SACHIN RAMESH TENDULKAR was born in India on April 24th, 1973, and is considered one of the best batsmen in cricket to date. He played for Bombay and India. Sachin was a right-hand batsman and bowler who could bowl both leg and off-breaks.
He has scored more international centuries than anyone else, earning him a reputable reputation.
During his school days, Tendulkar was trained under Ramakant Achrekar (reputed club cricketer at Shivaji park), who was named after his favorite music director Sachin Dev Buran.
On the advice of his coach, he shifted to Sharadashram Vidyamandir High School in Dadar, which was dominating the cricket sport. While attending the Indian Education Society's New English School in Bandra, he played club cricket and later for the Indian Club Cricket team.
Later, he trained as a fast bowler at the MRF Pace Foundation in Chennai, but Dennis Lillee advised him to focus on his batting abilities instead (he has taken 335 wickets in his Test career, which is a world record). After the recommendation of Dennis Lilee, he intensified his hard work on batting skills rather than fast bowling.
A well-known Marathi novelist, Ramesh Tendulkar (Father), and an insurance agent, Rajni Tendulkar (Mother) raised him.

After playing 123 tests, he eclipsed Sunil Gavaskar by scoring his 35th test century against Sri Lanka.
When India lost to Australia in the finals of the 2003 World Cup, Tendulkar was named man of the tournament. He scored 673 runs in 11 matches.
The 2007 World Cup was Tendulkar's downfall, and he was heavily criticized.

Sara Tendulkar and Arjun Tendulkar are now the couple's children.
They are proud of their son, Arjun Tendulkar, who plays for the U-19 Indian Cricket Team and draws attention to his bowling skills.
Mike Denness accused him of on field ball tampering during the India tour of South Africa, for which he was suspended for a test and fined 75% of his match fee.
When Michael Schumacher gifted him the Ferrari Modena 360, the government tried to free him from paying an import tax fee of 120%. He suffered even more hatred when he sold the Ferrari to a businessman in Surat.
