Early years and personal lifeTendulkar was born in Bombay (now Mumbai). His mother Rajni worked in the insurance industry,[23] and his father Ramesh Tendulkar, a Marathi novelist, named Tendulkar after his favourite music director, Sachin Dev Burman. Tendulkar's elder brother Ajit encouraged him to play cricket. Tendulkar has two other siblings: a brother Nitin, and sister Savita. Tendulkar attended Sharadashram Vidyamandir (High School),[1] where he began his cricketing career under the guidance of his coach and mentor, Ramakant Achrekar. During his school days he attended the MRF Pace Foundation to train as a fast bowler, but Australian fast bowler Dennis Lillee, who took a world record 355 Test wickets, was unimpressed, suggesting that Tendulkar focus on his batting instead.[24] When he was young, Tendulkar would practice for hours on end in the nets. If he became e hausted, Achrekar would put a one-rupee coin on the top of the stumps, and the bowler who dismissed TendulkarDhaneswar Majhi (

would get the coin. If Tendulkar passed the whole session without getting dismissed, the coach would give him the coin. Tendulkar now considers the 13 coins he won then as some of his most prized possessions.[25] While at school, he developed a reputation as a child prodigy. He had become a common conversation point in Mumbai circles, where there were suggestions already that he would become one of the greats. His season in 1988 was extraordinary, with Tendulkar scoring a century in every innings he played. He was involved in an unbroken 664-run partnership in a Lord Harris Shield inter-school game in 1988 with friend and team mate Vinod Kambli, who would also go on to represent India. The destructive pair reduced one bowler to tears and made the rest of the opposition unwilling to continue the game. Tendulkar scored 326* in this [26] innings and scored over a thousand runs in the tournament. This was a record partnership in any form of cricket until 2006, when it was broken by two under-13 batsmen in a match held at Hyderabad in India. At 14, Tendulkar was a ball boy for the India versus Zimbabwe game at theWankhede Stadium during the 1987 World Cup.[27] When he was 14, Indian batting legend Sunil Gavaskar gave him a pair of his own ultra light pads. "It was the greatest source of encouragement for me," he said nearly 20 years later after surpassing Gavaskar's world record of 34 Test centuries.[28] On 24 May 1995,[29] Sachin Tendulkar married Anjali, a paediatrician and daughter of Gujarati industrialist Anand Mehta and British social worker Annabel Mehta. They have two children, Sara (born 12 October 1997), and Arjun (born 24 September 1999). Anjali is six years elder to him.[30]

PhilanthropyTendulkar sponsors 200 underprivileged children every year through Apnalaya, a Mumbai -based NGO associated with his mother-in-law, Annabel Mehta. A request from Sachin on Twitter raised 10.25 million through Sachin's crusade against cancer for the Crusade against Cancer foundation.[31][32]

Early domestic careerOn 11 December 1988, aged just 15 years and 232 days, Tendulkar scored 100 not out in his debutfirstclass match for Bombay against Gujarat, making him the youngest Indian to score a century on first class [33] debut. He followed this by scoring a century in his first Deodhar and Duleep Trophy. He was picked by the Mumbai captain Dilip Vengsarkar after seeing him negotiate Kapil Dev in the nets,[1] and finished the season as Bombay's highest run-scorer.[34][35] He also made an unbeaten century in the Irani Trophy final,[36] and was selected for the tour of Pakistan next year, after just one first class season.[37] His first double century was for Mumbai while playing against the visiting Australian team at theBrabourne Stadium in 1998.[1] He is the only player to score a century in all three of his Ranji Trophy, Duleep Trophy and Irani Trophy debuts.[38] In 1992, at the age of 19, Tendulkar became the first overseas born player to representYorkshire[1][39] Tendulkar played 16 first-class matches for the county and scored 1070 runs at an average of 46.5 [40] 2.

International careerEarly career[41] Raj Singh Dungarpur is credited for the selection of Tendulkar for the 1989 Indian tour of Pakistan. Tendulkar played his first Test match against Pakistan in Karachi in 1989 aged just 16. He made just 15 runs, being bowled by Waqar Younis, who also made his debut in that match, but was noted for how he [42] handled numerous blows to his body at the hands of the Pakistani pace attack. In the final test in Sialkot, he was hit on the nose by a bouncer, but he declined medical assistance and continued to bat even as he gushed blood from it.[43] In a 20 over exhibition game in Peshawar, Tendulkar made 53 runs off 18 balls, including an over in which he s
