Iconic India batsman Sachin Tendulkar admitted that the legendary Pakistan pace duo of Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis made him feel as if his first Test would be his last.

Tendulkar made his Test debut against Pakistan in Karachi in November 1989 and scored 15 in the only innings he batted before being clean bowled by Waqar.

The 46-year-old admitted that he felt out of his depth as he had “never faced that kind of hostility or skill”.

“When I went out to bat in Karachi in my first Test, I’d never faced as quick bowlers as Wasim and Waqar and never faced that kind of hostility or skill. I felt I was completely out of place back then as a 16-year-old. I kept thinking this was my final Test,” Tendulkar was quoted as saying by Saj Sadiq on Twitter.
