Sachin Tendulkar born in Bombay, Maharashtra, India is widely regarded as one of the greatest batsmen in the history of cricket.
He is the captain as well as the Icon Player in the Mumbai Indian team which is to participate in the Indian Premier League.
Sachin Tendulkar holds several highly regarded batting records and is the leading scorer of centuries in both Test cricket and one-day internationals.
He is one of the three batsmen to surpass 11,000 runs in Test cricket, and the first Indian to do so.
He is the most prolific run scorer in ODIs by a margin of over 4000 runs and has scored the most runs in international cricket as a whole. He crossed 16,000 runs in ODIs on February 5, 2008 while playing against Sri Lanka in Brisbane, Australia.

Sachin Tendulkar is the only cricketer to receive the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna, India’s highest sporting honour.
The only cricketer and one of the first sportsmen to receive the Padma Vibhushan (2008), the second highest civilian honour of India.
He is the most sponsored player in world cricket and has a huge fan following even amongst foreign audiences.
Tendulkar has made numerous commercial ventures including opening a chain of restaurants in India
He has not been very successful captain, with two tenures as captain of the Indian cricket team. He is integral part of team’s strategic processes and discussions.
Since the IPL started he was captain of Mumbai Indians and he is termed as the strength of the team . Hope he will led the team to glory even in this season . Tendulkar’s considerable achievements seem greater still when looked at in the light of the burden of expectations he has had to bear from his adoring but somewhat unreasonable followers, who have been prone to regard anything less than a hundred in each innings as a failure. The aura may have dimmed, if only slightly, as the years on the international circuit have taken their toll on the body, but Tendulkar remains, by a distance, the most worshipped cricketer in the world.
