Asked which standard students would get to study Tendulkar as part of their syllabus, the minister said, "These things are to be finalised.

However, one thing is certain, that from June (the start of the forthcoming academic year), students will have a lesson on Tendulkar."

This is not the first time that students in the state will have to read on the life history of a cricketer as part of their syllabus.

The likes of Chandrakant Gulabrao "Chandu" Borde and 'little master' Sunil Gavaskar had found themselves in the pages of school syllabus.
