Appearing in his 200th and final Test, iconic Indian batsman Sachin Tendulkar’s willow on Thursday sported a different look as the manufacturer’s sticker on the blade as well as the grip featured the tri-colour.

Tendulkar is playing his landmark 200th Test against the West Indies at his home ground in Mumbai.

Tendulkar, who usually wears a black grip on his bat, had a tricolour around his sponsor’s logo, specially designed for his final appearance.

“On the field, Sachin’s bat does all the talking and every stroke from his blade is driven by his passion for India and with the intention of making India win. Sachin wanted to dedicate his career to the country and use his adidas-ST bat as a symbolic representation of his commitment, Tushar Goculdas, Brand Director, adidas India said.

“Over the last few days, we worked very closely with the master to create this special bat featuring the Indian tri-colours, with which he will play his final test.”

This limited edition adidas-ST bat will be displayed at select adidas stores across the country for the fans.
