Fans epic reaction after seeing Sachin Tendulkar’s statue at Wankhede

New Delhi: The contribution made by Sachin Tendulkar to Indian cricket is not hidden from anyone. Most of the batting records in cricket are still registered in the name of Sachin. The record of most centuries and runs in ODI and Test cricket is currently in the name of Master Blaster. Saluting Sachin’s contribution to Indian cricket, his statue was unveiled on Wednesday 1 November during the World Cup 2023 at Mumbai’s famous Wankhede Stadium. This statue has been installed near the Sachin Tendulkar stand by the Mumbai Cricket Association.

This statue of Sachin was unveiled by Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde yesterday on the eve of the India-Sri Lanka match in the World Cup 2023. Apart from Sachin, BCCI Secretary Jai Shah and former BCCI President Sharad Pawar were also present on this occasion. Many cricket fans noticed Sachin’s face in the statue being similar to Australia’s Steve Smith and comments started coming in on social media regarding this.

In this statue, Sachin is shown playing a lofted straight drive. The interesting thing is that like Sachin, Smith also plays this shot very efficiently. Perhaps this was also one of the reasons why people saw Smith’s image in this statue. Sachin’s face is somewhat similar to Smith, hence people did not miss out on making interesting comments about the statue. Some comments were also made from the throw account.
