Sydney, Oct 29: Former India captain and batting legend Sachin Tendulkar will visit the Bradman Museum and International Cricket Hall of Fame on Thursday (October 30), the Bradman Foundation announced today.
Tendulkar, who landed in Sydney on Tuesday (October 28), will be inducted as the 2014 Bradman Honouree along with former Australian skipper Steve Waugh. Tendulkar will travel by helicopter to Bowral (New South Wales) to be at the Bradman Museum. However, Waugh will not be with Tendulkar at the museum.
Tendulkar will attend a gala dinner at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) today where he will be inducted as Bradman Honouree.
"Please note Steve Waugh and Mark Taylor will unfortunately not be visiting," Bradman Foundation said.
"(Sachin) Tendulkar will arrive around 11.15 am on Thursday (October 30) arriving in superstar style, via helicopter and he'll be met by students from the University of Wollongong, the Bradman Foundation's education partner and the students of Bowral Public School; where Sir Donald Bradman went to school and he may perhaps even join in their games on Bradman Oval," the Foundation said.
"Tendulkar is one of the International Cricket Hall's twenty 'Greats of the Game' which are honoured in the Museum's International Gallery. Tendulkar will see this and more when he receives a personal guided tour of the Museum by the esteemed curator David Wells. Whilst inside the Museum Tendulkar will also have time to meet with the Museum's long-serving volunteers and have his photograph taken by the famous 'final salute' bronze statue in the Bradman courtyard which is situated next to the garden where Lady Jessie and Sir Donald Bradman's ashes were scattered in 2001.
"The Bradman Foundation is honoured to welcome Tendulkar to the Museum, especially the morning after he and Waugh are inducted as the 2014 Bradman Honourees joining the likes of Alan Davidson AM MBE, Dennis Lillee AM MBE and Mark Taylor AO," it added.
