'It feels special to be part of history'

January 16, 2009 18:38 IST

Sachin Tendulkar on Friday described it as special feeling to be a part of the team which created history by claiming a record 38 Ranji Trophy titles in Hyderabad.

"Mumbai cricket has had a terrific history and some terrific players who represented the state. It feels truly special to be part of history," Tendulkar said. 

"I would like to congratulate all my team members who really worked hard and they deserved every bit of it," he told reporters after the 243-run win against Uttar Pradesh at the Rajiv Gandhi International stadium.

"Mumbai has done it for the 38th time. Wasim mentioned that we made it to the finals on 42 occasions. That's a great record to have," he added. 

Tendulkar scored 122 in the semi-finals against Saurashtra despite suffering from fever, which continued till the final match.
