Chennai, Jan 26: Master blaster Sachin Tendulkar said he was hoping to hit good form in the third ODI against the West Indies tomorrow as the M A Chidambaram stadium here has been a `special ground for him.`
Speaking at a function in which Union Minister Dayanidhi Maran inaugurated the platinum jubilee celebrations of Tamil Nadu cricket association (TNCA) by releasing a commemorative stamp at the ground, Sachin said the historic Chepauk ground always occupied a special place in his heart.
Sachin`s observations stemmed from the fact that he had played some sterling knocks in both Test and ODI matches here, including his famous Test century against Wasim Akram-led Pakistani team in January 1999. He had also scored three more hundreds at this ground.
About the day-night ODI on Saturday which India need to win to wrap up the four match series 3-0, the Mumbai legend said, ``It will be a great match``.
Sachin has not been in great form after his return to the team following his shoulder elbow injuries although he had played a few sparkling knocks besides exhibiting a glimpse of his skills as a surprise weapon in the bowling attack on a few occasions.
The master blaster and team India captain Rahul Dravid were also felicitated on the occasion.
