Sachin Tendulkar

This page presents some of the notable achievements of Sachin Tendulkar, a former Indian cricketer, universally regarded as one the best batsmen of all time. Debates on Tendulkar's precise rank amongst his predecessors are unlikely to conclude soon. He was the sport's first batsman to score a double century (200 runs) in a single One Day International match, and is so far the only player to have scored one hundred centuries in internationals. He played first-class cricket for 26 years and one day, whilst his international career spanned exactly 24 years from 15 November 1989 to 15 November 2013.
