New Delhi: Cricketer Sachin Tendulkar today began a new innings as a member of Parliament.

He took oath as member of Rajya Sabha to which he was nominated on April 26.

39-year-old Tendulkar, who was accompanied by his wife Anjali, took oath in the chamber of Rajya Sabha Chairman Hamid Ansari.

"Cricket comes first," Tendulkar said when reporters asked whether he preferred cricket to Parliament.

Two others — actor Rekha and industrialist Anu Aga — who were nominated to Rajya Sabha along with Tendulkar, had taken oath last month when the House was in session.

Tendulkar was busy with the IPL season, which ended on May 27.

He had created history by scoring 100 international centuries in March this year.
