Sachin Tendulkar walks on to the Wankhede turf for a World Cup TV shoot with Sourav Ganguly
It was a rather busy day for batting icon Sachin Tendulkar, who relived his life's best moment — winning the 2011 Cricket World Cup at the Wankhede Stadium — for a television show that he and Sourav Ganguly will participate in before and during the 2015 ICC World Cup.

The Wankhede Stadium was decorated with India flags and promotional items of the channel whose presenter quizzed both the former India captains about their various World Cups memories. Tendulkar, the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup brand ambassador, changed his attire thrice.
No 10 jersey
Tendulkar first wore the No 10 jersey and blue jeans as he walked down the pavilion steps with a bat. At the other end of the pavilion was former teammate Harbhajan Singh, who was reliving the April 2, 2011 World Cup win.
Around 100 young cricketers from various clubs in the city were called to be a part of the show that will be aired later. Young spinner Musheer Khan was among the several cricketers invited to be part of the shoot. Tendulkar was also seen in a green shirt as the young cricketers chanted, 'Sachin Sachin.'
The third attire change came in the form of a black shirt — for the talk show — where the presenter introduced him as the god of cricket, which was followed by a thunderous applause by the audience.
