10 Greatest Achievements of Sachin Tendulkar in the History of Cricket

Cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar turned 49 on April 24, 2022 (Sunday). Happy Birthday, Sachin Tendulkar!

He was known as the God of Indian cricket because he broke many records while playing. Many of these records still stand nine years after he retired from the game. Tendulkar is one of the best batters to have ever played the game. He made his international debut in November 1989, when he was just 16 years old. Imran Khan, Waqar Younis, and Wasim Akram were some of the dangerous Pakistani bowlers he faced at the National Stadium in Karachi on November 16, 1989. To this day, he is the youngest Indian to play in a Test match. 

His first half-century came in the second Test of the series against the same team. It was an early milestone in what would become a legendary career. This is how it works: This is how it worked: Tendulkar made his first Test century against England in Manchester before the end of the year. He made brilliant, unbeaten 119 runs against England. There have been 51 Test centuries by any cricketer to date. He went on to score 51. 

Tendulkar’s ODI career, on the other hand, began in very different circumstances: he had two ducks. His first 50-over century came in the 1994 Singer World Series against Australia, 78 games after that. It took him a while to get going. He made 49 ODI centuries, which is the most for any cricketer. There are a lot of records that Tendulkar has set so far. As a player, he has played 200 Tests and scored 15,921 runs in Tests. He also has the most fours (2,058). He has had the longest ODI career, stretched over a whopping 22 years. For the most runs in one calendar year (1894) and the most against one team (nine against Australia), he is the best. He also has the most ODI fives and fours (2,016).

Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar (S.R Tendulkar), who was born on April 24, 1973, is an Indian former international cricketer who is widely regarded as the best batsman of his time and one of the best to have ever played the game. He is also known as one of the best ever. The first time Sachin played cricket was when he was 11 years old. Soon, he was hailed as a child prodigy. Against Pakistan in late 1989, he became the youngest player to play for India in both Tests and ODIs when he was just 17 years old.

He played just one first-class season before that. Tendulkar went on to have stellar careers in both formats to become the all-time leading scorer in Tests as well as ODI cricket. The record for most centuries in Tests and ODIs is still held by him, with 100. Sachin has broken a lot of records over the course of his life. He also has the record for the most runs in one World Cup and the most runs in one calendar year. Sachin helped India win the ODI World Cup in 2011, which he says was the “happiest moment of my life.” It was a goal he had for a long time. Tendulkar has been given many honors by the Indian government because he has inspired a whole new group of people. 

The highest civilian award in India is called the Bharat Ratna. Sachin Tendulkar has had a lot of success in his career and has won a lot of awards. 

These are the 10 greatest achievements he has done.

#1 He got 100 in all three of his home first-class tournaments

Sachin became known in school as a child genius. On November 14, 1987, he was chosen to play for Bombay in the Ranji Trophy, India’s most important first-class cricket tournament. However, he didn’t play in any games during the 1987–88 season. The next year, on December 11, 1988, Sachin made his first-class debut against Gujarat. At the age of 15 years and 232 days, Sachin played his first game. During that match, he scored 100 not out to become the youngest Indian to score a century on his first-class debut. Sachin finished the 1988–89 Ranji Trophy season as Bombay’s top run-scorer with 583 runs at an average of 67.77, making him Bombay’s top scorer. He was the eighth-most run-scorer in the whole season. 

Sachin also scored a century in his first Duleep Trophy match and his first Irani Trophy match, both of which he played for the first time. He is still the only player to score a century on his first start in all three of his home first-class tournaments (Ranji, Irani, and Duleep Trophies).

#2 He is still the youngest Indian Test and ODIS player

Sachin was chosen to play for India in the 1989 tour of Pakistan after only one season in the first class. He made his Test debut against Pakistan in Karachi, on November 15 and 16, 1989, when he played for the first time. That match also marked Waqar Younis’s first game. He was sent off by Younis. As of March 2020, Sachin remains the youngest ever player to debut for India in Tests at the age of 16 years and 205 days. 

Furthermore, he is still the fifth-youngest player in the world to play in an international Test match. Hasan Raza of Pakistan holds the record for being the youngest player in the world to play in an international Test match. 

It was Sachin’s first test series, and he made 215 runs at a rate of 35.83 per game. In a famous incident in the fourth test, Sachin was hit on the nose by a bouncer bowled by Younis. However, he said he didn’t need help, put water on his face, and said he was fine. Blood came out of his nose as he kept playing. 

