Sachin Tendulkar is, without doubt, the greatest cricketer to come out of India, and is one of the greatest batsmen of all time. Tendulkar holds the records for the highest aggregate of runs in Test Cricket, the highest aggregate of runs in One Day Internationals and, in 2010, became the first man to score a double-century in a One Day International. Outside of sport, Tendulkar’s philanthropic efforts in his hometown, Mumbai, are widely noted and highly regarded and he was awarded the Padma Vibhushan, India’s second highest civilian award, in 2008. Due to his success, his immense popularity and exceptional image, Tendulkar has become a brand ambassador for prestigious international brands such as Pepsi, Sanyo, Visa, and Canon. Sachin Tendulkar – “The Little Master” – is an icon of modern India.
