Mumbai: With Sachin Tendulkar set to play his farewell Test in Mumbai on November 14 against the West Indies, two of his former teammates on Thursday heaped praise on him.
"It is a mixed moment personally for me. We are used to seeing that after wicket number 2, the person who goes to bat is Sachin Tendulkar. That we will miss. But we are also proud to witness history of any player playing 200 Tests. That is something phenomenal because nobody has done that before. He is a real ambassador for the game," said former middle-order batsman Praveen Amre.
Amre remembered his debut ODI at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata when he and Tendulkar won the match for the team.
