Sachin Tendulkar- The Fantastico Cricketer !

Posted by Shravan
Sachin Tendulkar is said to be the God of Cricket. Mr.Tendulkar needs no formal introduction. Everyone right from a kid to an elderly person, everyone knows him. He has fan following of million & millions of people. The fan following is not just across India but throughout the world. We can say that he almost ruled the cricket world for around 24 years. Though almost all of us know about him, I decided to do this post in which I have mentioned briefly about his personal/early life, his contribution to the world of cricket as few other things. Check out this post to know why Sachin Tendulkar is the most fantastico cricketer in my opinion.

Sachin Tendulkar was born on April 23, 1973 in Mumbai (then known as Bombay) in the state of Maharashtra to Ramesh & Rajni Tendulkar. His father was a very famous poet in Maharashtra- Mr. Ramesh Tendulkar. His mother, Rajni Tendulkar worked in the insurance domain. Sachin married Anjali at the age of 22. She was a paediatrician. He has one daughter named Sara and a son named Arjun.

Sachin Tendulkar has made a lot of records in the world of cricket. He has set records for most number of test runs, most number of ODI runs, most number of tests played, most number of ODI’s played etc. He has records for most number of centuries in World Cup history as well as most number of runs in World Cup history. Apart from these, there are several other records. The list is almost endless. This just shows how talented this cricketer is!

He has done a lot of philanthropy work as well. He sponsors around 200 less privileged kids every year through a Mumbai based NGO. He has actively supported and participated in Coca Cola-NDTV Support My School campaign which creates basic infrastructure like toilets in government schools across the country. He works for free of charge or with extremely small remuneration for social campaigns and advertisements. Apart from the ones listed above, he has done several other philanthropic works across Mumbai as well as through our country.

If you are a die-hard fan of Mr.Tendulkar or even if you are not so die-hard fan but would like to know more about this fantastic cricketer, I would request you to buy a copy of “Playing It My Way: My Autobiography” which is his autobiography. It’s available online on all major ecommerce stores as well as in e-book format.

Sachin is indeed the most fantastic cricketer in the world in my opinion. I really salute him for his contributions to the Indian cricket. What do you think? Share your views and opinion with us via your valuable comments.
