Tendulkar becomes first to score 200:  Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar has achieved his top position of scoring 200 first. He became the first batsman to score a double century in one day internationals on Wednesday at Gwalior, Captain Roop Singh Stadium against South Africa. Sachin Tendulkar who is known for his records of maximum runs and centuries in test as well as one day cricket matches and now he has made a new record by taking 200 runs on Wednesday by remaining not out and become the role model for his home team. Sachin reached 200 with a single off Charl Langeveldt in the final over of the game. He earlier has broken the world record for the highest individual innings of 194 jointly held by Pakistan’s Saeed Anwar and Zimbabwe’s Charles Coventry. Sachin Tendulkar is almost as old as one day cricket. Brain Lara took more than 30 years to break this record whereas; Gary Sobers scored his 365 in 1958, highest in Test cricket. Tendulkar’s record then may not stand for a long period. Another important point is about Sachin’s bowling records which is more enduring in a batsman dominated field. Saeed Anwar and Zimbabwe’s Charles both have taken years to make their records and now some body else has to come to cross the record of 200 runs made by the Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar.
