Sachin Tendulkar

One of the world’s greatest batsman ever, India’s Sachin Tendulkar announced his retirement from One-day International (ODI) cricket on this day, in 2012.

Known by many nicknames, ‘Master Blaster’ and ‘Little Master’ being a couple, the right-hand batting genius amassed 18,426 runs in 463 ODIs, which included 49 centuries and 96 half-centuries.

He was perhaps most known for his technique and temperament. His straight drive was among his best shots.

Tendulkar made his ODI debut against Pakistan at Gujranwala on Dec 18, 1989 and holds plenty of world records to his name.

He was the first batsman to score a double-hundred in ODIs, a feat that came against South Africa. He also won the World Cup in 2011.

Other memorable events that took place on this day

1981: Geoffrey Boycott broke Sir Garfield Sobers record of 8,032 Test runs with his 22nd Test century against India

2006: Australia bowler Glenn McGrath announced his intention to retire from international cricket after the 2007 World Cup.

2009: Seven-time Formula One world champion Michael Schumacher came out of retirement to sign a one-year contract with Mercedes.
