Tendulkar to grace Wisden magazine cover

March 25, 2010 14:31 IST

Sachin Tendulkar will grace the cover page of the April issue of the Wisden Cricketer magazine, which is recognising the Indian batsman's historic ODI double hundred against South Africa last month.

The world's best-selling cricket magazine made a late decision to change its original cover image to commemorate Tendulkar's landmark innings.

The magazine has a front cover tribute of Tendulkar's historic ODI double century on February 24 at Gwalior penned by its editor John Stern.

"This was a defining innings both in terms of it being the first double hundred after forty years of One-Day International cricket, but also because it confirmed Sachin's unmatched skill, endurance and appetite for the game after 20 years as an international cricketer," Stern said.

"An astonishing performance by one of the game's true greats," he added.

The April issue of the magazine will hit the stands on Friday.
