India thrashed Australia in second test, played at Banglore. With this, India have secured its first position in the ICC Test Ranking. Sachin Tendulkar played a key role to help India clinch the match as well as the series. Little Master played a marvelous innings of 214 to give fans another Diwali Gift, first being the first test match at Mohali.

Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar started playing for the nation at the mere age of 16. He debuted against Pakistan in 1989. Since then, Sachin refined his cricket with every match he played, hence to help the nation reach the top position in the world. Although with no cricket background,yet Tendiya with his talent and hard work ,proved to be counted among the all time greatest players of cricket.

He was recently considered as quite old enough to play anymore cricket, but, he still had the same passion as he had in 1989 and hence he proved all critics wrong by coming back in tremendous batting form and showing his captaincy skills in IPL while playing for Mumbai Indians.

He is currently the highest run scorer in the history of Test cricket with 14240* Test runs with career average  at 56.96. Moreover, he is the only batsman in the world who has touched the 200 mark in ODI cricket. The records list is never-ending for this Little Master. Recently he was awarded with Cricketer Of The Year By ICC yet another feather in his big hat.

Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar is a person who avoids talking with his mouth but uses his bat to talk for himself. Such legends are hence truly called “UNIVERSITY OF CRICKET”…
