Legendary Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar became one of three cricketing greats to be inducted into the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame on Thursday during a ceremony in London. The others include South Africa's Allan Donald and Australia's Cathryn Fitzpatrick.

Sachin Tendulkar, who played 200 Tests and holds the record for the most number of Test runs and Test hundreds, thanked everyone who was by his side over a 'long international career', adding, "My parents, brother Ajit and wife Anjali have been pillars of strength while I was lucky to have someone like coach Ramakant Achrekar as an early guide and mentor."

With his induction, Sachin Tendulkar becomes the sixth Indian cricketer to be included in the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame.
