Sachin first test experience in his words .....
In 1989 when i selected for Pakistan series i felt so much happy. In my first international visit i faced world famous bowlers. Imaran bowled four bouncers continuously. I was shocked and said my self as welcome to international cricket. I played with all famous bowlers Wakar, Yonis, Imran,Akram, Akihib, Mustaq and Abdula Khadar in this series itself. I was afraid when Wakar ball spoiled my nose due to my wrong expectation in its hight. Blood came out from nose flowing on myshirt. Even miyandad came asked me to go hospital satirically. Miyandad joke is one side but a strong joke played by one of the Pak fan is still in my mind. The fan said to me as " Hey boy please go home and have milk".
In my first day itself i understood my situation how much its complex to play with such bowlers. In another shocking moment on one man who wear'ed Salwar Kamiz came in to ground and started shouting at Kapil. Later he reached Prabhakar and repeated same. Finally he went to Captain Sreekanth and tried to hit him. I thought next chance is mine. Then immediately i ran into Dressing room. Though the tour was personally good for me we never got a feeling of playing cricket.
