We know that the presence of God is everywhere, then how will the cricket field miss the presence of God. Sachin Tendulkar is not only a name, he is treated as the God of Cricket. He is also known as Master Blaster. Today, if cricket is a religion in India, then the reason behind this is Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar. He was born on 24th April 1973 in Mumbai. The man with 5ft 5inches has ruled the cricket world for many years. Although he has retired from all forms of cricket, still his reputation remains the same. Now he is one of the members of BCCI.
The God of cricket made his test debut against Pakistan on 15 November 1989, it was a test match played at Karachi. However, he could not make a dream debut as he scored only 115 runs in that game and got out to Waqar Younis. In his debut series, he got a nasty blow in his nose while playing a lethal bouncer of Wasim Akram. Everyone was speculating that he would leave the cricket field at that moment, but he played that game and scored a match-saving 97 runs stand with Navjot Singh Siddhu. He was a new star in making after that game. After that incident, he never looked back and the rest is now history. He holds so many records under his name.
He was the best batsman in his era, but not a good captain. If you take a look into his captaincy stats, it is very very poor. He led the team in a total of 98 matches including Test and ODI, in which he has won only 27 games.
Sachin Tendulkar’s full name is Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar. He is married to Anjali Tendulkar, who is a doctor by profession. They have two children, Sara Tendulkar and Arjun Tendulkar.
