This Was Sachin’s Sweet Reply To Waqar Younis On The 27th Anniversary Of Their Debut

Published on 15 November, 2016 at 6:01 pm By

November 15, 1989 will always go down in cricket history as the day when Sachin Tendulkar and Waqar Younis made their debuts in game’s five-day format. The match, first of the four-Test series, was played between Pakistan and India at Karachi’s National Stadium.

When the master blaster came to bat at number six, India was at 41/4 in reply to Pakistan’s first innings total of 409. Tendulkar scored 15 from 24 balls with two boundaries before being bowled by another debutant Waqar Younis.

Sachin had no opportunity to bat in the second innings with the contest ending in a draw. However, his 32 run partnership with Mohammed Azharuddin proved valuable to deter the Pakistan attack.

Little did we know that the youngster called Sachin Tendulkar from Mumbai would begin his journey from that moment and in a career spanning 24 years would play 200 Test matches with a massive 15,921 runs to his credit, at an average of 53.78 courtesy 51 tons and 68 half-centuries.

Currently, there is no one who is even near touching distance of this record.

Twenty seven years have gone by since that historic moment and Waqar took to twitter on Tuesday to reminisce the memories of that very day.

 



Quickly responding to his tweet, Tendulkar too recalled his memories of that day.

In that match, Waqar bagged figures of 4-91 (four wickets in the first innings and none in second innings) which included bowling Tendulkar out for 15 off 24 balls.

Waqar ended his Test career with 373 wickets in 87 outings with 22 five-wicket and five 10-wicket hauls. Sachin, meanwhile, played 200 Tests for India scoring a massive 15,921 runs at an average of 53.78 courtesy 51 tons and 68 half-centuries.
