Rarest Pics-Sachin Tendulkar



He adds a century on home soil against England in Madras, and celebrates in style



Sachin's debut match was against Pakistan in a test match on 1989. His one-day international (ODI) debut was on December 18 against Pakistan. His maiden ODI century came on September 9, 1994 against Australia in Sri Lanka at Colombo, just six years after his debut.

















On December 11, 1988, aged just 15 years and 232 days, Tendulkar scored 100 not out in his debut first-class match for Bombay against Gujarat, making him the youngest Indian to score a century on first-class debut.

In 1995, Sachin Tendulkar married Anjali (born November 10, 1967), a paediatrician and daughter of Gujarati industrialist Anand Mehta. They have two children, Sara (born October 12, 1997), and Arjun (born September 24, 1999).











He narrowly missed out on becoming the then youngest Test centurion in Napier in February 1990, but Tendulkar finally gets it at 17 years and 112 days. A wonderful rearguard innings at Old Trafford in August 1990 still remains one of his best



Tendulkar's first Test hundred in India[color=navy] also comes against England. He hits 24 fours and one six in his 165 in Madras(Chennai) as India[color=navy] go on to win by an innings and 22 runs



A fine Nelson: In November 1992, Tendulkar's 111in the second Test against South Africain Johannesburg makes him the youngest batsman to reach 1000 Test runs. His century comes in a first-innings total of 227



Captaincy goes, but Tendulkar the run-machine is at its best in 1998. Two of his favourites - opponents Australia and venue Chennai - come together, and the bowlers pale into insignificance as his second-innings 155 turns a deficit into a match-winning total. Later, a certain Mr. Shane Warne suffers from nightmares



At the same ground in 1999, the first sign his body is suffering. In spite of a back injury, Tendulkar scores a masterful 136. India, though, fall short by 16 runs against Pakistan, and a poor fourth-innings record remains a blot in Tendulkar's CV



Even the Don takes note of Tendulkar's batting, and says the Indian batsman's style resembles him the most among those from the modern era. Tendulkar's tour of Australia in 1999-2000 - he's captain as well - is not in keeping with high expectations, with a few rough decisions coming his way



He yet tops the batting charts for India. India's hopes fade whenever he departs, and the captain cuts a lone figure as his team loses all three Tests. He steps down from captaincy during South Africa's visit in 2000



Tendulkar makes 10 in both innings, but he picks up three wickets in the Australia's second innings as India win the epic Test at Eden Gardens in 2001 to level the series



India and Tendulkar have an unsuccessful tour of New Zealand in 2002-03. The team begins the 2003 World Cup in South Africa under pressure; however, they make it to the final with Tendulkar the Player of the Tournament



A workmanlike innings in Sydney during the 2003-04 Australia tour helps Tendulkar to his first double-century overseas. His unbeaten scores of 241 and 60 - in Steve Waugh's farewell Test - almost results in a series win



Another 10,000: During his 52 against Pakistan in the Kolkata Test in 2005, Tendulkar becomes the first to score 10,000 runs in both Tests and ODIs



At home in Australia: The crowds are entertained as Tendulkar makes two hundreds in the four-Test series in 2007-08. India lose 2-1, but Tendulkar goes home a happy man, scoring 117 not out and 91 as India beat Australia in the finals to clinch the tri-nation one-day tournament



Playing a Test in Pakistan after nearly 15 years, Tendulkar scores an unbeaten 194 - a declaration denies him the double. However, it's Virender Sehwag - who developed with Tendulkar as a role model - who steals the show in Multan, becoming the first Indian triple-centurion



Captaincy comes calling, and Tendulkar leads India to a win in the one-off home Test against Australia to bag the newly instituted Border-Gavaskar Trophy, named after two players he would eventually join in the 10,000-run club

A special win: Tendulkar holds the trophy after India beat England 1-0 during their 2007 tour, his first series victory outside the subcontinent



Come Chennai and he's back to his best. Makes a hundred in the first innings as India win a memorable series 2-1






At home in Australia: The crowds are entertained as Tendulkar makes two hundreds in the four-Test series in 2007-08. India lose 2-1, but Tendulkar goes home a happy man, scoring 117 not out and 91 as India beat Australia in the finals to clinch the tri-nation one-day tournament



Playing a Test in Pakistan after nearly 15 years, Tendulkar scores an unbeaten 194 - a declaration denies him the double. However, it's Virender Sehwag - who developed with Tendulkar as a role model - who steals the show in Multan, becoming the first Indian triple-centurion


He's out stumped for the only time in his career, in Bangalore, but Tendulkar is still the best batsman on show and the Player of the Series as India win 1-0








As captain on the 1999-2000 tour of Australia, Sachin Tendulkar practises his bowling - but he struggles as a leader
