A 16-year-old Tendulkar made his debut into the foray of international Cricket back in 1989 and from thereon, the world saw the gradual progress of a genius towards greatness. The number of great knocks that he’s played in his life is so many and unparalleled in nature, that almost every one of his fans has different innings of his pegged as his/her favourite.

From his blazing match-winning innings in the middle of a desert storm at the Sharjah to his hundredth hundred against Bangladesh at Mirpur, the man has given us hundreds of cricketing moments to cherish.

On his 45th birthday, thousands of wishes poured in for Tendulkar.
