Sachin Tendulkar played some scintillating cricket to become the first man in the history of one-day cricket to complete a double century against South Africa in India Vs South Africa 2nd ODI match being played today in Gwalior on February 24.
This could be described as one of the greatest innings in the history of one day cricket as Tendulkar became the first man to scale the Mountain Everest in form of 200 runs. No other batsman has ever made 200 runs in the short form of the game.
Sachin Tendulkar was on fire as soon as he stood on the batting crease completing his 50 in 37 balls. Tendulkar played some exquisite shots to all parts of the ground and looked invincible as he toyed with the South African bowling, which looked completely incapable of troubling the master.
His century against the South Africans in 2nd ODI match came almost in 100 balls and it was a tribute to the skills and guile of the master blaster. After completing his century, Tendulkar did not relax and kept firing with all cylinders.
There was pin drop silence on the ground as Tendulkar was near the double century with the crowd waiting with bated breath for him to complete the first double century in one day cricket, a feat unachieved in the the game.
Skipper Mahindra Singh Dhoni ably assisted Tendulkar in reaching the highest score in the history of one-day cricket.Congratulations to the little master for scoring the highest score in one-day cricket and it is hoped that he repeats the same game in the coming world cup.
