In the world of cricket, there are many legendary names that spun out whenever the topic of the greatest players in the sport’s history comes up, and Sachin Tendulkar’s name tops the list every time. Sachin Tendulkar, the Indian cricketer who is more popularly known as the the “God of Cricket” and “Master Blaster”, was born on 24th April 1973 in Mumbai, Maharashtra in India. He had a knack for playing cricket from a very early age. It didn’t take a while before he caught the attention of the top officials and was soon offered many chances, that ultimately led to him being a part of the Indian National cricket team. Indian cricket fans were hoping Sachin Tendulkar will fulfill the role of the key player of his country but he accomplished much more than that and surpassed everyone’s expectations. He broke and created numerous records in the history of cricket, and won tons of awards and achievements and his career statistics define his greatness.

Sachin Tendulkar’s primary role was of a batsman and he was a run-making machine. Looking at his career record, he had made 15,921 runs in Test cricket format, followed by 18,246 runs in ODI and 2334 runs in the Indian Premier League (IPL). He was also great at the bowler’s end and took 46 wickets in Test and 154 in ODI format. Cricket fans, critics, and even professionals did not just watch him play but enjoyed every moment of him being on the cricket field. Even the greatest of the great players, such as Brian Lara and Donald Bradman only had the finest of words to dedicate to the God of cricket, Sachin Tendulkar. Even the former United States President, Barrack Obama commented that he watches him play to understand why his country’s productivity drops by 0.5% whenever he plays cricket. Wisden Cricketer's Almanack, in the year 2002, ranked Sachin Tendulkar to be the second greatest batsman in the Test form of cricket of all time, only behind Sir Donald Bradman. Mind you, this ranking was made when Sachin Tendulkar was only halfway through his cricket career and there have been many more magical moments and records made by him later down his career. He was also ranked as the second greatest batsman in the ODI format of cricket of all time, serially behind Sir Vivian Richards. In his international cricket career with team India, Sachin Tendulkar has made six world cup appearances in his life. And he went on to win the World Cup in his last ever appearance, at the 2011 World Cup, playing a significant role in the victory throughout the series. Apart from winning the cup, he has received the most amount of “Man of the Match” awards in the World Cup matches that tally up to 9 and had also won the “Player of the Series” title award at the ICC Cricket World Cup held in South Africa. The list of various Sachin Tendulkar awards also includes three of the highest civil recognition in India.

Sachin Tendulkar retired from ODI cricket back in December of 2012, from the T20 format in October of 2013, and from all forms of cricket on 16th November 2013. His final test match was also his 200th career Test Match, held in Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai, against West Indies.

The Early Career of Sachin Tendulkar

Sachin Tendulkar’s official debut in International cricket with team India happened on 15th November of 1989, in a Test match against team Pakistan, held in Karachi. He was only at the age of 16 years and 205 days at the time of his debut match but his early career dates back more than that. Even before Raj Singh Dungarpur’s efforts in selecting young and talented Sachin Tendulkar for the 1989 India tour of Pakistan, he proved himself nationally. He started his journey of playing cricket at the age of 11 and became very good at it. His performance did not go unnoticed and in just a few years, Sachin Tendulkar made his debut in the Ranji Trophy, which is India’s first-class format of cricket, by representing team Bombay, against team Gujarat at the Wankhede Stadium. At the time of his Ranji match debut, he was 15 years old, and his name and presence reached sky-high. After his inclusion in Team India, he participated in a number of matches against Pakistan on the tour. His exceptional performance of 50 runs in just 18 balls at the exhibition match that was held in Peshawar, earned quite the fame. Out of his half-century, 27 runs came out of a single over against Abdul Qadir, which consisted of five boundaries, including four 6’s and a single 4. Tendulkar is not only the youngest player to have made his Test debut for team India (16 years and 205 days of age) at that time, but he was also the youngest player to have made his ODI debut for the team (16 years and 238 days of age). Tendulkar is also the only overseas player who got selected to represent Yorkshire in County cricket in 1992 at the age of 19. Before him, they never considered adding an overseas player to their roster, not even from their neighboring regions.

I have tried almost all of their games & I really like their Card games. One thing I can say say that if you want to win big, practicing matters. Took some time to study Poker and Rummy, but now I am winning about ₹75,000 a month.

I had no idea Rummy could be so much fun, yet easy to learn. I also regularly play Poker on GetMega. Playing games is fun, but playing with real stakes is so much more exciting
