Born and brought up around the lush green meadows of coastal Karnataka, Sachin hails from Udupi. The 22-year-old left handed specialist batsman started practicing leather ball cricket at UCA camp at the age of 8 on the insistence of his father who as Sachin has said, is a big fan of the sport. Sachin has played the junior level cricket at Under-13 and Under-16 categories with the scores of 95 and 164 being the most memorable ones.
While speaking about his junior cricket career and favorite cricketers he said, “While playing the inter-state tournaments, some of the opposition I have played against consisted of names like Vijay Zol and Sanju Samson as well. When it comes to favorites, I am a huge follower of Yuvraj Singh and in the Karnataka circuit, I have to say it is Rahul Dravid.”
The youngster moved to Bangalore at the age 16 for his pre-graduate studies and started playing first division cricket for Herons Cricket Club. Sachin also holds a B.Com degree from Jain College, Bangalore and aims to be ‘Great in his own way’ in life.
