Indian legend Sachin Tendulkar on Friday expressed his wish to pick up the cricket bat once again. Tendulkar, who is celebrating the 25th anniversary of his first ever century in Test cricket, got a little emotional as he spoke about picking up the cricket bat once again, just for the sake of the good old times. We know that how badly Indian cricket fans, and even those around the world, would like to see Tendulkar back on the cricket field, which he left in November 2013 after playing in his final Test against the West Indies at his homeground, Wankhede Stadium, in Mumbai.

On this day, 25 years ago, Indian cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar notched up his first century in Test cricket, when he rescued India with a superlative 119 off 189 balls against England in the second Test at Old Trafford, Manchester. It was because of Tendulkar’s effort on the final day of the second Test against England, which was played from August 9-14, 1990, that India was able to force a draw. Tendulkar, who had tremendous success batting at No. 4 in his career, came out to bat at No. 6 and played a marathon innings that helped India save the Test.
