Sachin Tendulkar recalls 'special stint' with Yorkshire county in 1992
endulkar has scored 15,921 runs in Test matches, including record 51 Test centuries.

Former Indian cricketer and legendary batsman on Friday revealed that it was his stint with the county club Yorkshire in 1992 that helped him in better understanding the English conditions.

The stint with Yorkshire helped Sachin, then 19 years old, gain the required exposure which eventually improved his game of cricket.

"Flashback to my county cricket days! As a 19-year old cricketer, playing for @Yorkshireccc was a special stint as it helped me gain exposure & better understanding of English conditions. Fond memories!," Sachin captioned the post on Instagram.



The Maharashtra-born player had an illustrious career in the game, with several records to his name. Tendulkar made his Test cricket debut on November 15, 1989. The same year, on December 18, he played his first one-day international (ODI) match.

The right-handed batsman represented the country in six World Cups during his career that lasted for 24 years. He was the part of the 2011 World Cup-winning squad.

Tendulkar has scored 15,921 runs in Test matches, including record 51 Test centuries.

Things are no different in ODI cricket as Sachin atop the list of most runs in this format as well. He has accumulated 18,426 runs in ODI which includes 49 tons.
