How a Mumbai lad became the King of International Batsmen


Born in Mumbai on 24th April, 1973 – a young boy from Dadar trained all his life to play cricket for India. Decades later, the name Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar brings goosebumps to cricket fans all over the country. Here is a look at the journey of Sachin Tendulkar.

1. The Shivaji Park Days
Born in Dadar, Sachin spent most of his youth looking at older kids playing cricket in the massive expanse of Shivaji Park. When he was barely tall enough to stand upright, Sachin used the bat as a crutch and as a weapon against bowlers in the nets in Dadar.

2. The Story Begins
At the tender age of 16 years and 205 days, Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar made his debut against India’s arch-rivals – Pakistan. He may have only made 15 runs in his first innings but was immediately grabbing the attention with his ability to deal with the opposition’s pacey bowling attack.

5. Life after cricket
On 16th November, 2013 – Sachin Tendulkar took to the field for the last time as a cricketer. Hanging up his boots in his home town of Mumbai. A member of the Rajya Sabha and a humble individual, Tendulkar is still revered to this day. The Wankhede Stadium still sings the local hero’s name whenever he makes an appearance in the stands, to this day.
