On November 2, India is all set for its first game against Sri Lanka at the famous Wankhede Stadium. Excitingly, the BCCI plans to honor Sachin Tendulkar by unveiling a life-sized statue outside the stadium on November 1.
There’s going to be a special event attended by Sachin Tendulkar, the Indian cricket team, and other important guests. The statue will find its place near the Sachin Tendulkar stand inside the Wankhede Stadium. Amol Kale, the president of MCA, mentioned, “We’re working on the final details, and formal invites will be sent out soon.”