He hit the next ball for a four, even though he was having trouble. Because of him, India won the Test. He made 57 important runs in the innings, which helped them. As part of the same tour, Sachin Tendulkar played his first One Day International (ODI) game against Pakistan at Gujranwala in December 1989. He is still the youngest player to play for India in an ODI when he was 16 years and 238 days old. Sachin was sent off in his first ODI game without scoring.

#3 Third-youngest player to score a century in Test Cricket

It came right after India’s trips to New Zealand, England, and Australia to play against Pakistan. It was in the second Test against England at Old Trafford in Manchester that Sachin Tendulkar made his first international hundred. His score of 119 made him the second youngest cricketer to score a hundred in a Test match. At the end of March 2020, Sachin Tendulkar will still be the youngest player in Test history to score a century for India at the age of 17 years and 107 days. 

He will also be the third-youngest player in the world. A century in the third Test at Sydney and the fifth Test at Perth made Tendulkar’s name even better. 148 at Sydney makes him the youngest player to score a Test hundred in Australia. Another thing: Sachin is still the youngest player to score a hundred in England and South Africa. Tendulkar also has three of the ten Test centuries made by young players with less than 50 games played, and he made them all in Tests.

#4 Sachin Tendulkar has scored the most runs in Test Cricket

For more than 24 years until India’s match against the West Indies on November 16, 2013, Sachin Tendulkar was a great Test cricket player. That’s the most Test matches that any player has played so far. Tendulkar scored 15,921 runs during the course of his Test career which remains the most runs by anyone in Test cricket. It’s Ricky Ponting from Australia who is number two on the list. He has scored 13,378, which is over 2,000 runs less than Sachin. Tendulkar also holds the record for the most Test centuries with 51 hundred. As of March 2020, no one else has scored more than 50 Test centuries. Jacques Kallis of South Africa is second with 45 centuries. 

During the time Tendulkar played Test cricket, from November 15, 1989, to November 16, 2013, only two players (min 5000 runs) averaged more than him per inning. Kumar Sangakkara of Sri Lanka with an average of 56.98 and Jacques Kallis with an average of 55.44 are the only two players with a better average than Sachin’s 53.78 during this period. Part of the time, Sachin was also a bowler, taking 46 wickets in 46 Tests at an average of 54.17, which is about average.

#5: He is also the best ODI run-scorer

When India played Pakistan on March 18, 2012, Sachin Tendulkar was still at the top of his game. He had a 22-year career in one-day internationals. In his career, he played 463 one-day internationals, which is more than anyone else has done in the history of the game. Sachin scored 18,426 runs in ODI cricket, which is more than any other player has ever done. The second batsman on the list is Kumar Sangakkara, who has scored 14,234 runs, more than 4,000 runs less than Sachin. Tendulkar also has the record for the most ODI centuries with 49 centuries. 

There is a good chance that Virat Kohli of India will soon break this record. He already has 43 hundred and is second on the list. He played ODI cricket from December 18, 1989, to March 18, 2012. Only five players who had at least 5000 runs did better than him in each innings. Michael Bevan of Australia has the highest average score of 53.58, but he had a lot of games where he didn’t get kicked out. Over the course of his ODI career, Sachin made 44.83 runs per game. Tendulkar was also a part-time bowler in ODI cricket, and he took 154 wickets in the format at an average of 44.48. This is how he did it:

#6 He has the most runs in a World Cup

Tendulkar reserved his best in ODI cricket for the biggest stage, the ODI World Cup. The first World Cup he played in was the 1992 World Cup in Australia. The last one was the 2011 World Cup in India. This is the most runs anyone else has ever made in World Cup cricket. Sachin scored 2,278 runs. He also scored 6 centuries in his World Cup career, a record he shares with Rohit Sharma of India. 

It is better than anyone who has played in more than 1,000 runs in the six World Cups he has played in. Sachin scored 523 runs at an average of 85.87 in the 1996 World Cup in India. His efforts helped India reach the semi-final stage where they lost to Sri Lanka. In the 2003 World Cup in South Africa, Sachin was again the top scorer with 673 runs at an average of 61.18. His 673 runs at this World Cup remain the most runs scored by a batsman at a single World Cup. Sachin helped India get to the final of the 2003 World Cup. They lost to Australia, but it was still a good show. Tendulkar was named Player of the Series because of how well he played in the tournament.

