Sharjah Stadium stand renamed after Tendulkar on his 50th birthday

The Sharjah Cricket Stadium’s ‘West Stand’ was renamed as ‘Sachin Tendulkar Stand’ to pay tribute to India’s batting legend on his 50th birthday at a ceremony held at the venue on Monday.
Tendulkar had scored 143 runs against Australia at this stadium in April 1998 in a One-day International dubbed ‘Desert Storm’ after the play was disrupted for 25 minutes due to a sand storm. His century helped India to the tri-series final against Australia, which India won by six wickets with Tendulkar smashing 134 on his 25th birthday.
The Sydney Cricket Ground also paid tribute to Tendulkar on Monday, unveiling a set of gates named after him and West Indies batting great Brain Lara.
Tendulkar retired from the professional cricket in 2013 after hitting 100 international centuries in a long illustrious career of 24 years.
