Mumbai: tendulkar-nets300.jpgThe Cricket Club of India, which changed its rules in the 1980s to let a then 14-year-old Sachin Tendulkar use its dressing room, honoured the senior batsman as part of its 75th anniversary celebrations at the Brabourne Stadium here.

The 39-year-old became nostalgic at a function here last evening as he recollected his memories of the facility that shaped his formative years in the game.

"It is a special occasion. Whenever I come to CCI, I feel special. Thank you for the love and affection, it really means a lot to me. I remember my association with CCI started, when I was playing school cricket. I played Harris Shield finals here. I was playing cricket at Shivaji Park," Tendulkar said at the ceremony.
