Tendulkar could contribute only 19 runs in his first innings after being nominated to the Rajya Sabha.
The Master Blaster, over the years, has made it a habit of "gifting" his wickets to tyros.
Boult, who is playing in his fifth Test match, did bowl a good ball to break through the defence of Tendulkar.
The 23-year-old was naturally delighted to scalp the "big fish." Previously he had taken 12 wickets in four Tests against West Indies.
Boult will remember his 13th Test wicket for a very long time.
In India's previous Test series against Australia, James Pattinson had claimed Tendulkar's wicket during the four-match rubber.
Also, England left-arm spinner Monty Panesar dismissed Tendulkar for his maiden Test wicket in Nagpur in 2006.
Last year, during the 2011 World Cup, 19-year-old spinner George Dockrell of Ireland had sent back Tendulkar.
Tendulkar, who is about to complete 23 years in international cricket in November, is a dream scalp for any bowler. And if you are a new kid in the game, dismissing him is extra special.
