Sachin requests Wadekar to lead Gymkhana

Mumbai: Master blaster Sachin Tendulkar has extended his support to former Indian captain Ajit Wadekar who is contesting for the post of President in the the famous Shivaji Park Gymkhana in Dadar.

In a letter to the former captain, who led India to historic series win in West Indies in 1971, Sachin said that the gymkhana, where he learnt his ropes as a young boy, needed Wadekar's leadership qualities in its centenary year.

"I am glad to learn that the Shivaji Park Gymkhana (SPG), which has produced so many cricketers for the country, will be celebrating centenary soon," the Mumbai batsman has said in his letter to Wadekar.

"It is also heartening to see the tremendous progress made by SPG not only in cricket but in other sports like tennis, billiards and lots of indoor games too, especially in the last six years.

"It requires sporting leadership and I hope that you continue to lead SPG as President in the centenary year too", Tendulkar has said in his letter to Wadekar.

Former Indian players like Dilip Vengsarkar and  Sandeep Patil have also extended their support to Wadekar.
