I feel when somebody has been playing cricket for a long time, he creates a separate identity for himself.

–Sachin Tendulkar

Today in 1989, Sachin Tendulkar and Waqar Younis played their debut matches. Pakistan was able to win the test match but cricket saw the birth of two legends across the border. Waqar Younis is regarded as one of the best bowlers in cricketing history which Sachin’s acumen as a batsman is unmatched. Younis’s trademark was his ability to bowl a reverse swing- a style which only a few bowlers have been able to master since. On the other hand, Sachin is the highest scoring batsman of all time across all formats. The match in 1989 was played in Karachi To know that both of these amazing players did their debut in Pakistan is heart warming. .

In Pakistan- a country cricket lovers, we know that value such matches and players. They bring us together despite the political differences.
