The ultimate batsman was sachin tendulkar.Sachin tendulkar made a double century in ODI history.He became the first person of a milestone double century.He played nearly 22 years and still playing such a great batsman in the world. Its shows his mental and physical toughness.He's a player who does not throw away his wicket once he's set.He always places a huge price on his wicket.

Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar as the greatest player he has played with or against. Tendulkar was the only player of the current generation to be included in Bradman's Eleven. He is sometimes referred to as Little Master or Master Blaster. Tendulkar is the first player to score fifty centuries in all international cricket combined, he now has 93 international centuries. On 17 October 2008, when he surpassed Brian Lara's record for the most runs scored in Test Cricket, he also became the first batsman to score 12,000 runs in that form of the game, having also been the third batsman and first Indian to pass 11,000 runs in Test cricket. He was also the first player to score 10,000 runs in one-day internationals, and also the first player to cross every subsequent 1000-run mark that has been crossed in ODI cricket history. In the fourth Test of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy against Australia, Tendulkar surpassed Australia's Allan Border to become the player to cross the 50-run mark the most number of times in Test cricket history, and also the second ever player to score 10 Test centuries against Australia, after only Sir Jack Hobbs of England more than 70 years previously.Tendulkar passed 30,000 runs in international cricket on 20 November 2009, and has been honoured with the Padma Vibhushan award, India's second highest civilian award, and the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna award, India's highest sporting honour.

I agree with you that Tendulkar is one of India`s greatest batsman but i don`t agree with you when you say that he puts a price on his wicket. Just recently when he had scored a century and Played almost till the end when he suudenly hit a rash shot and got out. India had to score 350 odd runs to win and had come very close.the following batsmen panicked and got out and India lost by a very few runs. In previous matches and especially in his younger days when he was batting like Viru he always used to get out playing rash shots and the team would collapse.Sunil Gavaskar was the only batsman who truly put a price on his wicket, thats why he scored the max centuries and also became the first batsman to cross 10000 runs in Test cricket. Sachin has overtaken him and there is no doubt about his credentials and i hope that he goes on to break more records before he retires, which could be in the near future.
