Sachin Tendulkar took a trip down the memory lane and on Thursday shared a picture from his debut match from 29 years ago with his fans on the social media. Tendulkar made his debut for India on this day in a Test match against Pakistan in Karachi.
Recalling the good old days, the Master Blaster posted some pictures of himself in action, saying: “This day, every year, brings back so many memories of the day I first represented India. It was an honour to play for the country and be able to represent India for 24 years.”
Tendulkar had scored 15 runs in his debut Test, which eventually ended in a draw. In the subsequent match in Faisalabad, then a 16-year-old Tendulkar scored his first international half-century. Pakistan fast bowler Waqar Younis had also made his Test debut in the same match as Tendulkar.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) congratulated Tendulkar, saying: “On this day. Rewind the clock. 1989 – Sachin made his Test debut. 2013 Walks out to bat for one final time #legend #TeamIndia.”
