Sachin Tendulkar Early Life
He is a descendant of a Hindu family. That is to say; he is descended from the illustrious Saraswat caste of Brahmins. A Marathi poet and writer named Ramesh Tendulkar, father was his inspiration for him. Rajni, his mother, is an insurance agent in her day job. He has one half-sister and two half-brothers. He grew up in Bandra’s “Sahitya Sahawas Cooperative Housing Society” (East). Sharadashram Vidyamandir was the name of the high school he went to. He received his bowling instruction from the M.R.F.Pace Foundation while still in high school. However, he changed his attention to batting after consulting Australian fast bowler Dennis Lillee. In addition to playing tennis, Sachin Tendulkar is a big fan of the sport. After scoring 326 out of 664 possible points in a school match when he was only 14, he became well-known among Bombay’s schoolkids.

Sachin Tendulkar Career: Cricket Journey
At an early age, Ajit, Sachin’s elder brother, saw his aptitude for cricket and encouraged him to pursue it. The Ramakant Achrekars school in Shivaji Park, Dadar, Mumbai, is where he took Sachin. His aunt’s residence in Dadar was closer to the school, so Sachin decided to enrol there.
Tendulkar made his Cricket Club of India debut at the age of thirteen. On December 11, 1988, Mumbai and Gujarat played in a first-class game. Sachin struck a century without getting dismissed. From this point on, he took part in several matches at the national and international levels.
During the 2011 World Cup success, he became the tournament’s best-run scorer with 482 runs at an average of 53.55.
Tendulkar passed 34,000 runs in all forms of cricket for the first time on December 5, 2012. He appeared in around 657 international cricket matches. In the Asia Cup on March 16, 2012, he attained his long-awaited century against Bangladesh. On December 23, 2012, Sachin declared his retirement from ODI cricket. In addition, he said that he would not play in T20 Internationals.
