A temple for Sachin Tendulkar came up Tuesday in a Bihar village with a life-sized statue of the cricketer

The white marble statue was erected amid the chanting of Vedic prayers in Atarwalia, the village of Bhojpuri film star Manoj Tiwari in Kaimur district.

"It is a small gesture for the 'God of Cricket'," Tiwari told media in the village, about 100 km from here.

Tiwari said Tendulkar, who played his last cricket match for India last week in Mumbai, was "an incarnation of God in the world of cricket".
