WATCH : On This Day in 1990, Sachin Tendulkar Smashes First List A Ton Against Derbyshire

Sachin Tendulkar burst on to the international cricket arena as a 16-year-old, when he made his debut against Pakistan away from home. But it was only the next year where he established a name for himself after scoring a ton against England in 1990 tour.

Though, what not many know is that Sachin also got his first List A century on that tour to England as well, on this day, 30 years ago against Derbyshire.

In a 55-over tour match at Queen’s Park, Chesterfield, Tendulkar struck a crafty 105 not out to steer India home.

After batting first Derbyshire had scored 235 with KJ Barnett scoring 115. Kapil Dev picked up three wickets in 11 overs but gave away 76 runs too.

Come to the second innings, India started the chase in the worst possible way as WV Raman and Navjot Sidhu departed early. But Tendulkar held one end and did not throw his wicket away in testing conditions. Manoj Prabhakar (31) and Dilip Vengsarkar (28) also played their part in the chase.

Also what helped India was 35 extras by the English. India just managed to win by two wickets in the end.

G Miller was the best bowler for Derbyshire, picking up four wickets.
