During his school life he starts to train as a fast bowler. But he is very interested to establish himself as a batsman. As a young Tendulkar would practice for hours at the net and was driven hard by his coach Ramakant.
In his school life, his extra ordinary batting skills got noticed by the sports circuit. Then people felt that he would soon become one of the greats in cricket world.
In 1988 season, he scored a century in every inning that he played. And in 1988 the inter school matches he had an unbroken 664 run partnership with his friend and team mate Vinod Kambli.
