Sachin Tendulkar

It has been more than 150 years since the start of cricket. Started in 1844 in East England, this game made itself powerful, strong and developed in 18th, 19th, 20th century around the world. The first international match was played in 1844 successfully. And from that time to till now in the 21st century, cricket has seen many great players come and go. Undoubtedly, nobody could come close to Sachin Tendulkar, Little Master or Master Blaster or the God of Cricket. When Sachin takes the crease, the whole of India prays from the depth of their heart. All those who played with or against Sachin feels privileged and proudly says that “I lived when Sachin played.”

No one can play shots like Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar. Subsequently, either it is a test match or one day match. In short, there will be no other Sachin Tendulkar because God is always one.
