January 4, 2008

Former Australia leg-spinner Richie Benaud, poses with a sculpture of himself following an official unveiling prior to day three of the second Test match between Australia and India in Sydney, on Thursday.

Special: Celebrating Sourav

The Benaud statue is the first of ten sporting legends to be honoured as a part of the Sydney Cricket Ground Trust sports sculpture project.

"The first thing I want to say is I like it. The positioning of the sculpture could hardly have been better. That was the spot that I always parked the car. A very nice gesture," Benaud said at the unveiling.
