The God of Cricket just narrowly missed out on playing alongside his idol Gavaskar, who had to retired from all forms of the cricket after the 1987 Cricket World Cup. A year later, in 11 December 1988, aged 15 years and 232 days, Sachin Tendulkar made his debut for the Bombay against Gujarat at the Wankhede stadium and also scored 100 not out in that match, which made him the youngest Indian to score a century on debut in first-class cricket.

In the April 2007, the Board of Control for Cricket in India issued a notice to the Sachin Tendulkar asking that his explanation for his comments made to the all media. Chappell subsequently resigned as coach but said that this affair had no bearing on his decision and that he and Sachin Tendulkar were on the good terms.
