Sachin Tendulkar is perhaps the greatest batsman the world has seen after the great Sir Don Bradman. Playing worldwide cricket from age 16, breaking and setting records all along, Sachin Tendulkar is indeed a gift to the cricketing world. From being a child prodigy who made a century on first class debut to becoming the player to score the most number of international centuries, Sachin Tendulkar has done it all. He made his debut against Pakistan in 1989 and has since played 132 Tests and 363 ODIs and has averages of 55 and 44 respectively. He has scored 74 international centuries which is more than anyone else. He is also only the second Indian to score 10,000 runs in Tests.

Full Name: Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar

Born: 24 April 1973, Bombay

Major Teams: Mumbai, Yorkshire, India.

Batting Style: Right Hand Bat

Bowling Style: Right Arm off Break, Leg Break, Right Arm Medium

Sachin Tendulkar was made captain of India in 1996 but found the job unsuitable and resigned in 1998, only to be appointed captain once again in 1999-2000. This time also he resigned and Sourav Ganguly was made the new skipper. This is maybe one of the few achievements that has eluded Tendulkar-leading the side successfully. However once free from the additional responsibilities, Sachin went back to his brilliant form and continued to pile up runs. Mentally powerful and a very deep thinking cricketer, Sachin Tendulkar is a master of the game. Apart from his blistering batting, he can also bowl and has often bowled the side to victory. He has the most centuries in ODI cricket against Australia, South Africa, New Zealand, Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe. He is a complete team man, humble and selfless. This was specially highlighted when he returned to join the team in England during the 1999 World Cup after the sad demise of his father.

Some outstanding achievements of his career are:
