Dec 18, 2014 Indian batting legend Sachin Tendulkar asserted that India has come up by leaps and bounds in sports recently, arousing a sense of satisfaction among top sportspersons of the country. Tendulkar, who was in the city for inaugurating a state-of-the-art swimming pool at Rajarhat, was greeted with a garland of 34,000 roses. "India is progressing really well in different sports and that is what gives a sportsman huge satisfaction, be it boxing, wrestling, archery or swimming," he said. He also said he believed there was talent on offer but the right facilities had to be provided. "I am sure there is talent in our nation, just that we need to provide facilities," the 41-year-old former cricketer added. Tendulkar has scored 100 international centuries for India and is the leading run-scorer in Tests and One-Day Internationals (ODI).
