HPCA to build museum in honour of Tendulkar
Dharamsala: Not to be left behind in honouring retiring icon Sachin Tendulkar, the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association on Monday announced that it will pay tribute to the legendary batsman by dedicating a museum to him in the HPCA premises.
"It gives us immense pleasure to announce that HPCA would be celebrating retirement of mastero Sachin Tendulkar from international cricket by dedicating a cricketing museum at Dharamshala in his honour," the HPCA said in a statement.
The decision was taken after the HPCA`s executive meeting here.
"It is a small tribute by the cricket association to the greatest son of Indian cricket, who has inspired generations of cricketers across the world," said HPCA President Anurag Thakur.
"This is another feather in the cap of the HPCA, which is committed to providing and developing world class infrastructure in Himachal.
The museum would become a great centre of attraction for all the visitors who come to visit the picturesque HPCA stadium," he added.
The museum would have the details of Indian cricketing history and the players who have contributed to the development or brought glory to the country.
The executive meeting also discussed the recent court stay it managed to get after the HPCA was taken over by the state government in a midnight coup some days back.
