Most appearances in ODI's, most ODI hundreds, most test hundreds, most international hundreds, most runs in test and one day cricket history, most runs in a calendar year, most runs in any world cup, the pages of record books would prove to be insufficient to record the achievements of this cricketing Maestro. Sachin Records are the one's made to be beaten by Sachin only now! :).
