Aged a tender 17, Sachin Tendulkar took the cricketing world by storm on this day back in 1990 with a maiden Test ton against England in Manchester. The ‘Little Master’ became the youngest after Mushtaq Mohammad to have an international Test century to his name.
In pursuit of 408 in the final innings, India were dented early but Sachin Tendulkar and Manoj Prabhakar exhibited steely resolve to forge a 160-run partnership that ensured a deadlock. Arguably the greatest batsmen to have graced the game had trumpeted his arrival in style, and the rest is history.
