New Delhi: March 22, 2013

Thousands of cricket fans flocked to the Feroz Shah Kotla stadium here Friday to see Indian batting great Sachin Tendulkar play in what could be his last match in the national capital.

Tendulkar, who retired from One-Day Internationals (ODI) in December 2012, has of late been less than a shadow of himself. However, that did not stop his fans from coming to see their hero on the first day of the fourth Test here of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy.

“Whether he is in form or out of form, Sachin is Sachin. Considering that this could be his last match in Delhi I did not want to miss the chance of seeing him play in front of my eyes, one last time,” said Dinesh Singh, who bunked his college to see the 39-year-old maestro.

Pallavi Singh also came to see her favourite cricketer.

“I have never seen Sachin play live. I am not so fond of Test matches but when I got to know that I might not be able to see him play ever again, I did not want to miss the chance,” said Pallavi, who came with her family to see the match.

Though past his prime, the legend still keeps his charm.

Even at the start and during the match, private messages like “Come on Sachin” from fans were being displayed on the giant TV screen inside the ground.
