Sachin Tendulkar 200 vs South Africa Highlights

Master blaster Sachin Tendulkar became the first batsman ever to score 200 runs in the history of the 50-over game. As Sachin broke the record of the highest One-Day International score of 194 runs held jointly by Pakistan's Saeed Anwar and Zimbabwe's Charles Coventry during his knock of 46th ODI hundred, we take a look at the centuries he has scored so far in his career.

Sachin Tendulkarís unbeaten 200 is a testimony to his fitness and commitment even as he heads for his 37th birthday. He is looking as fit as focused
and as formidable as he ever has, and his timing remains untouched by the passing years.

Having played till the age of 39, I know that discipline, good, healthy living and focus can add years to oneís career. What I lost in pace and stamina, I gained in control and guile. In Tendulkarís case, too, he has smartly sorted out his game. He might not have the eye he had in his late 20s, or the speed ó those are the peak years of every batsman. However, Tendulkar has compensated for those areas with excellent shot selection and placement. 

I always maintain that Test cricket and one-day cricket are two different areas, one cannot be connected to the other. However, Tendulkarís rich vein of form in the longer version seems to have relaxed him and given him the freedom to play in an unburdened manner. Though I did not see the knock, the statistics I have got are staggering. 

The fact that he got the score in 147 balls itself is a huge achievement and by reaching 200 he bettered one of the best one-day knocks I have seen, by Saeed Anwar. The latter was one of the sweetest timers of the ball, and that knock in Chennai was when he was at the peak of his form. To have bettered that Tendulkar must have really turned on the magic with some scintillating shots. 

There may be many who will say that the wicket helped strokeplay and that there was nothing in it for the bowlers. But no matter what the wicket is like, to stand through 50 overs and score 200 is a very, very special effort ó an achievement that his contemporaries, Ricky Ponting and Brian Lara, would have been proud of. 

If I had had to pick up a guy as the one to score the first one-day double ton, it would have been Virender Sehwag. He is young, belligerent and in unbelievable touch. However, it was his illustrious senior who pipped him at the post. Tendulkar seems to have rediscovered an exuberance and enjoyment which seems to have taken his game to a different level, and India would be hoping that he maintains this rhythm for some time. 

This achievement would mean a lot to Tendulkar, even though he has many records to his name because every opener must have had an eye on this record. A double century has only been a theoretical possibility in limited overs so far, so in many ways Tendulkar has achieved something unusual. True, he has many feathers on his cap, but this one is a really special one. An absolutely phenomenal record by a truly phenomenal player. 
Indian superstar Sachin Tendulkar has claimed his record innings can be surpassed after he became the first player to hit a double hundred in a one-day international.

Tendulkar hit 200 not out as India beat South Africa by 153 runs in Gwalior, scoring his runs off just 147 deliveries after opening the innings with Virender Sehwag.
The previous record for the highest individual score in a ODI was 194, a mark jointly held by Pakistan's Saeed Anwar and Zimbabwe's Charles Coventry.
Tendulkar was on 199no heading into the 50th over of yesterday's match, and reached his landmark with a single off Charl Langeveldt, deliberately allowing the big-hitting Mahendra Singh Dhoni to dominate the strike.

"I knew I would get my chance in the over," Tendulkar said. "I will remember this innings. But I will not compare it with my other efforts.

"Each innings is different, the circumstances are different. No record is unbreakable. But I would be happy if an Indian breaks my record."

He stressed: "I do not play for records. I enjoy my cricket and I play with passion. I have done this for 20 years."
The 36-year-old claimed it was not until he was 25 runs short he felt a double hundred was possible.

"I thought about the 200 mark for the first time when I was probably 175-plus and only 42 overs had been bowled," he said.

"I felt I had a chance, but I didn't think of it seriously until I got really close. Only then I thought there was an opportunity to be had.

"I thought I could take the singles and give Dhoni the strike, because he was striking the ball very well."

Tendulkar already has a world record 13,447 runs in Test cricket and has compiled the most centuries in Tests. No-one has scored more runs in ODIs than Tendulkar, who indicated after yesterday's exploits he had no plans of retiring any time soon.

"I'm enjoying my cricket and I'm playing the way I want to play," he said.

"I've done whatever I thought was best for the team.

"I have made a few bad decisions as a batsman, but I think as long as I know in my heart that what I think is right for the team, I'm going to do just that."

Dinesh Karthik (79), Yusuf Pathan (36) and Dhoni (68) also contributed as India reached a mammoth total of 401 for three, which proved far beyond South Africa.

Tendulkar's new home
Sachin Tendulkar's long-cherished dream of having his own dream home finally seems to have realised. The ace batsman purchased an old villa near Carter Road, Bandra West, in suburban Mumbai.

According to reports, Tendulkar purchased Dorab Villa from its owners, the Satra Group, for around Rs 35 crore. 

"We sold Dorab Villa to Sachin Tendulkar in December," Dr Vijay Satra, brother of managing director Praful Satra, who had purchased the property, told a Mumbai newspaper.

Dorab Villa was built in the 1920s and originally occupied by a Parsi family -- the Wardens. It is a one storey structure, measuring around 9,000 square feet, but the property is spread over around 10,000 square feet.

Tendulkar spent all of his growing up years at Sahitya Sahawas in Bandra East before shifting to the plush La Mer building in Bandra West in 2001.
