Indian film star builds shrine to Sachin Tendulkar

INDIAN cricket fans describe Sachin Tendulkar as the god of cricket.

Now they will be able to worship the recently retired batting legend in a new temple to be opened in his honour next year.

The shrine is being built by Manoj Tiwary, a local film star, and will cost $A122,000.

Tendulkar retired from international cricket following India's Test victory over the West Indies in Mumbai last week.

He played in 664 international matches, scoring 34,357 runs including 100 centuries.
