Navjot Singh Sidhu

Sachin Tendulkar opened the batting for the first time in the second match of the four match one day series against New Zealand at Auckland on March 27th 1994. He was forced to open the innings because Navjot Singh Sidhu was injured and no one else in the team was keen to open. It was his 70th one day international. Apart from it being a Sunday, it was also a day when the festival of colours “Holi” is celebrated in India. India needed 143 to win in 50 overs and Sachin Tendulkar played one of his best innings in One day internationals blasting 82 in 49 balls.
