Wankhede Stadium has been a special ground for batting legend Sachin Tendulkar. It’s not just his home ground; it’s where he spent the best moment of his life when India lifted the 2011 Cricket World Cup. It also happens to be the ground where he played his last international game.
As reported by MiD-Day, Tendukar, on Friday relived the World Cup winning moment at the Wankhede Stadium — for a television show that he and Sourav Ganguly will participate in before and during the World Cup starting next month.
The stadium was decorated with India flags and promotional items of the channel. The presenter quizzed both, Tendulkar and Ganguly about their various World Cups memories. Tendulkar, who happens to be the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup brand ambassador, changed his attire thrice.
He was seen in his iconic number 10 jersey and blue jeans. Also, at the other end of the pavilion was his former team-mate Harbhajan Singh, who too was a part of the World Cup triumph in 2011.
There were more than 100 young cricketers from various clubs in the city and Tendulkar, who was then seen in a green shirt, came out as the young cricketers chanted, ‘Sachin Sachin’.
In the third segment of the shoot, the batting maestro was seen in a black shirt and the presenter went ahead to introduce him as the God of cricket.
