Young Sachin smashes Abdul Qadir (Peshawar, Pakistan, 1989)
Sachin’s 36 (India Legends Vs West Indies Legends, Mumbai, 2020)
16 December 1989. In a 20 over per side India-Pakistan exhibition match at Peshawar, a 16 year old Sachin Tendulkar took on Abdul Qadir, the then, best leg-spinner in the world. The wily veteran bowler had earlier challenged the young kid to have a go at his bowling, and the wonder-kid obliged by repeatedly hitting him over the boundary! The world noticed….the new master had arrived!
