Sachin took the field on this particular day up against a potent Pakistani bowling lineup that featured players like Waqar Younis and Wasim Akram.
The renowned cricketer Sachin Tendulkar made his debut on November 15, 1989, at the age of 16, against Pakistan in Karachi. Over the course of a spectacular 24-year journey, he reached the pinnacle of the game. On this particular day, Sachin took the pitch up against a formidable Pakistani bowling lineup that featured players like Waqar Younis and Wasim Akram. After scoring fifteen runs, he strolled back to the pavilion, thoroughly bewildered by Younis’s rapid speed.
When he announced his retirement in 2013 during India’s series against the West Indies, commonly known as Sachin’s farewell series, it was the start of a journey that took him on experiences that lasted for 24 years. That knock came from a young cricket player.
The greatest batter to have ever played the game is Sachin, who is sometimes referred to as “The God of Cricket.” Sachin leads all international cricket run scorers with 34,357 runs at an average of 48.52 in 664 appearances. In international cricket, he holds the record with 100 centuries and 164 half-centuries. As far as players go, only he has a century of centuries.
Sachin is also the top run scorer in both forms, with 18,426 runs in ODIs and 15,921 runs in tests. He is the first player with 200 Test match appearances and an ODI double hundred.
In addition, he has taken 201 wickets in international matches, which makes him a very valuable alternative for spin bowling in a pinch. He is the all-time leader in caps with 664 appearances for his country. He played for India in the 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup winning squad.
During his six IPL seasons (2008–2013), Sachin, who played exclusively for the Mumbai Indians, amassed 2334 runs at an average of 34.84 in 78 matches. Sachin has amassed 13 fifty-five and one hundred wickets, striking 29 sixes and 295 fours with a strike percentage of 119.82. As a player with the team, he took home the trophy in the 2013 competition.
IPL 2010 was Sachin’s greatest performance to date. In 15 games, he amassed 618 runs at a 47.53 average and 132.61 strike rate. During the season, he achieved five fifties and his best individual score was 89*. That season, he took home the “Orange Cap.” MI came in second place that year.
