Sachin Tendulkar added another feather to his cap on Wednesday when the Indian batting legend was inducted as one of the latest honourees in the Bradman Foundation.
At a gala dinner held at the historic Sydney Cricket Ground, former Australian captain Steve Waugh was the other cricketer to enter the Bradman Hall of Fame alongside Tendulkar.
Tendulkar’s appearance at the annual Bradman Foundation dinner is fitting as the late Aussie great once famously said that the Indian’s technique reminded him of his own.
Tendulkar, who had the honour of meeting Bradman on his 90th birthday at his Adelaide home, was later listed in an all-time XI prepared by the batting genius himself.
Recalling the meeting that took place in 1998 at Bradman’s Adelaide’s home, Tendulkar said both he and the other invitee, Shane Warne, were so daunted they couldn’t decide who should speak first to the legendary Aussie batsman.
