AP A wax statue of Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar stands on the field at the SCG in Sydney on Saturday, April 20, 2013. Tendulkar's statue will takes its place on display at Madame Tussauds Sydney museum next to other A-list sports stars such as Shane Warne and Donald Bradman.

Sachin Tendulkar has made an unscheduled appearance at the Sydney Cricket Ground as a life sized wax figure of the Indian batsman was unveiled in front of a throng of cricket fans.

Local Indian cricket fans, known as the Swami Army, cheered and sang Indian chants as the “Little Master” was unveiled at the SCG before becoming a permanent attraction at Sydney’s Madame Tussauds wax museum.

The addition of the waxwork is the latest honour bestowed on Tendulkar in Australia. Late last year he received the Order of Australia for his contribution to international cricket.

Tendulkar, who turns 40 on Wednesday, is currently in India representing the Indian Premier League side of Mumbai Indians.

This report earlier wrongly mentioned that Sachin was playing for the Delhi Daredevils in the IPL
