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.

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.”
