Millions and millions of fans were heartbroken, when 16 months ago, Indian cricketing legend Sachin Tendulkar bid adieu to the game. Fondly hailed by Indians as a "the god of cricket", Tendulkar's autobiography 'Playing It My Way' was released to a tremendous response in November last year. As Tendulkar turns a year older today, fans from all over the world took to social media to share, discuss and talk about the great sportsperson.
Former Indian legend Sachin Tendulkar is known for his golden cricketing days. The right-handed batsman, who is regarded as one of the greatest of all time, scored 100 centuries, over 18,000 runs and took 200 wickets in international cricket for India. But away from the sport, the master blaster is missing his “Australian Open” days.
Tendulkar shared his old black and white photo, which will surely give nostalgia to his fans. Tendulkar has been an inspiration for many cricketers in the world made his debut in 1989 against Pakistan in Karachi and went on to play 200 Tests for India, scoring 15921 runs at an average of 53.78. He has 51 centuries to his name in the longest form of the game. He also has 49 centuries to his name in ODI cricket.
But Tenulkar has often said that as a child he was among the naughtiest of kids, who used to trouble his parents alot. Tendulkar is often said to be among the most wittiest character in the Indian dressing room. The batting icon retired from international cricket in 2013 after playing his historic 200th Test at the Wankhede Stadium.
