It was a memorable moment for me watching the innings of tendulkar against one of the best bowling attack in ODI cricket. This inning of tendulkar is also the first ever double hundred in ODI cricket.
Tendulkar proves that why he has all the best and important records of cricket in his name. Even Anwar says that he has no reason for disappointment because his record is broken by the god of records - SACHIN TENDULKAR
Sachin Tendulkar is a great player, he breaks many records in One Day International and Test Cricket. More than 24 World records in Cricket history are in his name. Sachin Tendulkar's name the first position in Top Ten highest individual scorers list of ODI Cricket history. Sachin Tendulkar breaks the World record of Highest Individual Score in ODI Cricket with a tremendous innings at Gwalior against South Africa. Sachin Tendulkar batted against World's best bowlers like Stein, Kallis, Parnel etc. Sachin Tendulkar is the first and the only batsman Scored Double Century in ODI Cricket History.
Before 5 years, he was the total Indian cricket team. In that period,he was the only player playing long innings and scoring runs with good strike rates. That time, the celebration by the opponent team when Sachin is getting out will be equal to the match winning celebration. Because, if sachin is out, then the whole Indian team out that time.
The new shorts created by him has been used by the other leading players of the world. In a test match against Australia, his wicket was taken by Shane warne. That delivery hit the stumps by pitching far outside the leg stump and spun back. In the next match, Sachin found a couple of shorts to play those deliveries to the boundary and implemented. At that time, the bowler Shane warne himself clapped by looking this performance of sachin.
The coca cola cup 2003 was got by the Indian team by the oe man sole performance Sachin. In that triangular series, his two consecutive centuries got the Indian team to get the cup from the status of struggling to get qualified t the finals.
The man who has this much capacity will achieve anything. So this is not a surprising achievement.
Hats off to her and Sachin still lacks behind her.
But Tendulkar, being the modest soul he is, said comparisons between players of different eras are unfair and it would be better if every individual's achievements are celebrated rather than compared.
But in some where i read that Sachin not the 1st one to score 200 in ODI?
The whole world is celebrating and congratulating Master Blaster, Sachin Tendulkar on scoring the first double century in the ODI history. It is undoubtedly a great one, but if I tell you that he’s not the first one to score 200 in ODI, how would you react to it???
Belinda Clark, an Australian Women Cricketer scored the first ever double century in the history of ODI before 13 years on December 16, 1997 in Mumbai. She scored 229(not out) against Denmark, which was the first double century in ODIs at the International level.
I am very happy that Sachin made this record of highest score in ODI cricket and become the first cricketer to smash 200 in this format of game.
All the important records is on his name and a lot is more to come from this great batsman.
