August 14, 1990, is the day when former Indian Cricketer who is popularly known as ‘Master Blaster’ made his maiden century at Old Trafford, England. The 46-year-old made his debut in international cricket at the age of 17 and several years down the lane became only the sixth Indian to be included in ICC’s Hall of Fame.

Both BCCI and ICC remembered the day via their respective twitter handles. BCCI tweeted, “#ThisThatDayYear: Rewind to 1990 and the world witnessed @sachin_rt's maiden international ton. At the tender age of 17, the little master scored his first ton in whites at Old Trafford. What a moment!” (sic)

“#OnThisDay in 1990, Sachin Tendulkar made the first of his hundred international hundreds. His unbeaten final-day 119 helped India save the second Test against England at Old Trafford, and made him Test cricket's third youngest centurion, ” (sic) posted ICC.

Needless to say, Sachin Tendulkar is inevitable when it comes to the book of records in cricket. He remains unbeaten on the top with 15, 921 runs in test cricket with the batting average of 53.78 and 18, 426 runs in ODI cricket with the batting average of 44.83. With 49 ODI centuries and 51 test centuries, the former cricketer is the only batsman to have scored 100 centuries as a cricketer in the world

Sachin has a staggering fan base around the world who was one among the very few players to receive thundering response just by his mere presence on the field. His tenure with the Mumbai Indians IPL franchise has given his hardcore fans an opportunity to witness the presence of ‘God of Cricket’ every year.
