Mamata felicitates farewell man Sachin

Kolkata, Nov 8 : West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee Friday felicitated batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar who played the penultimate Test match of his glittering career here.


Handing over a basket of goodies, Banerjee had a broad smile on her face as she placed a silk stole around Tendulkar's shoulders. She also gifted him one of her paintings - that of a tree - and presented a beige turban which was placed on the maestro's head by former Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly.

Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) president Jagmohan Dalmiya handed Tendulkar a memento - a banyan tree bearing 199 golden leaves - in addition to a golden coin used for the toss of the match.

Kolkata Police Commissioner Surajit Kar Purkayastha also gifted a Durga idol to the cricketing genius.
