Sachin started his international cricketing journey in 1989 as a 16 year old boy and soon made the world take notice of his talent and went on to become the highest run scorer in international cricket. Also his tally of 100 international centuries sits at the top of the list. He retired in 2013 from international cricket in an emotional farewell at Wankhede that made the whole country emotional. He also received Bharat Ratna- India’s highest civilian honour in 2013 and became the youngest recipient to receive the honour.
