Virat Kohli’s impending arrival at Surrey has made quite the splash but it is nothing compared to the tsunami Sachin Tendulkar created at Yorkshire 26 years ago.
With 100 international centuries and a World Cup to his name, it is easy to forget that India’s greatest ever player once lived in Dewsbury and made County Championship tons at Chester-le-Street.
Aged 19 in 1992, it was clear the talent was there. He was already a fixture in the Indian Test team and had made a century against England two years before.
But it is unlikely that the locals knew the teenager who dabbled in snooker and sampled local frothy bitters would go on to become arguably the best of them all.
