Indian legend player and ever time great batsman Sachin Tendulkar will join Steve Waugh for Bradman honourees 2014 in next month at a gala dinner at the Sydney Cricket Ground on October 29.
Tendulkar will be the third Indian and fourth non-Australian after Sunil Gavaskar, Rahul Dravid and Sir Richard Hadlee. Tendulkar had impressive records at the SCG, scoring 3 centuries from five tests played at this ground, including an unbeaten innings of 241 in 2004 Test match. On the other hand Waugh scored 3 centuries from 17 tests at his home ground.
“There could be no more principled and deserving individuals in the game than Sachin and Steve. Were Sir Donald to still be alive I’m sure he would unhesitatingly applaud their recognition at the ground where his ambition to play Test cricket was first kindled,” said Bradman Foundation Executive Director Rina Hore.
