Amid farewell frenzy at Eden, Sachin Tendulkar aims for bull's eye
As cricket fans all over anticipate Sachin Tendulkar's farewell from Tests, Eden Gardens in Kolkata, the venue for his 199th Test has plans in place to give a roaring send-off to the Master Blaster. However, amidst all the fanfare surrounding his penultimate game, Sachin is focussed on training hard ahead of the first of the two-Test series against West Indies. The 40-year-old put in the hard yards in the practice sessions on Monday.
