On March’ 3 at the Eden Gardens after the practice session of the Kolkota Knight Riders, he stated that Sachin Tendulkar is a Bharat Ratna there is no doubt and he should be conferred the most respectable award Bharat Ratna. Even our former cricket captains like Kapil Dev and Ajit Wadekar also described Sachin Tendulkar as ‘ Kohinoor of Cricket’ and milestone man , who is really deserving to be honored and should be conferred the most important civilians award that is Bharat Ratan Award. By his fabulous performance in Gwalior in one day international cricket he became the first cricketer in the history of one day cricket to score a double century (hundred0, as he has made the record of highest international runs 31,041 and 93 centuries. Indian’s only World Cup winning Captain Kapil Dev has also supported the view of others specially Wadekar that Sachin is a remarkable and most talented cricketer and actually deserves this Award.
Former Captains of Indian Cricket Team and their Views : Wadekar told that Sachin Tendulkar has touched several milestones during his 20- year cricket career in the international cricket and he certainly deserves the Bharat Ratna, every body will be very happy if he gets the highest honour of the country. Kapil Dev said that his views would be the same if Sachin would had not achieved the double century in one day international cricket in Gwalior. He said if Sachin Tendulkar would have got a duck in the innings his views and would also remain same for him that he should be awarded by the Bharat Ratan. As per Kapil Dev no decision should be taken on the basis of performance in one match but it should be taken as per his overall performance and contribution. Similarly, another former captain and former selection committee chairman Dilip Vengsarkar supported the same demand. As per Vengsarkar if any player deserves the Bharat Ratna then it must be Sachin Tendulkar only and he must get this honorable award. Former captain Wadekar also hoped that Sachin would continue his cricket even after the 2011 World Cup to be co-hosted by India Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. He stated that Sachin proved his fitness with his fielding and can play for two more years at least after the world cup next year. Even the former captain of England Nasser Hussain also believes that Sachin Tendulkar was even better than Don Bradman, the iconic Australian batsman. Wadekar who has also worked with Sachin Tendulkar as coach of the national team, explained that as per his observations no any other batsmen can play better than Sachin Tendulkar not even Bradman as Sachin has touched the peaks of all the three forms of cricket – Test Match, One Day and Twenty-Twenty.
Shiv Sena – Chief Bal Thakery’s views about Sachin’s Honor: The Shiv Sena supreme Bal Thackeray is really impressed by Sachin Tendulkar’s performance in Gwalior- One Day International Match, where he made double century and broke the records. Bal Thackeray said that Sachin Tendulkar is already a ‘Bharat Ratna’ who has performed so well and made such a unbreakable records for the country and already given a great honor to the country by making 200 runs in a one day cricket history. So the most honorable civilians’ award should be given to Sachin only he is a real deserving person for the “Bharat Ratna Award”. For such a performance, Shiv Sena had arranged a party in Mumbai for the Master blaster Sachin in Saamna where Bal Thackrey told that hundred crore people of this country have already awarded or Crowned Sachin Tendulkar as Bharat Ratna , when he gave such a fabulous performance by making records. Thackrey Said Sachin does not need any recommendation to be awarded Bhrarat Ratna, as he is already one. This proves that Shiv Sena is feeling very proud for Maharashtra to be having such a talented Marathi cricketer moreover which most probably going to be awarded for the highest honored Award of the country also. Along with Shiv Sena other political parties are also demanding that Sachin Tendulkar should be awarded with the Bharat Ratna award. Thirty Six years old right handed bats-man Sachin Tendulkar was born in Mumbai. Just to see his mind blowing performances people use to call him Little Master, master blaster and the little champion.
