The autobiography of the highest-scoring batsman of all time

The greatest run-scorer in the history of cricket, Sachin Tendulkar retired in 2013 after an astonishing 24 years at the top. The most celebrated Indian cricketer of all time, he received the Bharat Ratna Award—India's highest civilian honor—on the day of his retirement. Now Sachin Tendulkar tells his own remarkable story, from his first Test cap at the age of 16 to his 100th international century and the emotional final farewell that brought his country to a standstill. When a boisterous Mumbai youngster's excess energies were channeled into cricket, what resulted were record-breaking schoolboy batting exploits that launched the career of a cricketing phenomenon. Before long Sachin Tendulkar was the cornerstone of India's batting lineup, his every move watched by a cricket-mad nation's devoted followers. Never has a cricketer been burdened with so many expectations; never has a cricketer performed at such a high level for so long and with such style—scoring more runs and making more centuries than any other player, in both Tests and one-day games. And perhaps only one cricketer could have brought together a shocked nation by defiantly scoring a Test century shortly after terrorist attacks rocked Mumbai. His many achievements with India include winning the World Cup and topping the world Test rankings. Yet he has also known his fair share of frustration and failure, from injuries and early World Cup exits to stinging criticism from the press, especially during his unhappy tenure as captain. Despite his celebrity status, Sachin Tendulkar has always remained a very private man, devoted to his family and his country. Now, for the first time, he provides a fascinating insight into his personal life and gives a frank, revealing account of a sporting life like no other.

Book Description Hodder & Stoughton, 2014. Hardcover. Condition: New. First edition. When he was a young boy, Sachin Tendulkar`s brother introduced him to a game which was to change his life and the lives of millions of Indian. The young boy was a natural cricketer, but practiced for hours on end, standing strong when others would have fallen. His coach egged him on, challenging him to up his game. And he did, becoming more than just a star in the cricketing firmament. He went on to become the youngest Indian player in international cricket, winning the hearts of millions of fans as he blazed his way to century after century, rewriting record after record. In 2013, cricket fans around the world watched as the greatest player in the history of the game hung up his boots for good. With this book, his fans can now relive the story of the man they called the `God of Cricket`. Never before was a cricketer so universally admired, loved and respected by team mates and opponents alike and never before has a sporting icon been raised so high by a grateful nation. In this long-awaited autobiography, readers will be able to see glimpses into the life of this living legend; and of the man behind the sport, the husband, the father and an extraordinary human being-- quiet, calm and with a rare humility. This is the story of Sachin Tendulkar, the most celebrated cricketer of all time in his own words. Sachin Tendulkar is an Indian sportsman and former professional cricketer. He has been playing the game since he was eleven years old and debuted in a Test match against Pakistan at the age of 16. He has represented Mumbai domestically and India at an International level for close to 24 years. Among several other notable achievements, he is the only player to have scored one hundred international centuries, to have completed more than 30,000 runs in international cricket and the first batsman to score a double century in an One Day International. Tendulkar has been awarded the Bharat Ratna for his contribution towards Indian sports and is the youngest recipient and the first sportsperson to receive the award so far. The book is in Sachin`s own words as told to his co-writer Boria Majumdar, senior sports journalist and cricket historian who worked closely with Sachin. Printed Pages: 496. Seller Inventory # 79020

Book Description Hachette Book Publishing India, 2014. Hardcover. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. 1st Edition. I knew that if I agreed to write my story, I would have to be completely honest, as thats the way I have always played the game and that would mean talking about a number of things I have not addressed in public before. So here I am, at the end of my final innings, having taken that last walk back to the pavilion, ready to recount as many incidents as I can remember since first picking up a cricket bat as a child in Mumbai thirty-five years ago." - Sachin Tendulkar The greatest run-scorer in the history of cricket, Sachin Tendulkar retired in 2013 after an astonishing 24 years at the top. The most celebrated Indian cricketer of all time, he received the Bharat Ratna - India's highest civilian honour - on the day of his retirement. Now Sachin Tendulkar tells his own remarkable story - from his first Test cap at the age of 16 to his 100th international century and the emotional final farewell that brought his country to a standstill. When a boisterous Mumbai youngster's excess energies were channelled into cricket, the result was record-breaking schoolboy batting exploits that launched the career of a cricketing phenomenon.
