NEW DLHI: After guiding Mumbai to a four-wicket win over Haryana in the Ranji Trophy, which was his final domestic game, Sachin Tendulkar said that he is now looking forward to his 200th Test match against West Indies. This match will mark an end to the God of Cricket’s 24-year cricketing career. CNN-IBN and IBN7 will pay tribute to the legend through their special programming - Thank You Sachin.



Under this, four special half-hours will showcase fellow cricketers or eminent personalities from the fields of arts and music paying tribute to Sachin and talking about the impact he has had on modern India. Among them will be Rahul Dravid, Aamir Khan, Amitabh Bachchan and Lata Mangeshkar.



A special one-hour documentary on 3rd November on IBN7 and on 10th November on CNN-IBN will chronicle the journey of the legendary cricketer, from his time as a child prodigy in Mumbai to becoming the greatest batsman in the world.



In another special segment starting 4th November till 18th November, there will be bytes from renowned personalities from various walks of life paying tribute to the master blaster.



On IBN7, special shows and segments dedicated to the sport’s greatest retirement will include ‘God of Cricket’, which will capture the journey of Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar from his childhood to becoming the God of Cricket; and ‘Great on Greatest’, in which some of the biggest names in international cricket such as Sunil Gavaskar, Kapil Dev and Brian Lara will share their memories and talk about the star & his game.



Rajdeep Sardesai, Editor-in-Chief, CNN-IBN, IBN7 and IBN-Lokmat, said, “In a cricket-crazy country like ours, there are hardly a handful of individuals who can generate the kind of frenzy and adulation that Sachin Tendulkar can. After years of excellence on the cricket field, Sachin finally bids adieu to his 24-year-long career. It is with great pride that we dedicate this special series of programming to the cricket icon who has won the hearts of billions across our nation and the world.”



Ashutosh, Managing Editor, IBN7 said, “While the entire nation is sad and emotional at the news of Sachin’s retirement, our special programming will take a walk down memory lane and celebrate the success story of the cricketer who has carried the expectations of a billion people and won their hearts over the years. The programming will also showcase rare photographs and interviews of Sachin with those who tracked his journey of becoming one of the greatest cricketer ever.”
