new Delhi: Master blaster Sachin Tendulkar (Sachin Tendulkar) has contributed significantly in bringing Team India to the heights. This great batsman made his debut in international cricket on this day i.e. 15 November 1989. With his batting, he was able to make cricket fans around the world crazy. At the age of 16, Sachin played his first match in the international cricket world with a Test match against Pakistan at the National Stadium in Karachi. Salil Ankola also played his first international match with Sachin on this day.

However in the first innings of the Test match, Sachin was able to score only 15 runs and then was dismissed for the ball of Waqar Younis, playing his first match for Pakistan. The match was a draw and so Sachin did not get a chance to play the second innings.

A strange coincidence is that on 15 November 2013, Sachin landed on the field to bat for the last time. He played his last match against the West Indies at the Wankhede Stadium in his hometown Mumbai. Sachin scored 74 runs in this match. In this match too, Sachin did not get a chance to play second innings. India won this match by an innings and 126 runs.
The BCCI said in its tweet, ‘Today, in the year 1989, Sachin Tendulkar played his first international match. In 2013, this great player was the last time he landed for India. Thank you for inspiring millions of people all over the world.
