Sachin to join Indian Air Force as Group Captain on Friday

The Indian Air Force (IAF) is all set to honour master blaster Sachin Tendulkar with the rank of Honorary Group Captain on Friday.


New Delhi, Sep 2 : The Indian Air Force (IAF) is all set to honour master blaster Sachin Tendulkar with the rank of Honorary Group Captain on Friday.

Air Headquarters has already finalized Tendulkar's name for the honour.

There was considerable debate as to what rank the great batsman should be given. Wing Commander and Squadron Leader were deemed too junior for the national icon, who has played for India for over 20 years.

Tendulkar's fans will have to wait till Friday before seeing their icon in IAF uniform.

In 2008, the Territorial Army made film star Mohanlal an Honorary Colonel.

It conferred the same honour on Kapil Dev, while industrialist Vijaypath Singhania was made an Air Commodore for holding a world record in high altitude hot balloon flying.
