Sachin Tendulkar : List of Records in Cricket and Other Information

It is about time we start to call Sachin as Sir Sachin Tendulkar. He has the most number of records in cricket. Sachin is far, far away from many others when it comes anything with cricket.

He is having a great time in the middle, and it is shown in his performance. Most international players pack their bags in 10-12 years of international career, and some make it to 14-15 years, and even fewer who just dream to chase Sachin have been dropped (read Ricky Ponting).

It is certain that money is not driving him to play more cricket, it's just the love for the game, and a desire to perform for the country.

I am a great admirer of all things Sachin, and to that, here is the list of all the records held by the Master Blaster. The list has Sachin's record in international cricket, domestic cricket, and also some IPL records. I have not included any awards here as that is an entirely different category.

The only chance of breaking Sachin's record is that Rajnikanth starts to play cricket.

You have missed one important bit of info. Sachin is part of test team that suffered the greatest number of defeats. I ask what is important 50 centuries or 50 wins? He is also a record player of being a member of a test team that sugffered 8 consecutive defeat abroad.
