Tendulkar's wax statue to be unveiled at SCG

Sachin Tendulkar's wax statue will be unveiled at his favourite Sydney Cricket Ground tomorrow before being displayed at a museum in the city ahead of his 40th birthday on April 24.

Tendulkar's waxwork will be first unveiled at the SCG where he had played some memorable innings, courtesy Madame Tussauds in Sydney, media reports said.

Later in the day, his waxwork, expected to be a replica of the one in Madame Tussauds in London, will be displayed in the museum at scenic Darling Harbour, near the Sydney Aquarium alongside those of Donald Bradman and Shane Warne.

The expected display of Tendulkar's wax statue alongside those of Bradman and Warne is significant as he had posed with the two legends during a 1998 trip to Bradman's residence in Adelaide to wish the great Australian batsman on his 90th birthday.

Swami Army, the group of Indian supporters which was formed in India's tour of Australia in 2003, are expected to be present at the SCG for the unveiling tomorrow.

Tendulkar has scored three Test hundreds at the SCG including a 241 not out in 2004 — his best Test score then.
