SACHIN TENDULKAR ARRIVES TO SYDNEY
Sachin Tendulkar’s wax figure arrives at the SCG!
Madame Tussauds has welcomed the arrival of one of the world’s greatest sporting legends, Indian cricket great Sachin Tendulkar. The wax version of the sports star was cheered on by loyal Swami Army fans at the famous Sydney Cricket Ground as they gathered around the star to celebrate his permanent arrival in Sydney.
The internationally renowned batsman, nicknamed the Master Blaster, holds the record for the highest number of runs in Test history and is widely considered to be one of the greatest batsmen of all time. The Indian superstar recently received the order of Australia for his outstanding contribution to international cricket, and as well as being a cricket icon, Tendulkar is also seen as role model for young cricket players all over the world.
The SCG remains a successful playing field for Tendulkar, who during his time playing Test cricket on the ground has managed to hit three centuries and achieve an average of 157.
It took 800 hours and a team of over 60 artists to immortalise the sports star into the second version of Tendulkar, the first of which resides in Madame Tussauds London. The Mumbai born batsman joins the A-list line up of other sporting legends we have here at Madame Tussauds Sydney, such as Shane Warne, Sir Donald Bradman and Ian Thorpe; he will also be the very first Indian sports personality to be featured .
