What a wonderful question. Being a die-hard cricket fan myself, I learned a lot from this trivia as I found your answer.
here it goes..
Sachin Tendulkar has been dismissed the most by Muthiah Muralitharan of Sri Lanka = 8 times from 18 tests they've played
against each other. Sachin averages relatively lower at 44 per innings whenever Muralitharan is in his opposition. James Anderson, on 5th Dec, equaled Muralitharan, showing Tendulkar way to Eden Gardens pavilion. Here's a
list of bowlers who have got Sachin Tendulkar out more than 5 times in test cricket :-
Muthiah Muralitharan (Sri Lanka) = 8 outs, 18 tests.
James Anderson (England) = 8 outs, 13 tests.
Glenn McGrath (Australia) = 6 outs, 9 tests.
Jason Gillespie (Australia) = 6 outs, 7 tests.
Brett Lee (Australia) = 5 outs, 11 tests.
Hensie Cronje (South Africa) = 5 outs, 11 tests.
Allan Donald (South Africa) = 5 outs, 11 tests.
One day internationals
No bowler has got Tendulkar out in double figure times but quite a few are closing in. Brett Lee, if we add tests and ODIs, has got Sachin out the most number of times :-
