In a heartwarming display of mutual respect and admiration, cricketing icons Sachin Tendulkar and Brian Lara recently came together to unveil commemorative gates at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG). The gates, dedicated to the two legends, symbolize their remarkable contributions to the sport.
Tendulkar, the record holder for the most runs in international cricket (34357) and the only player to score 100 international centuries, expressed his fondness for the SCG, referring to it as his favourite ground away from India. The unveiling of the gates coincided with Tendulkar’s 50th birthday.
Lara, who still holds the record for the highest individual score (400 runs) in a single Test inning, expressed deep honour and revealed that the SCG holds special memories for him and his family. The event marked 30 years since Lara’s iconic knock of 277 at the SCG, etching his name in cricketing folklore.
