Sachin Tendulkar was the First Batsman to be given out by the Third Umpire!
The first third umpires were Karl Liebenberg and Cyril Mitchley, who debuted as TV Officials in the first test between South Africa and India in the 1992/1993 series, on November 13, 1992. The first dismissal they had to make was that of Sachin Tendulkar, who they gave 'run out', for 11.
Sachin Tendulkar was the unfortunate batsman to first be given 'out' by the third umpire. Tendulkar was run out for 11 on the second day of the Test, which was on the 14th November 1992. The TV umpires were Karl Liebenberg and Cyril Mitchley.
The second batsman to be given 'run out' by the Third Umpire was Kepler Wessels of South Africa, on the third day of the second test in the South Africa v India series of 1992-1993. The exact date was Saturday 28th November 1992. Wessels was, like Sachin Tendulkar (the first batsmen to be given 'run out' by the Third Umpire) given out on 11. Kepler Wessels was the first South African to be given out by the Third Umpire.
