Sachin Tendulkar made his debut when he was only 15 years plus old when he visited Pakistan with the Indian team in 1989. On November 15, 1989, Tendulkar first took the mantle of a batsman at the National Stadium at Karachi in Pakistan. All of 16 years old, Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar was on that fateful day, thrust into the international spotlight. He was able to score only 15 runs in his first innings before he was bowled out by fellow debutante Waqar Younis. However, he followed up his first stint on the crease with a masterful 59 runs in the first innings of the second test at Faisalabad. He also saved the match for India when he made a masterful 55 on a fast green top in the second inningss of the 4th test at Sialkot.
Since then Sachin has performed feats that border on the unimaginable in both forms of the game, scoring 29 test centuries and 33 one day tons.
Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar was born on 24th April 1973 in Mumbai, Maharashtra. He was a child prodigy with immense talent for the bat. He fist made cricketing headlines when he shared a brilliant 664-run unbeaten partnership with Vinod Kambli for third wicket. The game was between Sahradashram and St.Xavier’s school. Tendulkar was 326 not out and Kambli 349 not out.

Tendulkar made his first test century at Old Trafford, on August 14 1990. India was chasing a target of 408 and was reduced to 127 for five. Tendulkar blasted a masterful 119 off 189 balls in the company of Manoj Prabhakar.

Tendulkar was playing his 79th one-day international, against Australia at Colombo in 1994, when he hit his first century in the shortened version of the game. His 18th century came against Zimbabwe at Bulawayo just four years later placing him at the top of the list, passing Desmond Haynes in the 100-scoring stakes. He now has 11,000 runs and also 100 wickets in one-day cricket.
On 31st March 2000, Sachin Tendulkar created history by becoming the first batsman in the history of the limited over game to score 10,000 runs at Indore, against Australia.

His genius in cricket has been acknowledged by everyone. On his 90th Birthday, the legendary Don Bradman invited him to meet him in Australia.
Recognized as an exceptional cricketer not just in India, but the world over Sachin had a unique honor bestowed upon him when he was invited as the first overseas player in 130 years, by the Yorkshire county in England. He was all of nineteen years old and had the added burden of being the first "colored" player for the county. Undeterred, Sachin impressed all not only by his immense talent with the bat, but by his humility. Prompting Ex-Yorkshire player and self confessed Sachin fan Geoffrey Boycott to remark, "We'd have him back tomorrow if we could!"
A glittering career appears set to only shine more as Tendulkar is poised to overtake - save Donald Bradman’s monumental average of 99.96 - every batting record in the book.
