Correction but Hayden, Gilchrist, Symonds, Ganguly have two 150+ scores each and Lara, Jayasuriya have 3 150+ scores each.

Scahin's track record is one of a kind. So many accolades by a single person is simply unparalleled. There have been controversies but, who hasn't ?
There cannot be a player with so many records in his kitty at a time.
I will not be wrong in saying that such a player of cricket will not be born again.
He broke the mould from which such people come, when he was born.
We all should acknowledge his genius and congratulate the great player.

I hope the record last longer though! Its kinda unnerving to know that its become a more batsmen oriented game and becoming more and more a batsmen oriented game and the crowds loving the massive hits accross the boundaries and all. Free hits, power plays, shorter boundaries, Kookaburra balls etc..
Looking at the team strength and other teams in comparision, it seems there is no one else, except someone from India itself, Yuvi, Viru, to break it.

I was in office when Sachin was at his feat and the entire office came to a stand still to watch little master play. It is a honour to know that I am from the same country, city from where the little master is born.

Long live Sachin - Long live your records.

As I heard about Sachin scoring 200, I went down the memory lanes

It was my school days when I was madly into cricket. I recalled the relief I had experienced when Kumble took wicket of Anwar at 194 and discussion with my brother saying “if somebody is to score 200 in ODI, it should be in it will be Sachin. Nobody can and nobody will”

Now after 12.5 years of this conversations, Sachin you did it! Many congratulations. Awesome well balanced innings by Sachin.

Next Wish is that Sachin must get WC for India


PS: Was it Volvo Sedan S80 which was in back ground of Sachin when he lifted the bat after 200

The South African team must be feeling so clean and fresh right now.

They were after all washed out by the Tornado that is SRT.

May be an RR.

how about some awesome shots by Dhoni towards the end of Indian innings, for the first time I was blaming Dhoni why...why? take single and give strike to Sachin, we want him to score his 200.

Totally agree with you. T20 format proves it in a best way that it is batsman oriented game. Although its the people who likes to see all of these shots played and all the records broken. The only reason why a lot of bowlers might feel unimportant.
