"Last goodbye to 22 yards" now on social media
New Delhi: A documentary charting the euphoria around final days of legendary Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar in the game will be available on social media platforms, including Youtube from Saturday.
The film brings out people emotions during Tendulkar`s last Ranji Trophy encounter in Haryana and the final Test-series against the West Indies in November last year. The documentary, prepared by sports journalist Jasvinder Sidhu, is called "Last Goodbye to 22 yards".
"This film is a tribute to the greatest cricketer the world has ever seen. This 38-minute film, subtitled in English, is like a documentary evidence of what exactly Sachin means to India," said Sidhu.
"It has been an amazing experience making this film. From a three-year-old girl to a 64-year-old retired government official, everyone eagerly wanted to be a part of Sachin`s journey," he said.
The film will also be available on Facebook and Twitter. Covering the tiny village of Lahli in Haryana, where Tendulkar played his last Ranji match, and to the metropolises of Kolkata and Mumbai, where he played the final two Tests of his cricketing life, the film captures the mood of the country during those emotional weeks.
