Sachin Tendulkar’s First Interview

Tendulkar is the first player to score fifty centuries in all international cricket combined, he now has 94 centuries in international cricket. On 17 October 2008, when he surpassed Brian Lara‘s record for the most runs scored in Test Cricket, he also became the first batsman to score 12,000 runs in that form of the game, having also been the third batsman and first Indian to pass 11,000 runs in Test cricket. He was also the first player to score 10,000 runs in one-day internationals, and also the first player to cross every subsequent 1000-run mark that has been crossed in ODI cricket history and 200 runs in a one-day international match. In the fourth Test of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy against Australia, Tendulkar surpassed Australia’s Allan Border to become the player to cross the 50-run mark the most number of times in Test cricket history, and also the second ever player to score 10 Test centuries against Australia, after only Sir Jack Hobbs of England more than 70 years previously. Tendulkar passed 30,000 runs in international cricket on 20 November 2009, and has been honoured with the Padma Vibhushan award, India’s second highest civilian award, and the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna award, India’s highest sporting honor. Tendulkar became the first sportsperson and the first personality without an aviation background to be awarded the honorary rank of Group Captain by the Indian Air Force. He won the 2010 Sir Garfield Sobers Trophy for cricketer of the year at the ICC awards.

‎4th tie in the history of World Cups

 

This has been a nerve-wracking encounter to say the least. The balance of the game shifted from one side to the other, at halfway stage the Indians were sitting comfortably at the top, but sensational batting from Strauss took the game totally away from them. But there was a Zaheer Khan, who decided to change a thing or two, came back strongly in the batting powerplay, took crucial wickets to bring India back into the game. But Swann and Shahzad held their nervers and this was a fitting end to an evenly contested game. Absolute thriller! This has surely been the best game this WC, and lets hope there are many such games coming our way though the heart takes a bit of a beating in such games.
