Sachin met the love of his life, Anjali, at his home at Mumbai International Airport upon his return from his first overseas tour. There was an instant attraction for Sachin. Fortunately, he was introduced to Anjali by a mutual acquaintance, and she had no prior knowledge of cricket, sports, or any related field.
They tied the knot in 1995, after being together for over five years. Together, they have two children, Sara and Arjun Tendulkar.
Sachin began his cricket career in 1987 when he was selected to represent Bombay in the Ranji Trophy. However, during that period, he did not make it to the final eleven in any of the matches and was often used as a substitute fielder.
