Teammates hail Tendulkar with humour
Mumbai: Soon after winning the two-Test series against the West Indies, the Indian team dressing room at the Wankhede Stadium witnessed some humourous remarks in honour of Sachin Tendulkar from his teammates here Saturday.
Back-to-back century-maker Rohit Sharma said all the players took turn to give "funny speeches in honour" of Tendulkar. Coach Duncan Fletcher was the last speaker, making his customary post-series remarks.
"There were funny speeches in the dressing room. Coach Duncan Fletcher also spoke as he normally does after every series," said Rohit without revealing what exactly was said in the speeches.
The team has planned a big bash for Tendulkar in the evening - and there is so much more to celebrate after he was awarded the Bharat Ratna, India's highest civilian honour.
“We have some plans for the evening,” said Rohit.
After the speeches were over, Tendulkar for one last time came out of the dressing room to greet the fans waiting outside.

More It is a day of celebration for all cricket fans across the world as master blaster Sachin Tendulkar was born on this day in 1973. It has been 6 long months since the little master's retirement. There is hardly anything left which this veteran hadn't achieved in his illustrious career. From being the highest run scorer in both forms of cricket, along with making 100 centuries or even being the first batsman who was given out by a third umpire, the list is endless. Almost every record has been in his kitty. Sachin is the role model for many and this man made it a point to exercise his franchise even on this special day.
