Happy Birthday, Sachin Tendulkar! Rightfully nicknamed as ‘God of Cricket’ Sachin turns 46 April 24. The Little Master is considered to be the Greatest of All Time (GOAT).
The God of cricket holds many records during his playing career spanning two decades – 200 Tests, 100 international hundreds, 34357 international runs… You name them and he had them.
Sachin Tendulkar made his debut in the international cricket in 1989 when he was just 16 years against Pakistan and despite a bloodied nose and a few failures, Tendlkar became the greatest batsman since the days of Don Bradman.
He had the ability to turn games around—bat first or in a chase—he won millions of hearts across the world. In his 24 year glittering career, Tendulkar set numerous records and reached various milestones.
Tendulkar finished his career as the leading run-getter in international cricket, with 34,357 runs across formats — 15,921 in 200 Tests, 18426 in 463 ODIs and 10 in 1 T20 international.
Tendulkar was the first player to smash a double hundred in ODIs when he struck 200 not out off 147 balls against South Africa in Gwalior on February 24, 2010.
He made a record six World Cup appearances eventually ending up on the triumphant side in his last, in 2011 at the Wankhede stadium when India defeated Sri Lanka in the final.
He played his final match — his 200th Test — at his home ground, the Wankhede stadium, in November 2013 when India hosted West Indies in a Test series.
Tendulkar also played at the lucrative Indian Premier League for Mumbai Indians. In 78 matches, the master blaster scored 2334 runs with the help of one century and 13 fifties
