Top 5 Nervous 90s of Sachin Tendulkar – Indian Cricket Records and Statistics

Get information on the top 5 times when Sachin Tendulkar got nervous on scoring a 90 and could not complete a century. His almost 90s may be more than his centuries.

In the realm of sports, Sachin Tendulkar needs no introduction. Millions of people around the world adore him as a global icon. Perhaps the biggest match-winner India ever produced was “Little Master.” For 24 years, he carried the weight of Indian batting and actively contributed to team tactics. Three concepts guided his batting: balance, timing, and precision. 

As a batsman, Tendulkar proudly holds all the top records in cricket, some of which will endure throughout time. In a staggering 664 matches across forms, he has amassed 34000 runs in international cricket, including 100 centuries and 164 half-centuries. But the great guy also holds the record for receiving the most 90s. Sachin Tendulkar has recorded 27 90+ scores, 17 of which were in ODIs and the rest in test matches. His 90s had their share of exciting drives and punches on par with his hundreds; some were entertaining to watch.
