Sachin Tendulkar is going to become the first Indian cricketer to feature on the cover of the Wisden Cricketers' Almanack.
Wisden Cricketers' Almanack, a cricket reference book which is published annually in the United Kingdom, announced that in a press release on Wednesday.
Tendulkar, 40, was also given the Bharat Ratna (India's highest civilian honour) by the president of India on Tuesday. Tendulkar retired from international cricket on November 16 last year, bringing an end to a 24-year-old illustrious career.
