Orissa Cricket Association (OCA) will name its newly-constructed indoor hall after Sachin Tendulkar who became the only player in the history of the sport to score 100 international centuries.

“We take the opportunity to celebrate the epoch-making occasion by dedicating the OCA Indoor Cricket Hall to his name,” OCA secretary Asirbad Behera said.

“The Sachin Tenulkar Indoor Hall will be inaugurated on the occasion of the Utkal Divas (April 1). This is our modest homage to the great cricketer,” he said of Tendulkar who is also the leading run-getter at the Barabati Stadium.

“This prodigious achievement of Sachin Tendulkar will become a cricketing lore which will perhaps never be equalled in the history of world cricket. Sachin has made India proud,” he said.
