Sachin tendulkar is a great batsman in the world. He recently score 17000 runs in a ODI match. He achieved a mile stone in his life.

Granted!.. Sachin has all the records a batman could dream of in his life. I guess he also has the record of having most number of records in cricket.But my question is have his achievements done justice to the team? Has any of his records helped india to win a world cup? Think of all other great batsmen in the history and they have all achieved less than sachin personally but have done much better for the team. Can you think of a batsman facing a maiden over when he is on 99 when the bowler is asif Karim? you would ask who is asif karim, he is a gintle left arm orthodox bowler who represented Kenya in 1996 world cup. Imagine Sachin scored 526 runs in that world cup but the pressure of scoring a century got to him so much that he let Karim bowl him a maiden. Can you imagine a sehwag, gilchrist, yuvraj or Hayden doing that? Sachiin is great.NO doubt. He is gifted but then we also have to agree that hi has a weak mind when it coimes to achieveing personal glory. And he has put personal glory before teams need at times.

cricket is my religion and sachin is my god...sachin the name itself strikes terror in the heart of every bowler..17000 ODI runs,more than 12500 test runs...87 centuries..49 short of 30000 international runs...this says it all..every record books contain one prime name and that is sachin...serving the country for near about 20 years and carrying the expectation of 110 crore people on his shoulder is really amazing...sachin is the only player that receives standing ovation once he steps down to the cricketing field..... We all love you sachin may you reach numerous height in your career...

An innings of 20 years is not a joke. How many people in the cricket playing world would get this span of time? But Sachin R Tendular is an exception. He is a matchless man. It would be difficult to surpass Tendulkar by any one in near future either. His 17000 runs in ODI and 45 centuries and 92 half centuries themselves speak of his talent. I hope he remains fit another 5 odd years to represent India.
