Sachin Tendulkar, who is a recipient of the highest honour of India, the Bharat Ratna, was a legendary batter during his cricket career and is without any doubt the greatest of all time. He is popularly known as the God of Cricket, Master Blaster, and whatnot. He is the best batter that the cricketing world has ever seen, and there is no one better than him even today after 10 years of his retirement. He has numerous records to his name, and it is not even humanly possible to keep a record of all of them.
The most important quality of his batting is that he is technically very sound and plays proper cricket shots. There is hardly any batter in the world who plays a straight drive and the uppercut shot better than him. His determination and discipline on the field make him better than the rest.
Sachin Tendulkar has 100 international centuries to his name
Well, there is no need to explain this record to anyone reading this article, as they are familiar with the record of Sachin Tendulkar, in which he has hit 100 international centuries. If anyone is even expected to break that record, it is Virat Kohli; otherwise, there is no one in world cricket who can break this record ever.
Tendulkar has scored over 30,000 runs in international cricket, and one of them is even nearing breaking that record. When we talk about the best batters in cricket history, there is Sachin Tendulkar at the top, there is daylight, and then there are the rest of the batters. Such is the aura of the great Master Blaster.
Overall, Sachin has 100 centuries, out of which 51 have come in test match cricket and 49 in ODI cricket. Tendulkar has a career batting average of a solid 48.52, which is an insane figure in a 24-year-long cricket career.
The God of Cricket has scored 18000+ runs in his ODI career at an average of 44.83, whereas he has almost 16000 runs in his test career at an astonishing average of 53.78. He has played a total of 664 international matches in his career, which is more than anyone else in the world.
From a 16-year-old teenager facing Shoaib Akhtar in his prime to a 40-year-old experienced and legendary batter, Sachin Tendulkar’s career is a different life story in itself. Sachin has also achieved all the major peaks in his career, as he has won the ICC ODI Cricket World Cup, the ICC T20I Cricket World Cup, as well as the Indian Premier League.
