Sachin Tendulkar career - Sach a wonderful career

Updated on October 12, 2013

I just came home from office and tuned in television and I am shocked. The Indian Cricket Legend Sachin Tendulkar has announced retirement from the test cricket. Yes. It's a sad day for the cricket as the Little Master has announced his retirement from test cricket after his 200th test.Whether it be Times Now or NDTV or CNN IBN, Sachin's retirement took the center stage. So 200th test will be Sachin's last test match. The Master has already retired from the other two shorter versions of the game. And now from the longer version of the game too.The version which I loved the most.


I started watching cricket because of him. I started playing cricket because of him. And finally I started loving cricket because of him. But now I can't imagine cricket without Sachin. He is role model for me and millions of fans not just India, but around the world. He is a real inspiration for millions.


Biggest Fans of Sachin Tendulkar

There are so many Sachin Fans around the world. Some are die hard fans of Sachin Tendulkar like me. But here I list out some names who are biggest fans of Sachin.

1) Sudhir Kumar Chaudhary :

Most of you have seen him during India matches. Yes. He is the Biggest Sachin fan I have ever seen. After World Cup 2011 victory, Sachin himself called Sudhir to the dressing room. He shook hands with Sudhir and hugged him. He asked Sudhir to lift the World Cup. sachin Tendulkar never forget those people who encourages him and supports him, even at the peak of success.

2) Saraswathi Vaidyanathan :

Saraswathi Vaidyanathan, may be one of the oldest fans of Sachin Tendulkar. Sachin met Saraswathi Vaidyanathan during 2011. I have added a video below. You can watch it.

3) Ajith Singh :

And you may not have heard him more or known him before. But he is one of the biggest fans of Sachin. He is a labourer from a village situated in Haryana. He has won certificate from Limca book of Records. You may wonder what is the connection between this and Sachin Tendulkar. Yes, there is connection. He has got this certificate for memorizing each and every knock of Sachin Tendulkar in Test match.

4) Raju Gaikwad :

He has a collection of more than 20,000 images of the Master Blaster.

And the list goes on. There are so many fans including me. Even some of my friends are die hard fans of Sachin Tendulkar. One of my friend is Ashok Raghavan who met Sachin during the IPL match this year. He is one of the die hard fan of Sachin. He is running a blog for Sachin.
