His remarkable score of 143 runs off just 130 deliveries led India to an improbable triumph and propelled Sachin's fame to new heights. During the event held in Mumbai, the legendary batsman reminisced about that incredible innings.
Tendulkar's outstanding performance in the Desert Storm match propelled him to the big league, and it served as a crucial foundation for his future achievements over the next 12 to 15 years.
