Tendulkar doesn’t need to sledge

It was way back in 1989, and Sachin Tendulkar was making his debut in Pakistan.
Sachin was just 16 years old, facing some of the fastest bowlers at the time, and there wasnt a single Pakistani that was going to let him forget it.

The Pakistani crows were holding up signs saying ”Hey kid, go home and drink milk” (Roughly translated)

Tendulkars response was to hit 2 sixes in on over from young leg spinner Mustaq Ahmed. Older leg spinner Abdul Qadir then threw his own challenge out to Tendulkar saying ”Why are you hitting kids? Try and hit me.”

Tendulkar again remained silenty and let his bat do the talking. He hit 4 sixes in the over.

6, 0, 4, 6, 6, 6.
