Born on April 24, 1973, the Mumbai batsman has scored a record 100 international centuries – 49 in One-day Internationals and 51 in Tests – and is the first of only four cricketers to receive the highest national sporting award, the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna, in 1997/98. The other three cricketers are Mahendra Singh Dhoni (2007/08), current India skipper Virat Kohli (2018) and Rohit Sharma (2020).
Tendulkar is the first and only recipient of the Bharat Ratna — India’s highest civilian honour – which he received 2013 after his retirement from international cricket.
