Tendulkar in Wisden

by Anjali Doshi | 11 February 2016
Category: Cricket
Sachin Tendulkar, who retired from playing in 2014, is universally acknowledged as one of the greatest cricketers of all time - and arguably the greatest batsman ever. From the time Tendulkar made an appearance as a schoolboy cricketer in the 1989 Wisden Cricketers' Almanack to his retirement in 2014, Wisden on Tendulkar records the highlights of an exceptional career - handpicked from all Wisden publications over a quarter of a century and curated for a global audience, with special appeal to an Indian readership. Wisden on Tendulkar includes reports from his first Test in Pakistan as a 16-year-old - where a Waqar Younis bouncer had him bleeding - to his final Test at home, when a country wept as it said goodbye to its most celebrated sporting icon. The most prolific run-getter of all time, the most diverse Test and one-day batsman, the world's most eminent cricketing hero, Tendulkar has many records to his name. His place in cricketing history is especially significant - not just for all the records he broke or comparisons with Don Bradman, but for what Tendulkar meant to a young nation finding its voice in a globalised world. Wisden on Tendulkar includes: - Cricketer of the Year feature (1997) - Batting for a Billion article (2003) - The Long Farewell piece (2014) - The ebbs and flows of Tendulkar's 24-year-long career - Scorecards of his most significant Test and ODI matches - Colour plate section - Detailed list of records
