Sachin Tendulkar to become Indian Airforce Group Captain

Sachin Tendulkar, India's all time great cricketer will be seen as a Group captain in the Indian Airforce.

The IAF has submitted a proposal to the Indian Defence Ministry to award Sachin Tendulkar an honorary Group Captain designation.

However, the Prime Minister and President of India should agree to the proposal before Sachin is conferred the titla.

Sachin will become the second cricketer to confer a honorary rank in the Armed forces. Earlier India's World Cup winning captain Kapil Dev had received the honorary rank of Lieutenant Colonel of the Territorial Army. Malayalam actor Mohanlal has also received the same honorary post last year.
