After 100th ton, Sachin to donate bat to Eden Gardens
"Sachin has told us that he would donate the bat with which he scores his 100th international hundred to the cricket museum," CAB joint secretary Biswarup Dey told mediapersons here.
Tendulkar also donated his gloves and a national team jersey after the Mahendra Singh Dhoni led side defeated the West Indies at the Eden Gardens Thursday to record India's 75th Test win on home soil.
Dhoni also gifted the CAB the bat with which he struck a hundred in the second Test that ended here in a thumping innings and 15 run win for India.
Keeping in mind the milestone of the 75th win, the CAB had requested the Indian team to donate some memorabilia like their cricketing gear.
The equipment will be displayed in the "India's 75th Test win at Home" section of the museum.