Sachin Tendulkar in World Cup 2011

#7 Tendulkar helped India win the 2011 ICC World Cup

Winning the World Cup had been a long-time dream of Tendulkar. A few years before the 2011 World Cup in Bangladesh, India, and Sri Lanka, he had been a member of an Indian team that failed in five previous attempts to win the title. In the group stage, Sachin scored 2 centuries as India finished second in Group B. On his way to 53 runs against Australia in the quarterfinal, he made sure that India was able to reach a goal of 261. A lot of people were excited about the match between India and Pakistan, so Tendulkar led the way with 85 runs. India put on a score of 260, but Pakistan couldn’t get there. For his effort, Sachin was named Player of the Match in the semi-final. 

In the final, Sri Lanka put up a stiff target of 275 for India. Sachin could only score 18 runs but, due to the efforts of Gautam Gambhir and M.S. Dhoni, India chased down the target thus winning the World Cup for the second time; the first being the 1983 World Cup in England. Sachin scored 482 runs at an average of 53.55 in the 2011 World Cup. This was the most runs for India and second only to Tillakaratne Dilshan of Sri Lanka, who had the second-most runs. Shortly after the victory, Tendulkar commented that “Winning the World Cup is the proudest moment of my life.”

#8 First double hundred in ODIs

Sachin Tendulkar has made more than 1,000 Test runs in a calendar year six times, which is more than anyone else. In 2010, he scored 1562 runs in Test cricket, which is the fifth-highest by anyone in history. This isn’t the only record Sachin and Kohli share. He has also scored more than 1,000 runs in a calendar year in seven different years (1994, 1996, 1997, 1998, 2000, 2003, and 2007). In 1998, he scored 1,894 runs in ODIs, the record for the most ODI runs scored in a single calendar year. 

There have been 13 times when Sachin has been named Man of the Match (MOM) and four times when he has been Man of the Series (MOS). MOM: He has been the best player in ODIs 62% of the time. He has also been the best player 15 times. His 62 MOM awards in ODIs are the most by any player with Sanath Jayasuriya of Sri Lanka being second on the list with 48 such awards. This time, he has again set a record with 15 MOS in ODIs. Sanath Jayasuriya is still second with 11 such awards. Sachin became the first man to score a double century in an ODI when he hit 200* against South Africa in Gwalior on February 24, 2010.

#9 He is considered one of the greatest cricketers ever

A record: Tendulkar has scored 34,357 runs and hit 100 centuries in his 664 international games. No other batsman has scored more than 30,000 International runs with Ricky Ponting being the second on the list with 28,016 runs. No one has also hit more than 75 centuries, with Ponting coming in second with 71 centuries. 

Sachin Tendulkar is one of the best cricketers of all time because he has made a lot of great things happen in the game. As the “bible of cricket” and the best source for information, Wisden Cricketers’ Almanack has long been a favorite of fans of the game in Britain. In 2002, it ranked Tendulkar as the second greatest Test batsman of all time, behind Don Bradman of Australia. Moreover, it also ranked him as the second greatest ODI batsman of all time, behind Viv Richards of West Indies. In 2013, on the 150th anniversary of Wisden, they also put Sachin in their all-time Test World XI list. Sachin has also been Wisden’s Best Cricketer in the World in 1998 and 2010. In 2004, the International Cricket Council (ICC) began giving awards. He won the Sir Garfield Sobers Trophy for the best player in the world that year. He has also been in the ICC World Test XI three times (2009, 2010, and 2011) and the ICC World ODI XI three times (2004, 2007 & 2010).

#10 Sachin Tendulkar has been awarded the Bharat Ratna

Sachin Tendulkar has had an enormous impact on cricket in India and he has inspired a generation of batsmen in the nation. Numerous cricketers from Yuvraj Singh to Virat Kohli to Shafali Verma; have cited Tendulkar as one of the reasons they began playing cricket. Sachin has been given many awards by the Indian government because he has inspired a whole new generation. When he was very good at sports, he was given the Arjuna Award in 1994. 

In 1997, he was given the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna award, which is India’s highest sporting honor. he received the Padma Shri and Padma Vibhushan awards, India’s fourth and second highest civilian awards respectively in 1999 and 2008. In 2010, Time magazine included Sachin in its annual Time 100 list as one of the “Most Influential People in the World”. A few hours after his retirement on November 16, 2013, the Prime Minister’s Office announced that Sachin Tendulkar would be receiving the Bharat Ratna, the highest civilian award in India. Sachin is the youngest recipient to date and the first-ever sportsperson to receive the award. In 2019, Sachin was inducted into the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame.
