Mumbai: Mar 19, 2012

Lauding Sachin Tendulkar for his phenomenal feat of scoring 100 international centuries, BCCI vice-president Rajiv Shukla on Monday said the cricket icon should be honoured with the country’s highest civilian award.

“There is a lot more cricket left in him. He should get the highest civilian award,” Shukla told reporters at Vidhan Bhawan, after filing papers for the March 30 Rajya Sabha poll as a Congress candidate.

“Sachin will score even more centuries,” Shukla said. (PTI)
