Sachin Tendulkar Creates Records
Sachin Tendulkar made his place in the record books on Wednesday, hitting the first double century in the history of one-day cricket. Sachin Tendulkar’s record breaking game was watched by the capacity crowd at the Captain Roop Singh Stadium. Even after having so many records to his name, which includes this recent 200 and scoring maximum number of run in both versions of the game, some senior cricketers like Gary Sobers believe that Gavaskar was a much better batsman than Sachin Tendulkar. Back in India, a section of the media has launched a campaign to see that Sachin Tendulkar gets the Bharat Ratna.
The closest thing to Sachin Tendulkar’s record breaking feat was Saeed Anwar’s 194 against India in1997. When Sachin Tendulkar was walking back to the pavallion after the game, the crowd gave him a standing ovation.
Commenting on the media push for a Bharat Ratna for him, Sachin Tendulkar said that, all Bharat Ratna awardees are his heroes, rather national heroes and he Sachin Tendulkar would be extremely pleased to join them. Talking about his recent making double century, Sachin Tendulkar records are meant to be broken and he wished that an Indian break his record.
