Senior batsman Sachin Tendulkar will stay in presidential suite of Hotel Landmark during the second Test match between India and Sri Lanka starting in Kanpur from Tuesday.
The five-star hotel, where both the teams will stay, has decided to book the most expensive and the only suite in the hotel for Tendulkar to honour his rare fate of completing 20 years and achieving 30,000 runs in international cricket.
The hotel has also decided to present Tendulkar with a citation, which comprises every description of his international records.
"Sachin Tendulkar is coming to the city after completing his 30,000 runs and 20 years in international cricket. To honour the achiever of such a rare fate, we have decided to place him in the most expensive and hotel's only presidential suite," Vinay Dheer, General Manager of hotel told PTI.
"We have booked suite number 1105 for the master blaster and it's on the eleventh floor of the hotel. A citation will also be presented to Sachin consisting of his international records including his 30,000 run fate," Dheer added.
The hotel has also prepared a special cake for the champion batsman to celebrate his 20 years in international cricket and will be serving him plain 'khichdi' on the direction of BCCI.
The other members of the team will also stay on the 11th floor but would be alloted normal rooms, Dheer said.
