Sachin's post on the beautiful festival expressing his wishes will certainly make the day special for fans. However, the day further holds great significance from a cricketing perspective as well, considering the fact that the legendary cricketer had made his international debut back on this day in 1989. Sachin played his first game in international cricket against Pakistan in Karachi. The batsman scored 15 runs in his maiden match, before being dismissed by Waqar Younis.
Not only this, the legendary cricketer further walked out to bat for the final time in international cricket on the same date 24 years later, at the Wankhede stadium in Mumbai against the West Indies. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) celebrated the significant day with a photo collage which comprised of Sachin's first and final international games.
"#OnThisDay 1989 - @sachin_rt made his debut in international cricket 2013 - The legend walked out to bat for #TeamIndia one final time Thank you for inspiring billions across the globe," read the caption on the photo by BCCI.
