Wonder Sachin Tendulkar does a wonder again

Updated on February 27, 2010

Master Blaster does it again-scores a double ton

It is no wonder if a marvel makes or breaks records. And it is especially no wonder when it is Sachin Tendulkar. While adding another glorious achievement to his splendid career, Sachin outplayed the best bowling attacks in the world to don the crown of the best batsman in the world. While this is not the first time Tendulkar has been termed the best among the best, but it is certainly the only time someone has scored a double hundred in a one dayer. What an achievement! But again, it's not a surprise as it has come from the bat of a batting genius, commonly known as the CRICKET GOD in his homeland, India.

The South African team would not have thought in their dreams that the game in which they would decide to make a comeback in the series would turn out to be a one-sided affair for their opposition, Indian team. The Indian team, led by Sachin Tendulkar from the front, mauled the South African bowling. Once Sehwag got out, Sachin took the charge and humiliated the South African bowling to make a world record 200 runs in a one dayer – a feat anyone would love to achieve. Though Saeed Anwar of Pakistan came close to becoming the first batsman to make a world record double century/hundred in a one dayer, ODI, he failed to reach there by merely 6 runs; however, Tendulkar, outscoring him, achieved another landmark in his decorated cricketing career. Another feat that Sachin achieved on this day was that he remained not out, batting throughout the innings, beginning from opening the innings to closing the innings with a double century/ton.

At the end of the day, it was a cakewalk for India to win the game against the South Africans, who were facing a target of 402, the credit of half of which goes to Sachin. Tendulkar has once again demonstrated to the world, particularly his critics why he is known as the best batsman in the world. It is not for nothing, after all, that Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar continues to don the cricketing crown even after the passage of 20 years. His 20-year-long career is itself decorated with great feats and achievements, which one can only accomplish in dreams. Shane Warne, congratulating Sachin, thanked God that he was not facing Sachin Tendulkar that day (24 February) in Gwalior.

Keeping my fingers crossed for tremendous more achievements to Sachin's credit in the future, I am sure the time is not far when this cricketing genius or Little Master, as he is popularly known, will be accorded with the Bharat Ratna, the only achievement that eludes his great career.

Greatness of a cricketing genius/Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar
