Sachin Tendulkar has played a key role in Indian test cricket ever since his debut at an early age in 1992. A child cricket prodigy who has lived up to his early promise.
He has played many flawless innings and led India to many notable victories, not least over arch rivals and the number 1 test side – Australia in 2008.
Sometimes Tendulkar has been criticised for making runs against easy opposition and not rising to the big occassion. But, that criticism is not entirely fair and Tendulkar has recently made some key hundreds in the most testing of situations.
Sachin Tendulkar was the first non-Yorkhireman born player to play for the county. It was a key moment for Yorkshire CC. Unfortunately, it was not an unreserved success as his dominant form deserted him.
He currently has over 11,000 Test runs making him one of the higest test run scorers of all time.
In India Sachin Tendulkar receives huge adolation befitting a top cricket player. At times the adulation can switch to intense scrutiny as the Indians desperately seek greater success in the international era.
