Sachin felicitated by Indian media.

Sachin Tendulkar

It was the Indian media's turn to felicitate Sachin Tendulkar for reaching 50 Test hundreds and it was done in grand fashion at the Indian team's hotel on Tuesday evening.

The Indian team management provided a room at the hotel to enable the touring media contingent to honour Tendulkar, who was touched by the gesture from the fourth estate.

Tendulkar remembered the time when, on his maiden Test tour to Pakistan in 1989, the media and players had a memorable party where everyone had to wear something out of the ordinary. A 16-year-old Tendulkar came wearing lipstick. The bunch of gifts for the batting maestro included a salver, a champagne bottle, a book on Nelson Mandela, another book on South African wildlife, two vuvuzelas and a Jabulani ball used in the last football World Cup. "My son Arjun will love this ball," he said as he thanked the cricket writers for honouring him.
