Bangalore:Meet Ram Bhandari, the Bangalore man who gave Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar the bat with which he created history yesterday.
When the flashbulbs went into overdrive after Master Blaster hit his 50th Test century in South Africa on Sunday, one man in Bangalore quietly celebrated his own share in Sachin Tendulkar's milestone. As Tendulkar looked heavenward, 50-year-old Ram Bhandari admired the man in whose hand was his 'creation' -- the bat with which he cornered that crucial single off Dale Steyn at the Centurion.
"It's his favourite bat," beamed Bhandari. "I feel I am part of Tendulkar's history. It is by God's grace that the bat I crafted is in the legend's capable hands."
