Sachin with Don Bradman on his 90th Birthday in Adelide

The picture of Don Bradman and Sachin Tendulkar, shot by a specially invited photographer on the occasion of his 90th birthday was later framed and auctioned at a special sit-in dinner (costing each person about $ US 70) in Adelaide. The picture which was framed and autographed by the Don fetched $A 22,500 (US $12,500).

Present at the meeting, which was aired as a special programme by Channel Nine, was Shane Warne, who talking of the meeting told a newspaper, ``Basically it was pretty much three cricketers sitting around chatting about the game they play and love. It was just that one of them was the greatest genius to play the game.''
