Sachin Tendulkar created history on Wednesday, becoming the first cricketer to score a double century in one-day internationals after a breathtaking unbeaten 200 that steered India to a massive 401 for three against South Africa in the second One-Day International in Gwalior.

The master batsman treated the capacity crowd at the Captain Roop Singh stadium to a stunning exhibition of strokeplay in 147-ball knock during which he not only registered his 46th ODI century but also posted the highest score in one-dayers, eclipsing the previous record of 194 which was jointly held by Pakistan's Saeed Anwar and Zimbabwe's Charles Conventry.

This game witnessed two three figure partnerships in India's innings. SR Tendulkar and KRD Karthik added 194 runs for the second wicket and SR Tendulkar and MS Dhoni added 101 runs in an unfinished stand for the fourth wicket - providing the 106th occasion of a team posting two or more three figure partnerships in its innings.

He completed his half-century, his 94th in ODIs, off just 37 deliveries with a flicked boundary through fine leg off Roelof van der Merwe in the 12th over of the innings.

Some Interesting Facts

Sachin was given a pair of pads by his cricket hero Sunil Gavaskar when he was a schoolboy – and he made his Test debut for India against Pakistan aged just 16-years old in 1989 wearing those very pads…..

=> Like loads of other cricketers, Sachin is pretty superstitious – he’ll always put on his left pad before his right whenever he’s getting padded up……

=> .“He hasn’t spent Diwali at home since we got married. But it really doesn’t matter that it’s Diwali… any time he spends at home is great!” – Anjali, his wife, told once…
Once in a BBC interview when asked about his dream women, Sachin answered ‘my wife’ without batting an eyelid.

=> ”He scored a fantastic 148 in Shane Warne’s debut Test in Sydney and then followed it up with another century at Perth, one of the toughest pitches in the world, where Indians have traditionally struggled. The value of his hundred increased because all the other Indian batsmen struggled.
His weakness is the fact that he is so talented. His adrenaline pumps strongly when he walks out to bat with the noise of the crowds. You can’t hear yourself think with that noise.
I would pay $1000 to watch Sachin bat.
To score a 148 at Sydney – and that too when you are 18 — was out of the ordinary though the wicket was a lot like the ones you encounter in India, flat with lots of runs for the taking…….”
The above facts are told by Allan Border.
