November 15: A special day for Sachin Tendulkar, recalls childhood friend Vinod Kambli

Known as the 'God of Cricket', the legend made his international debut on 15 November 1989. 
He played the first match of his Test career against Pakistan in Karachi. Pakistan's veteran Waqar Younis also made his international debut in this match.

The match between India and Pakistan was a draw, but the special thing was that one of the debutants was dismissed by the player who made his debut for the crop. Playing under the captaincy of current PM Imran Khan, Pakistan scored 409 in the first innings. After that India could only make 262 runs. The hosts then declared the innings at 305 for five in the second innings. Chasing a target of 43, the Indian team scored 3030 for 3 with the help of a century from Sanjay Manjrekar (113 not out) and the match was a draw. Kapil Dev, who took 7 wickets in the match, was declared Man of the Match.

The BCCI has recalled Sachin Tendulkar's debut in international cricket today by tweeting. The BCCI has tweeted two pictures, the first of which is of Sachin's debut and the second of the last match he played when he retired. The ICC also tweeted a special reminder of the day. "We were all very excited when we first saw Sachin playing," tweeted Vinod Kambli, Sachin's childhood friend. There is a lot of pride when a friend of yours is playing for the country at such a young age.

Tendulkar later set many records in the world of history-making cricket and made his name in the 'All-time Great Batsman'. Tendulkar is also called a 'master blaster'. Tendulkar retired from international cricket in 2003. He is the highest run scorer in both Tests and ODIs. He also holds the record for most international centuries to his name. In his international career, Tendulkar has scored a total of 34,357 runs. That is 6,000 runs more than second-ranked Kumar Sangakkara of Sri Lanka.
