Sachin Tendulkar was the first overseas player to play county cricket for Yorkshire. YCCC was founded in 1863, one of the primary rules of the club was, no one could play for Yorkshire who wasn't born in the county. In 1992, the birth qualification rule was first modified to include those educated within the county, a dispensation that allowed Michael Vaughan to play; and was then abandoned altogether. Yorkshire's first overseas player that season was 19-year old Sachin Tendulkar.
