    A Pakistani astrologer, whose previous predictions on Indian master blaster Sachin Tendulkar came true says his career will probably end this year due to repeated injuries.

    "Tendulkar's stars show his career will end this year and the latest operation may prove to be the cause," Lahore-based Abdullah Shaukat Chowdhry has been quoted as saying by a British website.

    It may be recalled that the 32-year-old Sachin had undergone an operation for tennis elbow in London last week which has ruled him out of action for at least four months.

    One of the premier batsman in the game's annals and a former India captain, Sachin has scored 10,134 runs in Tests and a world record 13,642 runs in One-day Internationals.

    But his career has been threatened by a spate of injuries over the last years - back, toe and now elbow.

    "I use astrology charts and as per the position of the stars on the charts, a prediction is made. Tendulkar's date of birth suggests positions of Jupiter and Mars are not good," said 70-year-old Chowdhry, a cricket fan said.

    Regards

    Tendulkar's elbow injury first surfaced in Holland last year when India went there to play in a One-day tri series with Pakistan and Australia.

    It forced him to miss that tri-series, the three-match NatWest Challenge with England that followed, the Champions Trophy played in England and two home Tests against Australia late last year.

    "Cricket is my area of interest and any cricketer needing fair help is welcome," said Chowdhry whose famous predictions include former Pakistan great Imran Khan to suffer a shin bone injury in 1980s, Pope John Paul to die because of ill health in 2005, an earthquake to hit South Asia in December 2004 and Tony Blair to win a third election.

    "I used to predict a lot on the outcome of cricket matches but after some of the predictions went wrong, mainly because of match fixing, I now refuse to predict on cricket matches," said Chowdhry, who correctly predicted India's 2-1 win in the Test series in Pakistan last year.

    DO you believe this astrologer ?

    Hi,
    i would like to share some key milestones about our little master's career. Sachin Tendulkar is the most prolific run scorer in one-day internationals with 16,361 runs and the second highest run scorer in Test matches with 11,877 runs after Brian Lara. He also holds the record of highest number of centuries in both Test (39) and ODI cricket (42). Throughout his career, he has made a strong impact on Indian cricket and was, at one time, the foundation of most of the team's victories. In recognition with his impact on sport in a cricket-loving country like India, Tendulkar has been granted the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna, Arjuna Award, Padma Shri and Padma Vibhushan by the Government of India.





    He was also elected Wisden Cricketer of the Year in 1997 and is ranked by the objective scoring method of the Wisden 100 as the second best test batsman and best ODI batsman of all time.

    Tendulkar has also consistently done well in Cricket World Cups (excluding the 2007 Cricket World Cup in which India were knocked out after only 3 matches). Tendulkar was the highest run scorer of the 2003 Cricket World Cup and 1996 Cricket World Cup. Tendulkar has scored over 1000 runs in a calendar year in ODIs 7 times, and in one of these years he scored 1894 runs, easily the record for the highest number of runs scored by any player in a single calendar year for one day internationals. Tendulkar is also one of the very few players who are still playing in international cricket from the 1980s.

    No....she shouldnt quit from ODI's and tests untill 2011.....without him it is not possible to achieve the golden world cup......I think we should know something about sachin tendulkar... born April 24, 1973 in Mumbai, Maharashtra, India, is an Indian cricketer widely regarded as one of the greatest batsmen in the history of cricket.[5][6][7] In 2002, Wisden ranked him the second greatest Test batsman of all time next only to Sir Donald Bradman, and the second greatest one-day international (ODI) batsman of all time next only to Sir Viv Richards.[8] The list was later revised to make him the greatest one-day international (ODI) batsman of all time.[9] In September 2007, Shane Warne, the world-record breaking Australian leg spinner, rated Sachin Tendulkar as the greatest player he has played with or against.[10] Sachin Tendulkar was the only player of the current generation to be included in Bradman's Eleven, the dream team of Sir Donald Bradman, published in his biography.[11] He is sometimes referred to as the Little Master or the Master Blaster.[12][13]
    Tendulkar is the highest run scorer in both Test matches and ODIs, and also the batsman with the most centuries in either form of the game. On October 17, 2008, when he surpassed Brian Lara's record for the most runs scored in Test Cricket, he also became the first batsman to score 12,000 runs in that form of the game,[14] having also been the third batsman and first Indian to pass 11,000 runs in Test cricket.[15] He was also the first player to score 10,000 runs in one-day internationals, and also the first player to cross every subsequent 1000-run mark that has been crossed in ODI cricket history. In the fourth Test of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy against Australia, Tendulkar surpassed Australia's Allan Border to become the player to cross the 50-run mark the most number of times in Test cricket history, and also the second ever player to score 10 Test centuries against Australia, after only Sir Jack Hobbs of England more than 70 years back.[16] Tendulkar has been honored with the Padma Vibhushan award, India's second highest civilian award, and the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna award, India's highest sporting honor.

