SACHIN Tendulkar became the first player in history yesterday to score 200 runs in an O.D.I match playing against South Africa in Gwalior.
The Indian legend reached the promised land in just 147 balls, hitting 25 4s and three 6s. India scored a massive 401-3 of their 50 overs, and beat South Africa by 153 runs.
The previous record was 194 not out, held by Charles Coventry of Zimbabwe.
This was one of the last remaining milestones in international cricket. The only ones left now that I can think of are a team scoring 450 in an O.D.I and a team scoring 1,000 runs in an innings.
