for your favourite shows on iDubba app.
