Sachin Tendulkar to be Inducted in 2014 Bradman Honours
Legendary Indian batsman Sachin Tendulkar will join Steve Waugh as the inductees for the 2014 Bradman Honours in Sydney next month. Tendulkar and Waugh will join the likes of Dennis Lillee and Adam Gilchrist as inductees at a gala dinner which will take place on the historic Sydney Cricket Ground on October 29.
“There could be no more principled and deserving individuals in the game than Sachin and Steve,” said Bradman Foundation Executive Director Rina Hore.
Hore also added that “Were Sir Donald to still be alive I’m sure he would unhesitatingly applaud their recognition at the ground where his ambition to play Test cricket was first kindled.”
Tendulkar will be the third Indian and fourth non-Australian to be inducted following Sunil Gavaskar, Rahul Dravid and Sir Richard Hadlee. Both men enjoyed impressive records at the SCG, with Tendulkar scoring three centuries from five Tests at the ground, including an unbeaten innings of 241 in the 2004 New Year’s Test. Waugh, who retired after that match, scored three centuries from 17 Tests at his home ground, including his memorable last-ball century against England in 2003. This can be one more reason for the induction of these legendary cricketers.
Sachin, too had a Wax statue unveiled at the SCG a yer ago.
