Nagpur: Mark Mascrenhas, the marketing agent of cricket star Sachin Tendulkar, died on Sunday in a road accident at Kharbi, about 80 kms from here.Mascrenhas, 44, is survived by his wife, two sons and two daughters.The WorldTel chief, travelling in a Tata Sumo along with three foreigners whose identities are still to be confirmed, was on his way to Kanha National Park (Madhya Pradesh) from Mumbai via Nagpur when the front tyre of the vehicle burst at Kharbi, adjoining Bhandara district, police said.The vehicle turned turtle and Mascrenhas died on the spot due to severe head injury. A post mortem would be conducted later in the evening and his body will be subsequently handed over to his family.Mascrenhas' three co-passengers are being treated at the Bhandara Civil Hospital. Family sources in Bangalore had earlier said the business tycoon died at Nagoor in Tamil Nadu after his vehicle collided head-on with another speeding car. But they and police later confirmed the accident took place at Kharbi. Mascrenhas shot into limelight when he signed a multi-million deal with Tendulkar in 1996 making the batsman the highest paid cricketer ever. The five-year contract between Tendulkar and WorldTel was renewed late last year for an undisclosed amount, believed to be in excess of Rs 50 crore, setting a new benchmark in cricket.Mascrenhas was also planning to start a global chain of hotels carrying Tendulkar's name.
