Sachin becomes first Indian to feature on the cover of Wisden Cricketers’ Almanack

Screenshot_2The 2014 edition of Wiesden Cricketers’ Almanack recently published has retired legend Sachin Tendulkar on its cover. This is the 151st edition of the Wisden Cricketers’ Almanack. Tendulkar also became the first Indian cricketer to feature on the cover of the ‘Almanack’. Earlier Sachin was chosen to feature on the cover of the 2nd edition of the ‘Wisden India Almanack’. The yellow page shows Tendulkar walking out of the Wankhede stadium after playing his last innings against the West Indies in November 2013. 

Wisden has made a very interesting comparison of Tendulkar’s record with England Captain Alastair Cook and Australian Captain Michael Clarke. In December 2013, in Perth (Australia) when for a few moments:

  • 1 Cook + 1 Clarke = 1 Tendulkar (i.e. 200 Test Matches with exactly 15,921 runs and 51 centuries).
