Sachin Tendulkar, the Master Batsman, who is considered a living legend in Batting has constantly been creating records throughout his career. The competitor for Sachin is only himself. He creates records and break them himself. Recently, on 5th November 2009, when India lost a match against Australia at a very marginal difference, Sachin created many records.
1. The first batsman ever to cross 17,000 runs in One Day Internationals.
2. The highest number of sixes hit by a batsman.
3. Highest number of runs against a particular team.
4. Highest number of runs by batsman in his own country.
5. Highest number of centuries by a batsman.
6. Highest score by an Indian batsman against Australia.
The sad thing is that India lost the match though Sachin blasted out. But this is not new. India has lost around 50% of the matches when Sachin scored a century.