Throughout his career, he has made a strong impact on Indian cricket and was, at one time, the foundation of most of the team's victories.

    Tendulkar was born in Bombay (now Mumbai). His father, Ramesh Tendulkar, a Marathi novelist, named Tendulkar after his favourite music director, Sachin Dev Burman. Tendulkar's elder brother Ajit encouraged him to play cricket. Tendulkar has two other siblings: a brother Nitin, and sister Savitai.
    Tendulkar attended Sharadashram Vidyamandir (High School), where he began his cricketing career under the guidance of his coach and mentor, Ramakant Achrekar. During his school days he attended the MRF Pace Foundation to train as a fast bowler, but Australian fast bowler Dennis Lillee, who took a world record 355 Test wickets, was unimpressed, suggesting that Tendulkar focus on his batting instead.[17]
    When he was young, Tendulkar would practice for hours on end in the nets. If he became exhausted, Achrekar would put a one-Rupee-coin on the top of the stumps, and the bowler who dismissed Tendulkar would get the coin. If Tendulkar passed the whole session without getting dismissed, the coach would give him the coin. Tendulkar now considers the 13 coins he won then as some of his most prized possessions.[citation needed]
    While at school, he developed a reputation as a child prodigy. He had become a common conversation point in Mumbai circles, where there were suggestions already that he would become one of the greats. His season in 1988 was extraordinary, with Tendulkar scoring a century in every innings he played. He was involved in an unbroken 664-run partnership in a Lord Harris Shield inter-school game in 1988 with friend and team mate Vinod Kambli, who would also go on to represent India. The destructive pair reduced one bowler to tears and made the rest of the opposition unwilling to continue the game. Tendulkar scored 326* in this innings and scored over a thousand runs in the tournament.[18] This was a record partnership in any form of cricket until 2006, when it was broken by two under-13 batsmen in a match held at Hyderabad in India.
    When he was 14, Indian batting legend Sunil Gavaskar gave him a pair of his own ultra light pads. "It was the greatest source of encouragement for me," he said nearly 20 years later after surpassing Gavaskar's top world record of 34 Test centuries. This was in the same year as his first-class debut. Tendulkar never played for any Under-19 teams, crossing straight into the seniors.
    In 1995, Sachin Tendulkar married Anjali (born November 10, 1967), a paediatrician and daughter of Gujarati industrialist Anand Mehta. They have two children, Sara (born October 12, 1997), and Arjun (born September 24, 1999).[19]
    Tendulkar sponsors 200 underprivileged children every year through Apnalaya, a Mumbai-based NGO associated with his mother-in-law, Annaben Mehta. He is reluctant to speak about his charitable activities[citation needed], choosing to preserve the sanctity of his personal life despite the media interest in him.[citation needed]

    Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar
    Born: 24 April 1973, Bombay
    Major Teams: Mumbai, Yorkshire, India.
    Known As: Sachin Tendulkar
    Batting Style: Right Hand Bat

    Sachin Tendulkar created history by becoming the highest
    century-getter as India laid the foundation for a mammoth first innings total in the second Test against Sri Lanka at the
    Feroze Shah Kotla ground in New Delhi on Saturday. Tendulkar cracked an unbeaten 100 for his record 35th hundred,
    the most in Test cricket, as India reached a strong 245 for three at stumps on the opening day.

    Tendulkar's seventh ton against the visitors saw him surpass former captain and compatriot Sunil Gavaskar's tally of 34 for most number of hundreds in the all-time centurions list.

    Sourav Ganguly was batting on 39 at the other end after playing the supporting role to Tendulkar to perfection.
    It was also Tendulkar's 125th Test appearance, again matching Gavaskar and the second highest for an Indian.
    Only Kapil Dev had played in more Tests, 131.

    Tendulkar's innings helped India seize the initiative after skipper Rahul Dravid, suffering from illness, made a bold decision to
    open the innings in the absence of Virendra Sehwag who was down with a throat infection. Tendulkar reached his
    century with a single off Chaminda Vaas delivery.

    His three figure mark came from 177 balls after 277 minutes at the crease, and contained 13 fours and a six. Tendulkar was somewhat circumspect in the initial phase of his innings and had to endure a testing spell of reverse swing bowling
    by Fernando.
