A legend called " Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar"



  If there was anyone who could reach 200 runs for the 1st time in One day international cricket. Its Sachin Tendulkar. Who else could have been better than Sachin Tendulkar to cross the landmark. Who could have imagined when he opened his batting with Virender Sehwag in the 2nd ODI in Gwalior against south africa, that he could reach this amazing feat. 
Sachin glazed his way through the south african bowling attack, like he was not batting rather playing a violin, so smooth, so majestic, so graceful. To the defence of Proteas' bowlers, the pitch was a sitter, absolute batting track nothing for the bowlers. The only way they could have taken wickets, were when batsman made mistakes. 
Sachin has been a role model in and off the field. Hes been almost away from any controversies in his time in cricket. Whenever he was criticized for not playing well,  he came back strongly with solid performances. There is no shot in the cricket book, he can't play. Its absolute pleasure to watch him bat. Hes been an inspiration for young and old alike in Indian cricket team. He radiates, the spirit of success, strength and calm within him. Even when sehwag, yuvraj are boasting about the way they play, sachin sits calmly at the other end and does what hes best at play cricket.
Thers already many discussions in the sporting world, whos the best player in cricket. There has been Don Bradman, Richard Hadlee, Ricky Ponting, Brian Lara, Javed Miandad, Viv Richards, the list just goes on. And some may argue, that indian pitches are good for batting. I saw people writing, any batsman can score in such pitches. But make no mistake, this was against a formidable south african bowling attack. 
Frankly, i dont care what people think, for me, Sachin is the greatest player, Cricket has ever seen. If there is anyone deserving to be called 'Legend' its none other than 'Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar' .
Stand up everyone take a bow, coz even the gods are saluting, coz you are those fortunate people in this era, to have witnessed a Legend playing Cricket.

Let me add to that our Sachin did it without the help of a 'RUNNER' unlike the person who had the record until tomorrow. And again, after that terrific batting blisters, he was back on field while bowling. That shows how great he is.
