It was in 1991-92 that I first came across Sachin Tendulkar, when the Indian team were touring Australia. I had played a game for the Prime Minister’s XI against the Indians at Canberra and he also featured in that game. However, my first distinct memories of Sachin are from the Test series that followed. Against a good attack comprising the likes of Merv Hughes, Craig McDermott and Bruce Reid, to name a few, he scored a couple of tons. For a kid that young, it was a phenomenal achievement. His technique was amazing. That was just the beginning for the genius of Sachin.
