The West Bengal Sports department is all set to felicitate Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar for his achievement of 100 centuries, here in Kolkata.
The felicitation ceremony would take place in the eve of the match between Mumbai Indians and Kolkata Knight Riders on 12th May.
Sachin Tendulkar has been informed by state sports Minister Madan Mitra. Mitra told agencies that Tendulkar has accepted the invitation. Sachin Tendulkar has replied through an email that he too is looking forward to the event.
“It will be a great occasion and we plan to felicitate in a befitting way for his 100th international centuries milestone,” Mitra said.
“I’m looking forward to the occasion. I will be honoured to be felicitated at the iconic Eden Gardens by the chief minister (Mamata Banerjee),” Mitra quoted Sachin as stating in an e-mail.
Mitra is in consultation with the Jagmohan Dalmiya to complete the formalities of the event.
Chief Minister Mamta Banarjee has shown keen interest in cricket. In the past, she was present in the match against West Indies, which India won. She has been among the many people asking for Sachin Tendulkar’s name to be recommended for the prestigious Bharat Ratan award.
