While inaugurating the international stadium, the legendary batsman Sachin Tendulkar said:

“I had a dream to play for India and win the World Cup. It was a long journey. You should sweat out as much as the water used by the groundsman to maintain the field.”

He also lauded Pawar for providing better cricket facilities.
