Exclusive : Sachin's 48 Test tons
November 15, 1989 marks the day when Sachin Tendulkar made his Test debut against Pakistan in Karachi. At just 16 years old, he only made 15 runs in his debut innings being bowled out by Waqar Younis, but was noticed for how he handled numerous bodyline deliveries by the Pakistani pace attack. More than 20 years have passed by and Sachin has established himself as one of cricket's finest in this period, amassing 48 centuries along the way. Through this photogallery, takes a look at these centuries made by our beloved 'Ton'dulkar.
