1989 Sachin Tendulkar, at the age of 15, had become the youngest Indian to score a century on first-class debut, in 1988. A year later he made his Test debut in Pakistan, mixing it with the likes of Kapil Dev, who had started playing for India when Tendulkar was only five years old

1990 At the age of 17 years and 112 days, Tendulkar scored the first of 87 international hundreds. His 110 in the fourth innings at Old Trafford helped India save the Test against England

1991 Tendulkar won Australia over by scoring 114 at the WACA, the bounciest pitch in the world. During the innings Merv Hughes told Allan Border: "This little ***** is going to get more runs than you, AB."

1992 Tendulkar was 19 years and 217 days when he passed the 1000-Test-runs milestone, the youngest to do so. He did it while scoring 111 out of India's 227 in Johannesburg. Earlier in the year he had become Yorkshire's first-ever overseas signing

1993 After hundreds in three foreign countries, Tendulkar forged his bond with Madras, scoring 165 against England. It was his first home century and it led India to a series victory.

1994 Tendulkar opened in an ODI for the first time, in Auckland against New Zealand, and made 82, anchoring a chase of 143.

1995 The little boy got married, to Anjali Mehta, a Bombay-based doctor, at age 22

1996 Tendulkar became the first batsman to score more than 500 runs in a World Cup. His tally ended on 523, with this stumping against Sri Lanka, in the semi-final, which India lost.

1996 Tendulkar's first captaincy assignment was the inaugural Border-Gavaskar Trophy. India won the one-off Test in Delhi.

1996 The year Tendulkar mania took off in India. He was everywhere.

1997 Tendulkar led India to a 4-1 victory against Pakistan in an ODI series in Toronto. It was one of India's few successes during his tenure.

1998 The year Tendulkar dominated Australia with two Test hundreds and four ODI centuries, three of which were in a row. His twin innings in Sharjah were the highlights of a year during which he gave Shane Warne nightmares by the bowler's own admission.

1999 Australia fought back at home the following year and this Glenn McGrath lbw of Tendulkar, after he ducked into a short ball, is perhaps one of the most debated dismissals in cricket.

2000 In his 253rd match - the ICC Champions Trophy final in Nairobi - Tendulkar broke Mohammad Azharuddin's record of 9378 runs to become the highest run-scorer in ODIs. He's had it ever since.

2001 Tendulkar didn't contribute with the bat to India's greatest win of this decade - against Australia in Kolkata - but he picked up three vital second-innings wickets. He scored a century in Chennai to help India win the third Test and the series.

2002 In his 99th Test, Tendulkar overtook Don Bradman's 29 hundreds, by scoring 193 at Headingley. It contributed to an innings-and-46-run win.

2003 Tendulkar scored 98 of his record tally of 673 World Cup runs in one unforgettable innings against Pakistan in Centurion. The defining moment was a savage upper cut against Shoaib Akhtar that sailed over the third-man boundary. Tendulkar marshalled India to the final, where their bowlers conceded 359 runs against Australia. The Man-of-the-Series bauble was little consolation.

2004 Tendulkar nearly spoiled Steve Waugh's farewell Test in Sydney, scoring 241 not out and 60, but Australia held on for a draw.

2005 Tendulkar took possession of another world record against Sri Lanka in Delhi. This time it was Sunil Gavaskar's 34-Test century mark that was overtaken.

2006 Tendulkar spent months out of the team because of a tennis elbow. He returned in September, with 141 against West Indies in Kuala Lumpur.

2007 More than 17 years after his debut, in England, Tendulkar was finally part of a squad that won a Test series outside the subcontinent.

2008 Often berated for not delivering on big occasions, Tendulkar scored 117 and 91 to lead India to victory in the first two finals of the tri-series in Australia.

2008 Tendulkar became the highest run-scorer in Test cricket, surpassing Brian Lara's 11,953. Fittingly, he did it against Australia, in Mohali.

2009 Tendulkar revisited his glory days with a breathtaking 175 off 141 balls. It truly was a blast from the past, for he received almost no support and India lost the thriller to Australia.

2010 Tendulkar scored 200 not out to become the world's first person to score a double century in ODI cricket.

2011 Tendulkar was India's lead run-scorer With 482 runs at an average of 53.55 including two centuries Winning

World Cup.Shortly after the victory, Tendulkar commented that "Winning the World Cup is the proudest moment of my life. ... I couldn't control my tears of joy."

2012 Tendulkar scored his much awaited 100th international hundred on 16 March 2012, at Mirpur against Bangladesh in the Asia Cup. He became the first person in history to achieve this feat.
