ONE of the world's biggest cricket superstars is coming to Hitchin this Sunday - and you could have the chance to meet him.
Indian legend Sachin Tendulkar will be at Hitchin Town Hall from midday for a two-hour session thanks to a link up with Hitchin Cricket Club.
Tendulkar, who has made a world record 39 Test centuries, will answer questions from his lifelong pal and current Hitchin overseas player Atul Ranade, as well as general ones from the gathered audience.
There will also be an auction for the chance to win signed memorabilia including an India ODI shirt and one of his bats.

The visit is part of Hitchin Cricket Club's attempts to raise the profile of the club and development of a colts section alongside the club's facilities.
