#Sachin!Sachin!: British Parliament to honour Sachin Tendulkar.

The Indian government has already awarded Sachin Tendulkar the Bharat Ratna -  India’s highest civilian honour in lieu of his storied career - and now the British government is set to honour the ‘Little Master’.

Indian-origin Leicester East MP - and ardent Cricket fan - Keith Vaz has tabled a motion in the House of Commons to congratulate Tendulkar on his extraordinary career.

The Early Day Motion – a chosen subject that will draw the attention and acknowledgment of politicians from across the political spectrum – will be introduced by Mr Vaz to honour Tendulkar, who has “served as an inspiration for millions around the world”.

The motion also commends the cricketer for his “selfless dedication” to the sport.

“This motion is a fitting tribute to such an exceptional batsman. Tendulkar is adored almost as much in the UK as he is India so it is only right that Parliament pays tribute to him”, Mr Vaz said.
Tendulkar, 40, retired from all forms of cricket after playing his 200th and final Test match at the famous Wankhede stadium in Mumbai on Saturday.

Millions of fans around the world, including British Prime Minister David Cameron, hailed the 40-year-old’s extraordinary, 24-year-long career, in the course of which he scored nearly 16,000 Test match runs, more than 18,000 One Day International runs and recorded an astounding 100 international centuries.
