The city is all set to honour Sachin Tendulkar by naming a VIP stand at the Jawaharlal International Stadium after the legendary cricketer. The Greater Cochin Development Authority (GCDA) and Kerala Cricket Association (KCA) has already begun the proceedings in this regard. GCDA chairman N Venugopal said the decision will officially be announced at a press conference to be held at the stadium on Monday. The VIP box is positioned at the south of the stadium and has an area of 5,000 square feet. The box will bear the name and photographs of Sachin and will be proclaimed the Hall of Fame filled with chronicles and souvenirs from Sachin’s cricket life. “We are trying to acquire souvenirs such as jerseys, bat and ball signed by the player,” he said. “If everything goes as per plans, Indian team captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni will inaugurate the Sachin Pavilion at grand function to be held on November 21 prior to the India-West Indies match. Though the cricket lovers here never had an opportunity to witness Sachin Tendulkar’s fine batting performances, two five-wicket hauls in his career came at this ground in front of a packed crowd.
