Other Highlights of Sachin's career

 

Magical last over of the match - In the semifinals of the Hero Cup at Calcutta on November 24, 1993 South Africa needed 6 runs from the last over. A surprise more at this stage turned out to be the master stroke. Azhar gave the ball to his deputy, Sachin Tendulkar, who hadnt bowled till then. India won by 2 runs and went on to win the cup as well.

Richest Indian player - A multi-million contract deal with WorldTel, signed in 1995, made him the richest cricketer in the world and the richest Indian sportsperson.

Most successful player at 25 - Compared to Sobers, Bradman, Miandad, Gower, Richards, Border, Gavasker, Boycott and Gooch, Tendulkar tops the list when it comes to run aggregates, centuries and fifties, in Test cricket at this age.

Best as an opener - With all his centuries in ODIs being registered as an opener, Sachin, in the company of Saurav Ganguly has now become the best Indian opening pair and the 4th best in the world with 2361 runs (as on Oct 15,1998) for the first wicket.

Never stumped! - Till Feb 1 1999, even after 99 innings in Tests, Tendulkar was never out stumped!
