Here is Sachin... making History again!



With the ever increasing runs in Cricket and after the introduction of T20, no score seems unattainable. Yet the question that who will reach the 200 mark in the ODIs was still unanswered. Many have reached close to that, the closest being 194, but none crossed it yet in the history.

Sachin Tendulkar collared South Africa's attack on his way to a historic unbeaten 200 as India amassed 401 in the second ODI in Gwalior
It came today, finally out of the bat of - none other than the master himself - Sachin Tendulkar! In the second ODI of the three match series with South Africa, it was Sachin who reached the milestone of 200 runs in a one day inning and helped India cross the 400 runs mark.
It was a historical moment. With Sachin reaching first ever double ton in the history of the ODI cricket and India crossing the 400 mark against the strong opposition like South Africa, what else you can ask for? May be India to cross the highest ever total of 443 that was posted by Sri Lanka against Netherlands in 2006; but leave that record for any other day, we have enough reasons to celebrate today!

Hats off to Sachin, it was great to watch him play that way. I hope he plays like that forever!
