Sachin Tendulkar : The
Champion of Champions
Sachin Tendulkar made his international debut in ODIs and Tests at the age
of 16 against Pakistan and the fiery pace of Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis.
He then went to England as a part of the national side, and has not looked
back ever since. Born on 24 April 1973 in Mumbai, he is the star of the
Indian cricket team.
The greatest batsman in the world today, Sachin Tendulkar has the
cricketing world at his feet. Immensely gifted and blessed with an
impeccable technique, Tendulkar´s batting is a dream, combining timing,
elegance and power.
On the Pitch
The first batsman to score 10,000 runs in one-day cricket, making the
record in the third game of a five-match series against Australia on the
31st of March 2001. He reached the landmark when he scored 34 runs in his
266th match and 259th innings. Tendulkar, 27, in his amazing 12-year career,
has scored a world record 28 hundreds and 50 half-centuries in his 10,000

batting, he has reached a stage that others can only dream of. He has
destroyed practically every bowling attack in the world. Tendulkar's
'specialties' include the straight drive (seemingly nobody plays the
shot better than him), the cover drive, the square cut, the pullshot
over midwicket/square leg, the delicate leg glance, the late cut, the
lofted shots over mid-on and mid-off and not to mention the
improvisations he keeps coming up with, time and again.
Feather in the Cap
He has also won the Coopers and Lybrand Award for Player of the Year in
June 1998, backed by an amazing 40% of almost 5000 votes cast during an
online survey conducted by Cricinfo, the largest cricket site on the
'net. He has also climbed to the no.1 spot in the very important and
prestigious Wisden Cricket ratings based in his test performances in the
last two years, scoring at an average of above 57 in 26 tests.
