Sachin Tendulkar became the first recipient of the “Wisden India Outstanding Achievement Award”. Sachin was presented with a beautifully designed trophy at the first of six special dinners that will be held across the world.


In Dubai, not far from the stadium where he played one of his most memorable innings, the Desert Storm that overwhelmed Shane Warne and Australia at Sharjah in 1998, Tendulkar was at his candid best, answering an array of questions from Alan Wilkins, the former Glamorgan bowler who is now one of the faces of ESPN-Star Sports in Asia.

The Celebration Series will comprise five more such dinners over the next three years. It gives fans an opportunity to meet the master, interact with him and listen to him talk about the joys, tribulations and twists in what has been an unparalleled career. Singapore is likely to host the next one.
