My Favourite Cricketer: Sachin Tendulkar


India is a cricket crazy country and there is a saying in India 'Cricket is my religion and Sachin is my God'. People in India are mad about Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar for he is the greatest ever One Day International player and one of the greatest Test Cricket player. The Master Blaster, holds several batting records, including the most Test centuries and the most one-day international centuries, and was rated in 2002 by Wisden as the second greatest Test batsman ever, after Sir Don Bradman.
He received the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna, India's highest sporting honour, for 1997-1998, and the civilian award Padma Shri in 1999. Tendulkar was a Wisden Cricketer of the Year in 1997.
Sachin was born on 24 April 1973 in Mumbai (then Bombay) into a middle-class family. His parents Ramesh and Rajni Tendulkar named him after his family's favourite music director Sachin Dev Burman. Sachin was sent to Sharadashram Vidyamandir School where he started his cricketing career under Coach Ramakant Achrekar. While at school, he was involved in a mammoth 664 run partnership in a Harris Shield game with friend and team mate Vinod Kambli. At the age of 14 Sachin became the youngest player ever selected for Mumbai in the West Zone Ranji Trophy league and tine legend was born.
Sachin played his first international match against Pakistan in Karachi in 1989, facing the likes of Wasim Akram, Imran Khan, Abdul Qadir, and Waqar Younis . However, his maiden Test century came in England's tour in 1990 . Tendulkar truly came into his own in the 1991-1992 tour of Australia that included a brilliant century on the fast and bouncy track at Perth.
Some other highlights of Tendulkar's cricket career include highlight number of Test centuries, overtaking Sunil Gavaskar's record 34) on 10 December 2005 vs. Sri Lanka in Delhi. He has played Test Cricket on 52 different grounds, the highest number ahead of Mhd. Azharuddirn 48) and Kapil Dev (47). He holds the record for the fastest to score 10 , 000 runs in the history of Test Cricket along with Brian Lara. Both of them achieved this feat in 195 innings.
Tendulkar's first ODI century came on September 9, 1994 against Australia in Sri Lanka at Colombo. Though it had taken Tendulkar 79 ODIs to score a century, to date, he has played more matches than any other cricketer. He has appeared on 89 different grounds and has scored the most runs as well as centuries. He is the first cricketer to cross l0,000-run mark in ODIs He is the only player to have over 100 innings of 50+ runs. He has the highest individual score among any batsmen in the world.
He is the only male cricketer to have ever scored 200 in ODI, the feat he achieved against South Africa in 2010. In 1998, Sachin made 1,894 ODI runs, which is still the record for ODI runs by any batsman in any given calendar year.
He is the pride of India. Everybody wants him. Everybody wants to be him. He was the first mega-star of the cricket world in terms of revenues from commercials. When he said, “Boost is the secret of my energy”, we believed him. When the dark clouds of match-fixing robbed us of our innocence in 2000. When Tendulkar said, “We will get through this”, We believed him. Whenever he stepped on to the field, we believed in him.
Today, several records remain etched on Sachin's name and most of them may remain on his name for ever. He is the highest run getter in ODIs and has scored nearly 44 ODI centuries, the most by any batsman.
He has achieved the highest number of Man of the Match awards (56) and most Man of the Series (14) awards. He is the first cricketer to get pass 16,000 runs. He has scored the most number of ODI fifties and is the only player to be in top 10 of ICC rankings for 10 years.
He is the first overseas player to play for English County Yorkshire. He is the only cricketer to receive Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna, Padma Shri and Arjuna Award. He has most number of international runs in all forms of the game and has been involved in six 200+ partnerships in One Day Internationals most by any batsman. On his name stands the record for most number of successive ODI appearances (185). He also has most number of Test appearances for India.
Tendulkar has the highest number of runs in World Cup matches 1,796 with a strike rate of 59.87. He has also won most number of Man of the Match awards in World Cup matches. He was the Player Of The Tournament in the 2003 Cricket World Cup for scoring 673 runs, the highest by any one in a single Cricket World Cup.
Sachin Tendulkar is considered one of the complete batsmen ever. He has all the shots in the book. Also, he is unarguably the biggest crowd puller and icon of the game. There were times in Indian households, when Sachin Tendulkar used to get out, people used to turn off their Television sets. Sachin has enthralled his legions of fans with many a great innings in more than twenty years that he has played cricket. But it is not just Sachin's willow that has enthralled cricket fans the world over, he has also made telling contributions with the ball.
