Tendulkar began playing cricket at eleven, made his Test match debut on 15 November 1989 against Pakistan in Karachi aged sixteen, and represented Mumbai domestically and India internationally for nearly twenty-four years. In 2002, halfway through his career, Wisden ranked him the second-best Test and ODI batsman of all time, behind Don Bradman and Viv Richards, respectively. Tendulkar won the 2011 Cricket World Cup, his first in six World Cup appearances for India. He won “Player of the Tournament” in 2003. Tendulkar got the Arjuna Award in 1994, the Khel Ratna Award in 1997, the Padma Shri in 1999, and the Padma Vibhushan in 2008. The Prime Minister’s Office announced his Bharat Ratna award a few hours after his last match in November 2013. He was the first sportsperson and youngest recipient as of 2021. Tendulkar was nominated to the Rajya Sabha in 2012.
On April 24, 1973, Rajapur Saraswat Brahmin Maharastrian family Tendulkar was born at Nirmal Nursing Home in Dadar, Bombay. His father, Ramesh Tendulkar, was a prominent Marathi novelist and poet. His mother, Rajni, worked in insurance. Ramesh named Tendulkar Sachin Dev Burman. Nitin, Ajit, and Savita are Tendulkar’s half-siblings. Ramesh’s first wife died after her third child. Bandra’s Sahitya Sahawas Cooperative Housing Society nurtured Tendulkar (East). Tendulkar was a playground bully. Tendulkar liked tennis. He idolized John McEnroe and grew his hair long around 7 or 8. Tendulkar held a tennis racket and wore wristbands and headbands.
Sachin’s older brother, Ajit Tendulkar, introduced him to cricket in 1984 to manage his mischief. He met Ramakant Achrekar at Shivaji Park, Dadar. Sachin’s debut was awful. Ajit told Achrekar that he was self-conscious and performing differently because the instructor was observing. Ajit requested another game but watched from a tree. Sachin improved and was accepted at Achrekar’s academy again, presumably unnoticed. Bombay’s Kanga Cricket League included Ajit Tendulkar.
Achrekar spotted Tendulkar’s talent and recommended Sharadashram Vidyamandir (English) High School in Dadar, which had a good cricket team and produced many notable cricketers. Tendulkar previously attended Bandra’s Indian Education Society’s New English School (East). Achrekar coached him mornings and evenings at Shivaji Park. Tendulkar netted for hours. If Achrekar became bored, he would put a one-rupee coin on the stumps for the bowler who dismissed Tendulkar. If not dismissed, Tendulkar would get the coin. Tendulkar’s prized possessions are the 13 coins he earned. His aunt and uncle lived near Shivaji Park due to his busy schedule.
Initial domestic career:
The 14-year-old Tendulkar was chosen to play for Bombay in India’s top domestic first-class cricket tournament, the Ranji Trophy, on November 14, 1987. Though he was often utilised as a substitute outfield, he never made the final eleven. After the 1987 Cricket World Cup, Gavaskar retired from all forms of cricket. A year later, on 11 December 1988, at 15 years and 232 days, Tendulkar made his Bombay debut against Gujarat at Wankhede stadium and hit 100 not out, becoming the youngest Indian to strike a century on debut in first-class cricket. After watching him effortlessly beat India’s greatest fast bowler, Kapil Dev, in the Wankhede Stadium’s Cricket practise nets, where the Indian team was preparing to play the touring New Zealand side, Bombay captain Dilip Vengsarkar selected him for the team. He then scored a century in his debut Deodhar and Duleep Trophies, Indian domestic championships.
Bombay’s leading run-scorer was Tendulkar. He was the eighth-highest run-scorer with 583 at 67.77. He captained Mumbai in 1995–96 Irani Trophy. Sachin scored an undefeated century for Rest of India in the 1989–90 Irani Trophy match against Delhi. In 1988 and 1989, the Star Cricket Club sent a youthful Indian team to England with Sachin. Tendulkar’s 96 from 75 balls helped Bombay chase 355 from 70 overs in the 1990–91 Ranji Trophy final, which Haryana won by two runs after leading in the first innings.
Captain Tendulkar hit 140 and 139 against Punjab at Wankhede in the 1995 Ranji Trophy final. He batted for Mumbai in the Ranji Trophy final at Wankhede stadium against Haydrabad 53, 128 in 2000, Bengal 105, 43 in 2007.
