“To be honest, every cricketer here grew up having a target in front of them, which as obviously to meet Sunil Gavaskar’’s record. And that is, most of us were told, that is where you have to reach if you have to play serious cricket and to become a big player where people would remember you. So that was sort of a target,” said Tendulkar.

Tendulkar holds a number of batting records, including the highest aggregate of one-day runs (16,361) and centuries (42). He also holds the record for most Test hundreds (41).
