Sydney:

Sachin Tendulkar has made an unscheduled appearance at the Sydney Cricket Ground as a life-sized wax figure of the Indian batsman was unveiled in front of a throng of cricket fans.

Local Indian fans, known as the Swami Army, cheered and sang Indian chants as the "Little Master" was unveiled at the SCG before becoming a permanent attraction at Sydney's Madame Tussauds wax museum.

The waxwork is the latest honor bestowed on Tendulkar in Australia. Late last year he received the Order of Australia for his contribution to international cricket.

Tendulkar, who turns 40 on Wednesday, is currently in India representing the Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League. Speculation persists that Tendulkar to could soon retire from test cricket, ending a 23-year international career.
