Of Sachin Tendulkar's debut, Don Bradman's 100th first class century

Past in Perspective

Past in Perspective

28 years ago on this day in 1989, a 16-year-old shy little boy from Bombay walked on to Karachi's National Stadium to his play his first Test.

Going back to his debut Test against the then-mighty Pakistan boasting the likes of Imran Khan, Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis, Tendulkar came to bat at number 6 with India reeling at 41/4 in reply to Pakistan's first innings score of 409. However, he didn't make much of an impact in that match and instead it was Pakistan's debutant Waqar Younis who left a mark, picking the wickets of Tendulkar, Prabhakar, Sanjay Manjrekar and Kapil Dev in the first innings. In the years that followed, the little boy became the "Little Master" and amassed nearly 16,000 Test runs at an average of 53.78 and a record 51 hundreds in a record 200 Test matches, breaking practically nearly all the batting records and attaining a god-like status. On the other hand, Sachin is the highest scoring batsman of all time across all formats. By the age of 25, he had 16 Test centuries. Bradman scored a staggering 715 runs in five matches at an average of 178.75, with four centuries and one fifty. He broke records at will and is the only man in history to get to 100 global centuries. Meanwhile, it will be an injustice to not mention Sachin the bowler, who could virtually bowl anything from seam-up medium pace to a googly, and it shows in his 46 wickets in Tests and 154 in ODIs, which included the best of 5/32.

After a futile and frantic search for the twoand-half-year-old boy, she called up her husband and asked him to rush to the school. During investigation, prima facie, it was found that there was clear negligence on part of the school management.

His career also had its fair share of lows. That was also the year when he broke the 200-run barrier in ODIs, becoming the first ever to to do so in limited overs cricket. The match in 1989 was played in Karachi To know that both of these wonderful players did their debut in Pakistan is heart warming. Interestingly, for both the players it proved to be the only Test they played in their careers.

Twenty-one years later, in the 2013 Mumbai Test against West Indies, Tendulkar made a decision to bid the game a goodbye as a tear rolled down India's cheeks seeing one of its favourite son retiring from the game.
