Sachin Tendulkar was, perhaps, the most complete batsman of all time. His international career lasted for 24 years and the way the Wankhede crowd was chanting, ‘Sachin Sachin!’ in his final Test was the testament to what he had achieved. It goes without saying that the master blaster owned almost every batting records when he hung his boots from the game.
He was the first ever batsman in Men’s cricket to breach the 200-run barrier in the ODIs which came against South Africa in Gwalior. Even his record of 49 centuries in the 50-over format seemed unbreakable. But the current Indian captain Virat Kohli seems to be on the way to own this record while several batsmen have also crossed the 200-run mark. However, there are still a few records which Sachin Tendulkar and are unlikely to be broken forever.
Here we bring you five Sachin Tendulkar records which will remain unbreakable:
1. Most runs in Tests and ODIs
Sachin Tendulkar was an absolute machine when it came to scoring runs irrespective of the format. He used to love batting for hours, especially in Tests, and that has led to some him amassing some unbelievable numbers. Sachin ended his 200-match career in whites with 15921 runs to his name. Yes, the man alone scored almost 16k runs in a single format which some of the players don’t even do in their entire career across all forms of the game.
He averaged a staggering 53.71 in the purest format of the game and is seems unlikely if any one will come close to his record of runs in his format. Now not that, he was only good at batting in Tests. Remember, he was the first ever batsman to score a double hundred in ODIs. He was a beast in the coloured clothing as well.
18426 – These are the number of runs he scored in the 50-over format. Isn’t it stunning? No matter how many years you play, one needs amazing consistency to achieve such numbers and Sachin Tendulkar averaged 44.83 in the ODIs as well. He played 463 matches in the blue jersey and went on to score 49 centuries.
