Sudarshan Pattnaik bids farewell to Sachin Tendulkar with his sand art

The famous sand artist Sudarshan Pattnaik was one among the thousands who came forward in the last few days to pay tribute to the Indian cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar on the occasion of his 200th and final international match in Mumbai.

Mr. Pattnaik made a beautiful art piece of Sachin Tendulkar by sculpting 200 colourful cricket bats on the Puri sea beach in the eastern Indian state of Odisha. 

Sachin Tendulkar will complete his 24 years long cricketing career with his 200th test match at Wankhede Stadium, his home turf in Mumbai.

The artist has sculptured the cricket bats made of sand in different colours and the sculpture lured domestic and international tourists. 

Mr. Pattnaik said: "As Sachin Tendulkar is retiring from cricket, so we thought of saluting him in a grand way and therefore, we made around 200 cricket bats out of sand to pay him a tribute."
