THE biographer of Sachin Tendulkar is in Northern Ireland next week, to tell the story of how the book came about and how it evolved.

Tendulkar, recognised as one of the greatest batsmen of the modern era, retired immediately after his 200th Test match – the only batsman to reach that landmark so far – in November 2013 with a world record 15,291 runs.

Adding on his 463 one day internationals, he compiled exactly 100 international centuries.

Professor Boria Majumdar was the man who put his life and career into words, starting with the highlight of his career, the 2011 World Cup final which India won in his home city of Mumbai.

His engaging talk, entitled “The Unknown Sachin: The story of writing Playing It My Way”, - a must for any fan of the ‘Little Master’ - will be in the University of Ulster on Tuesday (28th) at 6.30pm and admission is free
