Sydney Cricket Ground gates named after Tendulkar & Lara


A set of gates at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) have been named in honour of Sachin Tendulkar and Brian Lara to mark the Indian’s 50th birthday and the 30th anniversary of the West Indies batsman’s innings of 277 at the ground.

Cricket Australia said that visiting players would pass through the gates on their way to the pitch from the away dressing room in the Members Pavilion. Home players access the field via gates named after Australian great Don Bradman.

Lara, a frequent visitor to Australia, scored his brilliant double century in his first test at the ground in January 1993.
