Bangalore: Sachin Tendulkar capped a fine year with the most coveted cricketing reward in recent times ‘The Sir Garfield Sobers Cricketer of the Year’ Award as the maestro glittered bright amidst a galaxy of leading players at the LG ICC Awards night here on Wednesday. Tendulkar became the second Indian to win the award after Rahul Dravid bagged it in 2004.

After scoring 1,000 Test runs this year besides becoming the first man to score a double hundred in ODI cricket while South Africa wilted against him at Gwalior, Tendulkar scored another double at the awards function as he also won the “LG People’s Choice Award.”
