Brian Lara is celebrating his 47th birthday today and wishes have been pouring in from all over the globe. One of the people who has wished Lara on his birthday is none other than Sachin Tendulkar. The Master Blaster took to his personal Twitter account to wish the great West Indian on his birthday.
Sachin Tendulkar will be back on the pitch. Don’t believe us? Here’s a reality check.
The Tarouba stadium in Trinidad and Tobago stadium will come alive as two of the biggest cricketing legends, Sachin Tendulkar and Brian Lara will be playing against each other in different teams on May 13 at the venue.
The match is played on the eve of the grand opening of the stadium. It took 12 years for The Tarouba stadium to come into existence. The initial budget of the stadium was $275 million. It was expected to be completed before the 2007 ODI World Cup but due to lacklustre approach, the work was stalled.
The budget of the construction of the stadium doubled up and even touched billions, and the whole project became subject to investigation. After going through various ups and downs and many controversies and turmoils, the stadium is finally set to see two of the legends of the game taking on each other which will be all worth the wait.
