The Andhra Pradesh legislative assembly Thursday unanimously passed a resolution congratulating Sachin Tendulkar for scoring the first ever double century in one-day internationals (ODIs).
Amid thumping of desks by members, Chief Minister K. Rosaiah moved a resolution in the assembly congratulating Tendulkar on behalf of the entire house for achieving the feat. He hoped that the little master would bring more laurels to the nation.
Leader of Opposition and Telugu Desam Party president N. Chandrababu Naidu and leaders of all parties also hailed the unbeaten 200 scored by Tendulkar against South Africa in the second ODI at Gwalior Wednesday. They said the batting genius did India proud through his double ton.
Speaker N. Kirankumar Reddy conveyed his best wishes to Tendulkar.
‘Cricket is a gentleman’s game and Sachin Tendulkar is a true gentleman. He is a role model for all. We hope that he will continue playing cricket for few more years and set new records,’ he said.