After one first-class season, Raj Singh Dungarpur selected Tendulkar for the 1989 Indian tour of Pakistan. Tendulkar was considered for the earlier West Indies tour, but the Indian selection committee didn’t want him to face the West Indies’ dominant fast bowlers so early in his career. In November 1989, 16-year-old Tendulkar debuted in Karachi against Pakistan. He was bowled by Waqar Younis, who also made his debut in that match, but was noteworthy for how he handled the Pakistani pace attack. He refused medical attention when Younis smacked him in the nose with a bouncer in the fourth and final Test in Sialkot. Tendulkar hit 53 runs off 18 balls in a 20-over exhibition game in Peshawar, parallel to the bilateral series, including 27 runs (6, 4, 0, 6, 6, 6) against leg-spinner Abdul Qadir.
“One of the best innings I have witnessed,” said Indian skipper Krishnamachari Srikkanth. He scored 215 runs at 35.83 in the Test series and was dismissed in his sole ODI. Thus, Sachin Tendulkar became the youngest player to debut for India in Tests and ODIs aged 16 years and 205 and 238 days, respectively.
Both times Tendulkar was captain of the Indian cricket team, they didn’t do very well. When Tendulkar became captain in 1996, a lot was hoped for and expected of him. But by 1997, the team wasn’t doing very well. Azharuddin is said to have said “Nahin jeetega! Chote ki naseeb main jeet nahin hai! means, “He won’t win! It’s not in the little one’s fate to do that! “.
Tendulkar took over as captain from Azharuddin for his second term. He led India on a tour of Australia, where the newly crowned world champions beat them 3–0. Tendulkar, on the other hand, was named player of the series and player of the game in one of the games. Tendulkar quit as captain after India lost another Test series, this time to South Africa at home by a score of 0–2. Sourav Ganguly took over as captain in 2000.
During the 2007 tour of England by the Indian team, Rahul Dravid’s desire to step down as captain became public. Then, Sharad Pawar, the president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), asked Tendulkar to be captain. Tendulkar declined and suggested that Mahendra Singh Dhoni take over. Pawar later told people about this conversation. He said that Tendulkar was the one who first told him about Dhoni, who has since done well as captain.
2000 fixing matter:
In Indian cricket in the year 2000, there was a huge scandal about fixing games. After the incident, Sachin Tendulkar and three other senior cricketers worked hard to make sure that the players banned by the BCCI and whose performance was questionable would never play for the Indian team again. Sachin and his team did this work without making any public announcements.
There have been many calls for Tendulkar to be made captain, and he was offered the job in 2007 but turned it down. There are also many articles about what he did wrong as captain.
Tendulkar retired from One Day Internationals on 23 December 2012, although he will play Test cricket. Anil Kumble stated it would be “difficult to envisage an Indian (ODI) team roster without Tendulkar’s name in it,” while Javagal Srinath claimed Tendulkar “changed the way ODIs were played right from the time he opened in New Zealand in 1994”.
He swore off Twenty20 Internationals after playing against South Africa in 2006. After Mumbai Indians defeated Chennai Super Kings by 23 runs at Eden Gardens in Kolkata on 26 May to win the 2013 Indian Premier League, he retired from the IPL. After playing the 2013 Champions League Twenty20 for Mumbai Indians, he retired from Twenty20 and limited-overs cricket.
Tendulkar declared his retirement from all cricket on October 10, 2013. The BCCI scheduled the two matches in Kolkata and Mumbai at his request to hold his farewell at home. In his last Test innings against West Indies, he hit 74 runs, missing 16,000 Test runs by 79 runs. The next batsman was future skipper Virat Kohli. His retirement was marked by Bengal and Mumbai Cricket Association events. India Today hosted a daylong Salaam Sachin Conclave with cricket, politics, Bollywood, and other celebrities discussing him.
He led the MCC team in the Bicentenary Celebration match at Lord’s in July 2014. Tendulkar was named an ambassador for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 in December 2014. He has already been an ambassador for the 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup.So this is his second time. He was named an ambassador for the ICC Cricket World Cup for two tournaments in a row (2011 and 2015).
