Sachin is considered by many as the greatest to have ever played the game of cricket. He is the leading run-getter in international cricket with 34,357 runs in 664 international appearances at an average of 48.52. He has a whopping 100 international centuries and 164 half-centuries. No other batter has more international centuries or half-centuries than the Mumbai batter.

Sachin is the first player to score a double century in ODI cricket. He achieved the monumental feat in a game against South Africa in Gwalior in February 2010. The iconic cricketer also picked up a total of 201 wickets, bowling medium pace, leg-spin, as well as off-spin. He was also one of the fittest players from his generation and was very swift between the wickets.
