A postage stamp honouring Sachin Tendulkar was released before the start of the maestro’s 200th Test match at the Wankhede Stadium.

Milind Deora, Sharad Pawar and Rajeev Shukla released the stamp honouring Tendulkar ahead of the start of second Test between India and West Indies. Even for the toss, the captains used a special commemorative coin featuring the image of the legendary batsman.

Deora tweeted that Tendulkar is the second living person after Mother Teressa to get a postage stamp in his honour.

Tendulkar announced his retirement on October 10, 2013. And ever since then it has been a frenzy with media attention and felicitations.
