Sachin Tendulkar Records – The first Global Cricket Superstar

“People throw stones at you and you convert them into milestones”, this was said by Sachin Tendulkar in a press conference after breaking Brian Lara’s record for most number of runs in test cricket.

Sachin Tendulkar Records: The time, when every parent wanted their child to become Doctors, and Engineers, when Doordarshan was only the source of entertainment and playing sports was a leisure activity, not a profession. Parents and the elders often said“Padhoge likhoge banoge nawab. Kheloge kudoge hoge kharab”.

Kids were only shown UGC shows to improve their general awareness, the elder people in the house only had access to watching cricket on TV. Cricket was growing in popularity with each day, but everything changed on 15 November 1989.

The world witnessed the birth of the God of Cricket on 22 yards pitch in Pakistan. The man, who rejuvenated the depressed Indian mass through its magnificent batting and rewriting the cricket history. Yes, we call him Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar.

If cricket is a religion, Sachin is the ultimate God.  He was born to bat and announce the arrival of young India on an international platform. BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India) was one of the poor cricket board, somehow managing to pay players fees. Money was not the motivation factor for the players.

Sachin Tendulkar played a big role in opening the global market and brought sponsors in the Indian cricket. He became the poster boy of advertising brands and brand Tendulkar ruled the market for more than two decades.

Sachin Tendulkar Records: World cricket owes a lot to Sachin Tendulkar for his performances and humanity. Everyone in India is a cricket fanatic and mug Sachin Tendulkar performance statistics, but I am here to tell every sports enthusiast there are still unexplored records of Sachin Tendulkar behind the dust. Let’s relive the God of Cricket, his legends and records sheet.
